Secure and control the traffic to your applications with private networking, traffic filtering, and load balancing.
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.
Managed Let’s Encrypt certificates will begin using Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) instead of RSA. ECDSA is equally secure and more computationally efficient than RSA. ECDSA certificates follow the shorter root chain and aren’t rooted using the DST Root CA X3 cross-sign which expired on 30 September 2021.
As we roll out this change, new Let’s Encrypt certificates provisioned for DigitalOcean Load Balancers and Spaces will increasingly use ECDSA and existing certificiates secured with RSA will be secured with ECDSA upon auto-renewal. This change doesn’t require any action from DigitalOcean customers.
You can now resize load balancers once per minute, instead of once per hour. The cost is prorated based on how long the load balancer operates at each size, with a minimum charge of $0.01.
