A simple walk-through in how we can host our WordPress site(s) in Digital Ocean (un-manage VPS) Cloud Server. Using Ubuntu and LAMP.
There’s a lot of WordPress hosting out there, and the price is affordable. But recently several developer friend at Theme Hybrid community shared that they move to Digital Ocean because of several reasons:
Better server (response time, ssd storage, bandwidth) than shared hosting
Dedicated IP for each droplet
Simple interface/easy to use (for a unmanaged vps)
Simple backup and we can create snapshot of our server
Easier to scale when we need
Amazing price, start at $5/month
Charged per hour usage, so we can easily create a test site (for clients) and destroy it when we no longer need it.
