This Month’s VPS Recommendation

I recently stumbled upon a VPS provider I had never used before – at the behest recommendation from one of my acquaintances, so I naturally made it my business to test their service.

As of today I have only been using their service for exactly ten days, but I’m already confident enough to give them my full endorsement!

So who are they? The company is DigtalOcean:



From what I can gather the company was founded in 2012, so it is quite young, but highly successful, having been featured in e-zines such as Forbes, TechCrunch, PandoDaily and in TheNextWeb.

They currently offer ten plans — the cheapest going for a meager five bucks a month (or $0.007 per hour). Services can be deployed in NY, Amsterdam and San Francisco.

You may deploy from the following Linux distributions:

  • Ubuntu
  • CentOS
  • Debian
  • Arch Linux
  • Fedora

As for support, I cannot really comment on it (yet), because I rarely need any. But as time goes on I’ll see if there is anything I can write on that subject. I can’t praise something I know nothing about, or have never been in need for via this company, now, can I? 

I can say this: I am truthfully very happy with their service so far and I will definitively use them for a couple of my projects — a pool of VPNs so far, and some nodejs stuff. This company is highly recommended by me.

So, a big thumbs up for DigitalOcean
