Imagine two use cases.
Use case 1:
I started minimal droplet at $5 and ran it till mid of the month then I resized it to $80, used for 1 hour and turned it off.
So my total monthly bill is: $2.5 + $40.
Use case 2:
I started minimal droplet at $5 and ran it till mid of the month then I resized it to $80, used for 1 hour and turned it off. After turning off I immediately resized it to $5 again.
My total bill would be something very close to: $5
The only difference is one action taken from user side (additional resize).
Why DigitalOcean cannot offer user to do this action if let say server if off for couple days. It’s $40-$80 additional dollars but does it worth client?
