Droplet Bandwidth Overage (3156.77GB @ $0.01/GB)
Screenshot_9.png
This is a 2 droplets $5 per droplet and 10$ . I have 3 droplets and the usual amount together will be around 20$ sometimes 23$

is this possible this much Bandwidth Overage with 20$ droplet?
how I can reduce this Bandwidth Overage

Holy crap, that’s something new for me. Do you have a video site or something? Or perhaps you’re ddosed and you don’t know?

For example, if you have a 512mb video that was watched 6000 times (after your usual quota), this bill would make sense.

The solution depends on what your actual problem is.

The video is consuming your own hosting bandwidth instead of Google drive's bandwidth. You need to check why it's happening but you might have to keep paying the bills until you resolve it. If the video is not pirated or illegal one, you should upload it to youtube and embed it. You can even hire a developer to identify and fix the problem. 3TB is a lot of bandwidth and you have to pay similar bills for any quality hosting.

Something happened in the middle. Either you uploaded those videos to gdrive from you droplet, or they are getting proxied somehow through your droplet. Been using do for a very long time, never seen anything like this. They aren’t cheating you for sure.

I remember I uploaded 5 GB mp4 to the droplet to stream quickly cuz waiting for google drive to play takes time and removed after 5 days maybe when I saw the billing is increasing as usual. but if I removed why still increasing idk I'm too confused

I recommend you marketplace here or various freelancer sites. That would be the fastest way to get first candidates for the job fast.
