Projects Overview

Plans and Pricing

Projects are available at no cost.

Regional Availability

Projects are available for resources in all regions. Projects are not region-specific, so resources from multiple regions can belong to the same project.

Features

Every account starts with a default project, and existing customers will find their existing resources already organized into this default project. You can edit a project’s name, purpose, and description after its creation.

You can move resources into new projects in bulk when the project is created or afterward. You can also move them one at a time out of one project into a different one.

Supported Resources

Supported resources form the foundation of a project. These include:

  • Droplets
  • Spaces
  • Load Balancers
  • Domains

All supported resources must belong to a project, and you can directly assign them to one. If you create a supported resources without a project specified, it will be added to the default project.

Related resources are related to projects via the Droplet they’re associated with. These include:

  • Attached block storage volumes
  • Backups
  • Snapshots
  • Floating IPs

You can access these resources from within a project through the Droplet-specific menu or, in the case of floating IPs, directly from the project dashboard.

Independent Resources

Independent resources do not interact with projects. These include:

  • Unattached block storage volumes
  • Tags
  • Firewall rules
  • Alert policies

Limits

  • Projects are only available for the Control Panel. API support is scheduled for 2018.

  • You cannot assign unattached volumes to a project. Volumes support is scheduled for 2018.

  • You cannot delete the default project without setting another project as the default first.

  • There is currently no limit on the number of projects per account, but reasonable limits may be put in place in the future to facilitate usability.
