Server Pricing

DigitalOcean United States New York General Purpose Dedicated VPS Hosting Test and Review

DigitalOcean approaches the issue of pricing in a unique way. Instead of offering pre-made plans with features that scale up with the price, they offer so-called Droplets, where you choose the amount of memory you need, the number of vCPUs, transfer limits, and SSD Disk size.

They’re charged by the hour, starting at $0.007/hr, up to $5 per month, but go up into the thousands depending on specific needs. DigitalOcean accepts credit/debit cards and PayPal, but they do not offer refunds. However, they offer a 60-day $200 credit to new users.
