DigitalOcean Review, Features and Price

6 145

After been slammed for high resources usage by some shared hosting company I decided to try something new, where I can manage all my sites. After few days of searching I found one powerful unmanaged relatively cheap virtual private server provided known as Digital Ocean.

Digital Ocean

Just with $5 you will be given a 512MB RAM server, 1TB bandwidth and 20GB storage space to manage your site, and a dedicated IP.  This is much better than shared hosting if you ask me. So I will be sharing with you this digital ocean review and other things you never knew about them.

Who are they?

DigitalOcean is an American virtual private server provider located in New York City with Data center in London, Amsterdam, Singapore, and San Francisco. Digital Ocean was formed in 2011 by Ben and Moisey Uretsky. Mitch Wainer joined the co-founding team in March of 2012, by then composed of the Uretsky brothers, Jeff Carr, and Alec Hartman, to lead the company’s marketing efforts.

In 2012, DigitalOcean was accepted into the TechStars accelerator program.

    Hi Kingsley,

    I’m a fan of Digital Ocean hosting. They Indeed offer best in-class web hosting at a very affordable price although I’ve also read some of the negative reviews about them in blogging community. What is your experience with them? Have you tried them on any of your website?
