Digital Ocean and Gamocosm Setup

Gamocosm doesn't charge you for hosting servers (it only manages your servers, and it's free). Your servers are hosted on Digital Ocean, a cloud hosting service. You will be charged by Digital Ocean for hosting your servers. Gamocosm requires API access to do stuff such as setting up a new server, or backing up and stopping servers. To learn more, see the About page.
