Pricing & Billing FAQ

  • How am I billed?
    Each droplet is billed per hour up to its monthly cap.

  • Do I have to pay the cost of the server every time I create a new one?
    No — you only need to pay for 1 hour of usage. Spinning up a new 512MB server just to test something for a couple of minutes will only cost you $0.007

  • Am I charged when I enter a credit card?
    No — when you enter a card, we only run an authorization charge of $1.23. This authorization is refunded back to your card by your bank in no more than 30 days. Your card is charged at the end of the billing cycle.


  • I have a credit, why am I still marked as suspended?
    In order to use the credit, users need to activate their accounts by adding a credit card to their account or prepaying through PayPal.

  • What do the positive and negative signs mean on the billing page?
    Users credits show up with a negative (ie. -$11.25) while the amount they owe to DigitalOcean shows up positive (eg. $5.00).


  • How do I cancel my account?
    You can cancel your account anytime through the control panel, under the settings tab.

  • Am I charged while my Droplet is in a powered-off state?
    Yes. Your diskspace, CPU, RAM, and IP address are all reserved while your Droplet is powered off. If you want to save a Droplet for future use take a snapshot of it and then destroy it. Youll be able to create a new Droplet from the snapshot image anytime to bring it back online.

  • How do I choose between monthly and hourly billing?

    There is no difference between monthly and hourly billing. All droplets are billed hourly, up until a monthly cap. We have estimated that each month has about 672 hours (28 days). If you use your server for less 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, which is no greater than 672 hours.

  • What form of payments do you accept?
    We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and PayPal.

  • Do you offer refunds?
    No, we do not offer refunds. If there are extenuating circumstances, please open up a ticket with us.

  • I submitted a PayPal payment. Why hasnt my balance been updated?
    Balances are not updated in real time. Once you submit your PayPal payment it gets processed and added to our system. You should see the updated balance in a few hours.

Referral Program

How do I get started?
Customers will be provided with a referral code link that can be utilized for endorsing our services while tracking referrals and commissions. The referral code link can be accessed from the Settings Page within the DigitalOcean control panel.

How will referrals be awarded?
Referrals will be awarded via account credit.

How do I earn the account credit?
Its simple! Anyone you refer to DigitalOcean that signs up using your unique referral link will receive $10 in hosting credit immediately after unlocking their account by adding a valid payment method. In return for helping us spread the word, we’ll give you $25 for each friend that signs up, once they are billed $25 as a DO customer. There is no limit to how many friends you can refer and credits you can earn :)

When do I receive my account credit?
You will receive your account credits after your referral completes $25 of billing. This typically occurs no later than the 15th of the month.

What is a pending referral?
A pending referral means that a user has signed up with your link, but has not yet met the spending threshold for the payout to occur.

 

Pricing & Billing

How am I billed?
Each droplet is billed per hour up to its monthly cap. You can choose to fund your account via PayPal or you can pay your monthly bill via credit card.

How do I choose between monthly and hourly billing?
Each Droplet is billed per hour up to its monthly cap. The monthly cost of your Droplet is calculated by running the hourly rate for 28 days (672 hours). Once you reach that amount (e.g. $10/mo for a 1GB VPS), you will not be charged for your servers additional runtime. This allows you to destroy your server before the maximum monthly charge and pay only for what you use.

Am I charged while my droplet is in a powered-off state?
Yes. Your diskspace, CPU, RAM, and IP address are all reserved while your droplet is powered off. If you want to save a droplet for future use take a snapshot of it and then destroy it. Youll be able to create a new droplet from the snapshot image anytime to bring it back online.

Do I have to pay the cost of the server every time I create a new one?
No you only need to pay for 1 hour of usage. Spinning up a new 512MB server just to test something for a couple of minutes will only cost you $0.007

What form of payments do you accept?
We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and PayPal.

Do you accept virtual, electron, debit or prepaid credit cards?
We apologize for the inconvenience, but because we receive a large amount of fraudulent sign-ups we’ve had to restrict the use of virtual/electron and debit cards in some geographies. We made this decision after finding that up to 80% of abusive sign-ups used these types of cards. If you would like to pay with one of these cards, we recommend using the card to send a payment via PayPal.

Am I charged when I enter a credit card?
No — when you enter a card, we only run an authorization charge of $1.23. This authorization is refunded back to your card by your bank in no more than 30 days. Your card is charged at the end of the monthly billing cycle.

When do you charge my credit card?
We charge your credit card on the 1st day of each month after usage.

Can you charge my card on a specific date?
We automatically attempt to charge your credit card on the 1st of each month. After you become a verified customer, you can go to the billing page and pay your outstanding balance at any time by clicking the “Pay now” button that appears underneath your balance.

Can I pay in advance?
We do not currently accept pre-payment, but you can add additional credit to your account at anytime by sending in a PayPal payment.

If I have multiple credit cards on file, which one do you charge?
Our billing system will attempt to charge your cards starting with the most recently added card. If there is a specific card youd like to use for payment, please make sure it is the most recently added card or delete any other cards from your account.

How am I charged if I have both PayPal and a credit card on file?
At the end of the month, if there is a balance on your account, our billing system will attempt to charge any credit cards that you have on file on the 1st of the month. If you’d like to use PayPal instead, please make sure your account has enough credit at all times to cover your monthly billings.

My credit card expired or was declined and the payment failed. How do I fix it to prevent my account from being suspended?
You can resolve this issue by adding a new credit card to your account, or by making a deposit via PayPal. As we do not allow credit cards to be edited, you will need to delete the old credit card and add a new one. Our billing system will also send you payment reminders before any actions such as service suspension are taken on your account.

How do I apply a promo code?
As a new customer you can easily apply a promo code to your account from the Payment Methods page here. Enter the case sensitive code in the promo code field. Once entered correctly, the credits will automatically apply to your account. In order to spin up your first droplet you must also have a valid credit card on your account or make a PayPal deposit. Keep in mind that we only allow one promo code per account, so if you’ve redeemed one in the past you may not add another. To see your promo code history please visit your billing page.

I have a credit, why can’t I create a droplet?
In order to use the credit you’ll need to activate your account by adding a valid credit card to your account or prepay via PayPal.

I submitted a PayPal payment. Why hasnt my balance been updated?
Balances are not updated in real time. Once you submit your PayPal payment it gets processed and added to our system. You should see the updated balance in a few hours.

Can I transfer credits from one account to another?
No - credits cannot be transferred between accounts.

Do you offer refunds?
No, we do not offer refunds. If there are extenuating circumstances, please open up a ticket with our support team.
