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.
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?
