DO Ideas 2

Charge different cost when VPS is running than when it's off.

I wish i could have 10 machines available, but i don't want to be charged so much. Sometimes, i would need certain machine once a month, and i'm willing to pay 1-2$ just if it is there but since it would be off, it's just wasting money.

It would be ok if i get different IP or if i have to pay more to preserve IP.

    Hi, Unfortunately because the diskspace, IP, RAM, and all other resources are still reserved for your droplet we have to charge for a droplet that is off. If you would like to power off a droplet for an extended period of time, just power it off, then take a snapshot of it, and then destroy it. You can re-create that droplet from a snapshot in the future and the only change will be the IP address. Thanks, Moisey
