Initially @SuggeElson introduce DIGITALOCEAN in this thread, i will be glad if he share his ref code, if he isn’t digitalocean customer then i will be happy to use @tomislavn refferal code.

well @tomislavn, i want to know i will use digitalocean vps 1GB ram hosting for my video portal website. What do you think this hosting can handle the website load.

i will use ffmpeg for video conversion to mp4 format.

Hmm I think that video portal will mostly depend on traffic and bandwidth that it pulls from the server since I am quite sure hardware should be sufficient on 10$ plan.

Anyway, you can try it out with 10$ droplet then upgrade if that doesn’t cut it. You don’t have any contracts or immediate payments. It is billed by hour so you can use 10$ plan today, 20$ tomorrow and it will all get calculated by hours of usage not full 10$/20$ at once. You get complete billing statistics on your dashboard.

I don’t mind you using the referral code btw 8-)

What plans do people have with Digital Ocean? I’ve never seen their site before and honestly thought VPS was a bit over priced and unnecessary for my needs. Their prices are insane though, and making me consider it. Would probably go for the $10 plan, but how many websites do people run from each before they consider them over crowded?

You are only limited by the amount of traffic that those domains/websites are pushing at which point you may need to get a larger virtual server (droplet) to take the extra traffic.

For managing multiple sites you would need some control panel like cPanel (but you have to buy your own license) or if you are comfortable with console access, you can use nginx or apache for managing those domains.

Personally, I am using 3×512 droplets :) – they cost me around 15$ a month.
what is 3 and 15 droplet 3 means – websites 15 are applications you install in server?

Sorry, I meant I am using 3 droplets (VPS servers) with 512mb of memory (cheapest ones for 5$ per month). So it costs me 15$.

Each one of those can host numerous domains (limited only by bandwidth, storage and traffic, but you have to configure them yourself through panels / console.

Take a look to digitalocean vps :) start from 5$
Wow, truely cheap :P, did you use this vps, i didn’t found there features list, i am specially seeing cpanel/whm in it so i can easily maintain it.

I can tell you some stuff about Digitalocean “droplets” from my personal experience.

So, the process is like this:

You deposit some money and then you can create a “droplet” how they call their server blocks. Depending on your demands, you can choose a droplet with specific power, storage, bandwidth, etc.

Anyway, they got some apps that can be created on your VPS (a.k.a. droplet) automatically – including new Ghost blog, Ubuntu, Ruby, Wordpress, etc.

About pricing – you pay for your droplet / droplets on hourly basis. Let’s say you took the basic, cheapest one. It will withdraw 0.07$ from your deposited money each hour. If you have 5 “droplets” of basic power running, for maybe 5 apps, it will draw 5×0.07$ per hour.

If you want cPanel or Plesk cpanel on it, you will have to get a license for them since they don’t come free of charge. You don’t get panel license included for free on Digitalocean. If you want, you can buy your own license and then install it without any problems though, at least I have read that you can in their help files.

Personally I have installed virtulmin / webmin and it works okay. Even though, I prefer to do everything that I need over console access.

Adding custom domains, dns setup and other stuff like graphs, bandwidth usage, etc. works great also.

I would recommend them.

Hope I managed to clear few things for you :)

EDIT: Oh and yes, you pay for your droplets usage even if they are turned off / on standby, since they save your data on them in case you want to turn them on again.
