When exactly am I not billed for an unused droplet?

FAQ Billing

I’ve been reading the FAQ and this support forum but I have not yet reached a conclusion on this subject. I know that one will still be charged for a powered off droplet because some resources are still reserved for the droplet.

But just to be clear on this, say I have a droplet power on during the 28 day month life cycle, but I have not accessed the droplet, there has been zero bandwidth on this particular droplet during this month, will I still be charged the full amount of that droplet?

Hey there! To answer your question, yes. You would be billed for the entire 28 day cycle if you had a Droplet that was powered on and not being accessed. The same goes for if your Droplet was completely powered off.
