    I have been using DigitalOcean's VPS hosting for free since 1 year and here's the method of how I do it:

    Here are the steps:
    1. Create a new account on DigitalOcean (DO).
    2. Add $50 credit via PayPal and make sure to add $10 promo code ($10 free promo credit is always available for DO, just google it).
    3. Create a $5 VPS on it.
    4. Use the VPS for 2 months.
    5. In the last week of 2 months of usage, create a backup of your whole VPS.
    6. Then delete the VPS.
    7. Contact DO support and request them for a transfer of the remaining $50 (They usually do the transfer within 3 hours)
    8. Delete your account.
    9. After you received money back in your PayPal, create another new account and again add the promo and upload the backup on the server :D
    10. Keep doing this again and again till the time DO realizes this method and stop it :D

    Note: If DO support person asks why you want to get back the remaining $50 then say the reason that you are no more going to host any website or use any VPS in future. Never say you are moving to other server or didn't liked their service, else they will do anything to stop you :p

    I'm doing this since last 1 year regularly and did again today :)
    Hope this will help you too :)

    It's a loop hole not a scam. Choose your words wisely :)

    This is basically a douche method to scam a company out of their services. This is going to get patched soon because you brought it to our attention. Reporting this to MODS and making sure this shit doesn't happen to Digital Ocean, will be contacting their support now and screen capping this post of your process on scamming them and making sure they patch this.

    You are very late, I already contacted them 1 week ago. They said this isn't an issue or any vulnerability. Now I can't do anything if they themselves aren't ready to get this method fixed. Right pal?
