Hello hi! im new to digitalocean and im enjoying the simplicity.
now im using 4bg ram with 80ssd which is 20$/monthly. but im still using credits.

but im wondering that WITHIN 2 WEEKS MY CREDITS HAS BEEN DROPED FROM 200$--> 90$. im afraid that when i will start to be charged the real price it will be high.

and actually now im in developing stages of my websites.

i launched like 4 droplets to tests things but i destroyed all 3 and left with only 1 which im now using. and also i have only 1 snapshot which is below 2gb. all these things has happned within 2 weeks. but why these costs on my credits come down faster?

i need your fast help please cause i need to launch my website now but im fearing that i cant handle these costs which goes 100$/14days for 4gbram and 8gb ssd.

thanks for fast help!

Hey friend!

I had a look and I'm not quite seeing it the same way that you describe. For your privacy/security I'd rather not go into more detail here. Could you email jdonnell@digitalocean.com from the email address on your account? I'll reply back and explain to you what I see from my side.
