Accounts and Teams

There are two ways of working with DigitalOcean accounts: with individual accounts and with teams.

Your individual account allows you, as a single user, to manage your infrastructure and billing. From your account, you can also create teams. Teams allow groups to work together, providing full access for developers as well as a role for one or more dedicating billing contacts.

The Accounts section of this documentation covers detailed information about the control panel options for accounts and teams.

The profile page lets you edit information like your name and address, manage your login method, change your email preferences, and deactivate your account.
Deactivate an account after destroying all of its resources to close the account and delete its information from DigitalOcean.
If you enjoy DigitalOcean and want to share it with friends and colleagues, you can earn account credit by referring others with your unique referral link.
Manage your login method, two-factor authentication, and SSH keys. View the history of actions that have been taken in your account.
