Request a info on $5 price tag.

hey there, I understand the price of getting space on digital ocean. Its starts from $5 per month. I saw in your FAQs it is said that after certain amount of transfer you charge $0.02. What does this exactly mean ? Do you mean by x number of page view ? Will i end up paying more then $5 / month at any time? My primary purpose of using digital ocean will be blogging on ghost platform and play with servers.

Apart from above questions I also need some info about your support to any other hosting company. Like for example if I want to start a hosting business can I access or use your servers through your APIs to provide the service to our customers. Basically on a high level can I provide the same service like you using your APIs?

Please let me know and eager to hear from you.

Regards, Sumit
