Kubernetes
Managed

DigitalOcean Kubernetes provides master server components for free. This includes compute and storage infrastructure and management for processes like etcd, kube-apiserver, kube-controller-manager, kube-scheduler, cloud-controller-manager, and other services for Kubernetes cluster management.

Customers are billed for the underlying resources used by their Kubernetes worker nodes, which could include Droplets, Block Storage, and Load Balancers. A Kubernetes cluster can be deployed for as little as $10 per month. Only public outgoing transfers are considered for bandwidth billing. Transfer limits are calculated by pooling the transfer from all droplets on the account. Overages above pooled transfer will be charged at a rate of $0.01/GB.

The monthly price advertised is the max amount per month, the actual cost will depend on the number of node hours consumed within the billing period.

Databases


Managed Databases

Combine the power of our core VM platform with a fully managed MySQL, Redis, and PostgreSQL database engine to give your application the performance it needs—without the operational overhead that comes with building and running your own database server. Learn more

worry free

Worry-free setup & maintenance

Launch a database cluster with just a few clicks and then access it via our simplified UI or an API. Never worry about maintenance operations or updates, we handle that for you.

highly scalable

Highly scalable

Scale up at anytime to support your business growth. Easily spin up read- only nodes to scale read operations.

worry free

Free daily backups

Your data is critical. That’s why we ensure it’s backed up automatically every day. Restore data to any point within the previous seven days.

worry free

Automated failover

In the event of a failure, Managed Databases will automatically switch data handling to a standby node to minimize downtime.

worry free

End-to-end security

Databases run in your account’s Private Network, which isolates communication at the account or team level. Requests via the public Internet can still reach your database, but only if you whitelist specific inbound sources. Data is also encrypted in transit and at rest.

worry free

Bandwidth

Ingress bandwidth is always free. Egress bandwidth fees will be waived until December 2020, and will be assessed at $0.01/GB per month thereafter.

Storage


Spaces Object Storage

Simple and scalable S3-compatible object storage with a built-in content delivery network (CDN) to store, serve, back up, and archive any amount of web content, images, media, and static files for your web apps. Learn more

Storage Outbound transfer (w/CDN) Additional GB stored Additional GB transferred (w/CDN) Price/mo
250 GB 1 TB $0.02/GB $0.01/GB $5 Create
Block Storage

Attach additional SSD-based Block Storage volumes to your Droplet to suit your database, file storage, application, service, mobile, and backup needs. Pricing starts at $0.10/GB per month. Learn more

Select storage size 200 GB for $20

0

16 TB

Backups

The pricing for backups is 20% of the cost of your virtual machine. So, for example, if you want to enable backups for a $5 per month Droplet, the cost of the backup will be $1 per month.

Snapshots

Snapshots are charged at a rate of $0.05/GB per month. Pricing is based on the size of the snapshot, not the size of the filesystem being saved.

There is no additional charge for making a snapshot available in multiple regions.

Tools


Load Balancers

Automatically distribute incoming traffic across your Droplets, enabling you to build more reliable, high-performance applications by creating redundancy. Load Balancers are billed hourly at $0.015 with no additional bandwidth charges. Available in all data center regions. Learn more

Floating IPs

Floating IPs are free to use as long as they are attached to a Droplet. Due to limited IPv4 availability, we charge $0.006 per hour for floating IPs that have been reserved but not assigned to a Droplet. Learn more

FAQs


What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, and PayPal. For additional payment options, including wire transfer, purchase orders, and ACH, please contact us.

How does hourly pricing work?

All Droplets are billed hourly up to a monthly cap of 672 hours (the number of hours in 4 weeks).

If you use your server for fewer than 672 hours during the month, you will be billed for each hour that you used it. If you use your server for more than 672 hours that month, you will be billed at the monthly cost.

We calculate Droplet pricing this way so that consistent month-to-month usage results in a consistent invoice.

Will taxes be included in my monthly invoice?

We’re required by law to collect taxes in some countries. You can visit our tax information documentation for details.

Am I charged when I enter my credit card?

No—when you enter a card we only verify the card. Your card is only charged at the end of the billing cycle.

Will I be billed for powered off Droplets/resources?

When you power off your Droplet, you are still billed for it. This is because your disk space, CPU, RAM, and IP address are all reserved, even while powered off. Therefore, charges are made until you destroy the instance.

How do you calculate costs in the pricing calculator?

Our pricing calculator uses 672 hours (hours in a 31-day month) to calculate the monthly cost for each provider. On-demand prices are shown.

Prices are drawn from the following data centers:

  • DigitalOcean: Prices consistent throughout all data centers
  • GCP: US East (Iowa)
  • AWS: US East (Ohio)
  • Azure: US East (no state specified)

The configurations we’ve used from other providers for this comparison are as follows:

  • AWS- t3.micro, t3.small, t3.medium, t3.large, t3.xlarge, t3.2xlarge, m5.4xlarge, m5.4xlarge, m5.12xlarge, m5.12xlarge, m5.12xlarge, c5.large, c5.xlarge, c5.2xlarge, c5.4xlarge, c5.9xlarge
  • GCP- f1-micro, g1-micro, n1-standard-4, n1-standard-8, n1-standard-16, n1-standard-32, n1-standard-64, n1-standard-96, n1-highcpu-4, n1-highcpu-8, n1-highcpu-16, n1-highcpu-32, n1-highcpu-64
  • Azure-B1S, B1MS, B2S, B2MS, B4MS, B8MS, A8m v2, A8m v2, D32 v3, D32 v3, F2s v2, F4s v2, F8s v2, F16s v2, F32s v2

The pricing calculator does not account for all available discounts. The pricing calculator does not include backups or snapshots, which incur an additional fee. DigitalOcean acknowledges that there is some variability and complexity in other providers’ pricing. If you wish to better understand the pricing for one of the providers included in our pricing calculator, we recommend you use the pricing calculators/lists from those providers.

The pricing calculator was last updated on February 13, 2019.
