is 5$ fixed per month or does it grow if more requests are hit?

I would like to have a droplet for 5$ for a month,

Here are a few questions, Does 5$ fixed per month. I don’t care if my server crashes, I would like to have fixed cost usage.

If I have lot of requests then does digital ocean charge more than 5$ stating u have cross limits? Or is it a fixed VPS for 5$ per month?

Hey friend!

The $5 per month is fixed with two exceptions:

  1. We’re required to charge you a tax (depends on where you are).
  2. You use more than 1TB of outbound bandwidth.

I can’t imagine using more than 1TB of outbound bandwidth on normal use cases. VPN, TOR, Torrents, these are things I can see using over 1TB of outbound bandwidth. Websites and such, not so much.
