First off all DigitalOcean offers SSD cloud hosting, truly is not cloud, is like the original VPS hosting, but who cares then ssd disc performance is awesome. Digitalocean founded in 2013 and since then whey providing superb solutions for for geeks and webmasters. My first impression of DigitalOcean in year and half ago was that they were superb VPS provider that would be good for hosting some big projects. Well, after one and a half year i can say the same thing. From the Startup they managed to do awesome thing to manage through tough competition and created what they have now.
The best thing about DO is the price.
The pricing for Digital Ocean is cheap. Very cheap. Their servers start from just $5 per month, and for that you get 1TB of bandwidth, a single core CPU, 512MB of RAM, and 20GB of SSD storage. This is more than enough to host a plethora of low traffic websites. From there, the prices double, as do the server specs for every increment.
What’s more, if you want to spin up a Droplet to test something, you can. Digital Ocean will charge you by the hour up until the monthly rate is hit, then it will limit the fee for that month. So if you want a 512MB Droplet to test a new web app for 24 hours, this will cost you around 17 cents (around 12p). SEVENTEEN CENTS! That’s ridiculous.
DigitalOcean is clearly a great and cheap way to start your business online.
You should give DigitalOcean a try. I don’t think you will be disappointed. If you already use DO, or use a host that you think is better than DO, feel free to share your experience here below in comments.
