For 10 years, DigitalOcean has expanded and evolved to deliver a better cloud computing experience for builders all over the world. We’ve invested in new products and infrastructure that make building and scaling world-changing apps simpler than ever, and have new products like our recently announced serverless offering.
Today, DigitalOcean is proud to serve both teams of developers looking to build their next application and growing businesses that serve customers across the globe. We’ve come a long way, and we’re just getting started. That’s why today we are announcing that for the first time we’re changing our prices to best serve you at every stage of your growth journey.
On July 1, 2022, customers using Droplets, Snapshots, Load Balancers, Floating IPs, and Custom Images will experience a change in prices. We’ll continue to offer affordable inbound data transfer and industry-leading bandwidth pricing which will remain unchanged. We are also updating the pricing of certain Managed Database products and DigitalOcean Managed Kubernetes to bring simplification and better price predictability to these products.
New prices will be reflected in your July bill, which you will receive on August 1, 2022. We are also making some changes to how we bill for Managed Kubernetes to increase simplicity and price predictability.
Customers use DigitalOcean for use cases ranging from hosting mission-critical applications to testing new ideas. To empower even more developers across the globe, we are introducing a new Droplet priced at $4/month with 1 vCPU, 512MB memory, 500GB bandwidth, and a 10GB SSD.
The new Droplet is ideally suited for developers and teams learning new skills and creating proofs of concept and serves as a low-cost, effective graduation path from application development to production deployment. This Droplet will be available starting July 1, 2022.
Customers looking for cost-effective hosting for static sites also have access to the Starter tier of App Platform. With the Starter tier, you can build and deploy 3 static sites for free, with each additional site costing just $3/month.
