Reg empty droplet unused host server billing?

Hai, I am a new user on digital ocean, I wanna account on the digital ocean for my web application purpose. But still, I am working & development my project from my local system it’s to take more than 3 months from now. I tried to create an account today & added credit card.

I want to hold my credit card bill until I start/move my codes to live

What I do now?

I did remove my droplet now?

What I do next?

I don’t need any billing from my account.

But account required (optional)

Kindly advice me.

If you don’t want to be billed you can destroy the droplet and there will be no charges to your account.

If you have already set things up on your droplet, you can take a snapshot of it, and then destroy the droplet and again if the snapshot is small until you accumulate a total balance of $1 there will also be no charges to your account.

Hope that helps!
