What does the 'Droplet Limit' mean?

Posted July 27, 2014 7.6k views

Is it a limit on how many droplets can exist at once, or how many you are allowed to create? If it is a limit on how many you can create, is it by week/month/year/etc? I understand it can be raised, I just don’t know what it actually means.

For example, when I created my account I created and destroyed a couple droplets to understand the process. These boxes are destroyed. Do they count against my limit?

The “Droplet Limit” is the maximum amount of droplets you can have running at any one point. The default is 5, so if you have 5 droplets running, you cannot make a 6th.

I have a droplet limit of 1. Why so?

it does not make sense that limit the droplet size. I’ve create a support ticket for increasing the limit but no response yet. This is very bad for customers.
