Billing

I looked at my current invoice, and I am being charged for droplets that are offline. Is this supposed to happen?
Thanks!

  • Yes, the resources are rented to you and are no longer available to other users(Electricity price is very small compared to ip, disk, ram and CPU power prices). I’d suggest snapshots if you would like to get billed less but then you’ll get a new ip each time you restore from a snapshot.

Ive restored from snapshots, but never saw the IP change?
