Digital ocean review | pricing | alternatives | coupon 100$
digital ocean DO alternatives
vultr the best & close alternative but same price & same droplets configuration. you should check both based your virtual machine requirements i.e RAM, SSD, cpu cores.
Linode offers quite lower prices
google cloud & AWS &azure you can decide, cpu cores, ram, and storage bandwidth billed after calculation end of the month.
ex. In GCP bandwidth 0.07$/GB.1GBstorage/1$
1GBRAM/$1* 1CPU core /10$
bandwidth billed sperately $10avg. Based on hits.
digital ocean coupon or Free trial
Digital ocean $100 coupon with 60days validity.
you can try digital ocean for free 2 months, it will be activated once you added the payment details.
credit card, paypal, debit card too. don’t worry about credit card you can use paypal (add money from bank account) or debit card directly.
Resizing droplet in digital Ocean?
you cannot resize disk size, so the downgrade not recommended by digital ocean. but upgrade to next high resources droplet with one click.
even if downgraded ram or cpu the billing accounts per droplet size basis as on date. so there is no cusrtomized billing in DO.
the digital ocean droplet monitoring within console?
digital oceans’s admin console very usefull to know, resources usage cpu usage in past 24 hours, hours etc.
also you can try monitoring services like New relic, datadog, absolutely free like monits, nagios seems to be out of date. nginx server status module, php fpm status etc. Linux network commands also useful.
try top,htop command
then measure ram & cpu usage.
cpu usage 0. 0.1 0.11
means 1,5,15 minutes cpu usage.
1= 100% cpu usage.
in dual core it’s 40% usage..
Idle ram should be atleast 30%.
Digital ocean pricing & datacenters location
starts $5/m billed hourly once you destroy no billing.
$10- 1cpu 2Gb ram 10GB SSD
20$ 2CPU 4GB Ram 8GB ssb 4tb bandwidth
High memory optimized
in cms like wordpress high memory needed to cache files in memory to serve requests faster.
ex: MySQL buffer pool, redis, php-fpm pool, fastcgi cache, nginx workers.
linux caches files in memory if any available memory there.
why digital ocean best for pricing & performance at entry level.
the google & AWS, azure
Nit provides virtual cores,(cpu thread or half cpu shared by another) .
dedicated core without virtualizartion (you may check in linux server by ls cpu or other commands)
the pricing & datacenters location , wide range of community support , articles attracts new customers.
I don’t see any negative reviews 😣.
are you worrying about high prices at VPS & limited shared hosting, hire me to manage your cloud sever.
