Custom Images Release Notes

Upcoming Changes

  • Starting 1 July 2022, some of our pricing is changing. These changes will go into effect for the July bill which customers wlil receive in the 1 August invoice.

    • We are introducing a new $4 Droplet with 512MB memory, 10GB SSD Disk, 1 vCPU and 500GB of outbound data transfer.

    • We are simplifying pricing for DigitalOcean Kubernetes and some Managed Databases for better accuracy and predictibility.

    • Droplets, Snapshots, Load Balancers, Floating IPs, and Custom Images are increasing in price.

    There is no change to pricing for Spaces, backups, volumes, DigitalOcean Container Registry, or App Platform. There are also no changes to inbound data transfer or bandwidth pricing.

    This is our first major price change in 10 years, and we believe the new model better fits our understanding of our customers and the expanded breadth of our offerings. For a more detailed breakdown of the changes, see our blog post on our new pricing.
