Why am I billed for powered off Droplets?When you power off your Droplet, you are still billed for it. This is because your disk space, CPU, RAM, and IP address are all reserved, even while powered off. Therefore, charges are made until you destroy the instance.
You terminated your instances, but you still have EC2 resources provisioned to your account The Elastic Compute Cloud line item in your bill includes resources other than instances. EC2 instances are often used along with other EC2 resources, such as the following:
Elastic IP addresses
Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) volumes
From https://www.digitalocean.com/pricing - FAQ Section.
Having said that, I will use this idea, to setup my kids with remote dev on their chromebooks, with VMs running on my home NAS device. 😀 ( Then hit them with unexpected bills 😈)
I read it the same as DO's - they charge you as long as you consume resources, even if VM is shutdown. I don't use AWS, so not entirely sure.
since that I came across gitpod.io, to my opinion a much better approach to a remote development environment. I highly recommend checking it out
