There are two ways of working with DigitalOcean accounts: with individual accounts and with teams.

  • Individual accounts. Your individual account allows you, as a single user, to manage your infrastructure and billing.

  • Teams. Teams allow groups to work together, providing full access for developers as well as a role for one or more dedicating billing contacts. You can create teams from your individual account.

Account Management

Your profile page lets you edit information like your name and address, manage your login method, change your email preferences, and deactivate your account.

Account Information


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.

Droplet and Volume Limit Increases

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.

Before your account is verified, you can create volumes up to 500 GB in size. After your account is verified, you can create volumes of any available size.
