Your personal account on DigitalOcean lets you manage your team membership as well as your name, and sign-in method, email subscriptions.
Teams on DigitalOcean let you manage your infrastructure and billing. When you first sign up for DigitalOcean, you are the sole member and owner of a new team, where you can create resources like Droplets and start building. You can work by yourself, invite other members to join your team, and create new teams.
Account verification is automatic and happens usually within 30 days of opening and using your account. Under some circumstances, you may be asked to provide photo ID. After you become a verified user, you can manually charge your credit card by using the Pay now button on your billing page.
Once your account is verified, we will periodically increase your Droplet limit. You can also view your account or team’s Droplet limit and request an increase from your account settings page. After reviewing your request, we’ll be able to update your limit.
Users who sign up for DigitalOcean through the referral program now receive a $200 account credit, increased from $100.
To continue improving collaboration on DigitalOcean, we have begun incrementally converting existing customers’ personal accounts to team accounts.
To improve collaboration on our platform, a percentage of new signups on DigitalOcean will begin with a team account.
