Question

when my free trial period ends?

I wanted to know if I can keep my virtual machine currently in use at the end of the free trial, I would have to pay a monthly fee of 5 dollars a month, right? but what I mean if the information of my virtual machine is not lost and I can restore it by paying the 5 dollars a month without losing the current one. Is this possible?

Hello, @djsalgado020

60 days after the credit was added, any remaining credit will be zeroed out. If you continue to use our paid services after the 60 days your credit card will be charged at the beginning of the following month.

If you want to continue using our services you can make sure that you’ve added a valid Payment method (credit or debit card or you’ve added funds using PayPal). You can also create a snapshot of your droplet in order to have a working copy of your virtual machine. You can also backup the data on the server as well and have this saved locally.

Hope this helps!

Regards, Alex
