New customer here. I would like to create multiple droplets and i have question on billing. Do i get billed on droplets that are NOT powered ON? I’m trying to do some POC and I just need the other droplets for testing. THANK YOU

It’s not make sense. Why are DO reserved these CPU and memory on me ? Where is the Cloud ? Give these resource to another user.

Yes you do get charged for powered off droplets because its reserving your space,ip,etc. If you wish, create a snapshot then destroy the droplet and then restore it later when you need it.
