Pricing 3 environments

Hello all. How are different environments priced (dev, qa, prod). Suppose my app requires a Droplet, DB and App Platform (totaling about $19/month).

Assuming I’ll have a dev, qa and prod environments, will that translate to 19 * 3 = $57/month (give or take, given actual use), or are there any shared pricing calculations taking place?

Hello @morsagmon

For the most accurate and up-to-date pricing information, please visit the DigitalOcean Pricing page.

Regarding your question about pricing based on different environments, each environment (dev, qa, and prod) would typically require its own separate resources. While it depends on the specific usage and requirements, it’s possible that it could translate to nearly 3 times the cost you mentioned. However you can host the 3 environments on a single droplet and this will not require for you to pay 3 times the price of the droplet.

However, for a more detailed breakdown of the costs, please refer to the DigitalOcean Pricing page and the DigitalOcean documentation for additional information.

Hope that this helps!
