Posted January 5, 2014 4.8k views
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

  • Yes. Your diskspace, CPU, RAM, and IP address are all reserved while your droplet is powered off. If you want to save a droplet for future use take a snapshot of it and then destroy it. You’ll be able to create a new droplet from the snapshot image anytime to bring it back online.

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.

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.
