I have a standard droplet($5/month). My main concern is a DDOS attack would generate a big charge, so I would like to know if there is a way to setup a limit spending in my droplet?

Yes you can set up a billing alert to get an email if your usage goes over a certain amount. Instructions on how to set one up are here: https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/billing/billing-alerts/

Hello, mcrhistianrs

You can set up a billing alert as per celiawelia suggestion. In this way you will be notified if the usage goes over a certain amount and you can then take some actions.

If you still have some concerns about this, you can also reach to our support team.
