Question

Why is there a droplet limit?

Posted April 7, 2014 2.9k views
I joined and set up my server today. I see my account has a droplet limit of 5. Why is there a constraint? I.e. why would you limit how much money a customer may want to pay you? It seems a particularly low limit also.

Hello, all

If you want to increase your droplet limit you’ll need to follow these steps:

You can request a Droplet limit increase via your DigitalOcean Control panel. Then go to ‘Settings’ -> ‘Profile’ -> And hit the 'Increase’ button.

Once there, you’ll want to click the Increase link to open the form to increase your account’s current limit.if you’re having a limit of 25 the option to increase the limit to 50 should work instantly and the limit will be increased to 50 droplets.

If you require a higher limit, then fill out the form and after you’ve submitted the form, it will then be passed on to DigitalOcean’s support team for review.

Hope that this helps!
Regards,
