What is the difference between Shut down and "Power → Stop"?

If the operating system of the virtual machine is shut down, the VM on the ProfitBricks data center side is bound to the hardware resources. This means that they will be charged. To avoid this, the VM must be turned off via "Inspector → Power → Stop". Previously unused RAM and Cores of the VM incur no further charges. Please note that all occupied storage will continue to be billed.
