Digital Ocean Reviews

Digital Ocean I built and hosted my first website in 1999 and I can honestly say Digital Ocean are perhaps one of the best web hosting companies I have come across. Ok, I say web hosting and they aren't a traditional web hosting company like Hostgator or Hostnine because they specialise in something called VPS.

VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. VPS is basically your own cloud server that no one else can use. That's right you get exclusive use of your VPS to do what you like with it.

VPS is extremely powerful and secure. It has been traditionally used for years by people that write software for a living, companies that have their own IT Departments or individuals that are willing to invest a significant amount of time setting it up.

Digital Ocean have made it simple to setup a WordPress site. This site is running on Digital Ocean VPS and it took me less than five minutes from ordering the VPS to having WordPress running on it.

I used to use shared web hosting in the past for my WordPress sites as it was significantly easier and cheaper. Not anymore. VPS is the way forward for all my sites as it is now the same price as shared hosting, far more secure and just as simple to setup.

All the reasons I have mentioned so far are a good enough reasons to host your WordPress site on VPS. However Digital Ocean only use SSD disks. SSD disks are the fastest in the industry. This means that your VPS server will run like lightening.

Finally if your WordPress site becomes popular in a shared hosting environment your web hosting company will ask you to move it to another one of their servers, as you are hogging all the resources. They may even take your site offline.

Moving a WordPress site is relatively straightforward, I have done it on several occasions. However, it's a pain. Especially when your site has to be moved at a time when you are busy doing other stuff.

Digital Ocean on the other hand will never do this because your site is hosted on your own VPS. Noone else is using it.

When your site becomes popular the only thing that will happen is that it will become slow. You will want to throw more grunt at it because you want your site visitors to have a better experience. Fundamentally it's your choice to upgrade not the web hosting company enforcing it.

To upgrade a VPS is several clicks of a mouse and all of a sudden you have more RAM and processing power to serve your needs.

Digital Ocean have made VPS sensibly priced, powerful, easy to use, and secure. So much so I will be moving all my sites to Digital Ocean VPS.

You can give them a try for two months for FREE. Signup through our site and you get a $10 credit and can cancel at anytime without any charges.
