Network transfer billing on hourly Droplet usage

  • Posted August 28, 2014


I’m going to deploy a complex system which will dynamically create Droplets if average load of nodes gets high. The new droplet will be destroyed if the load decreases.

How will you charge network transfer consumed by a Droplet created dynamically and destroyed after some hours of usage?

Thanks, Serghei

  • They charge you per hour of usage
  • If Droplet is powered off (not destroyed) you are charged for reserved RAM, CPU, IP and SSD space
