Hi,
here is our droplet :206.189.129.66
the current specifications are 32GB ram, 400GB hard disk.
which we dont need it now unless we use it.
We wanted it to bring down to 1gb ram(default).
please help us decrease the size and reduce our costs. or else please let us know we will take out everything from digital ocean and use others who are providing same services.

You need to take a snapshot image of the droplet and then shutdown and delete the droplet. The your costs drop down to only the negligible disk space used to store the snapshot.
Once you’re ready to use the droplet again, you can restore the snapshot image back to its original state and resume being charged at that rate.
