I have been using Digital Ocean, but I know basically nothing more than what I googled as far as setting up and maintaining a server. I have had one too many problems that I have no idea how to fix with their unmanaged hosting, and realize that I just need to find a new host.

So for someone who kinda needs a control panel (it can be free) and doesn’t know about web servers, can anyone recommend a hosting service that will be able to handle the traffic that themeforest would require when a new theme is on the front page? It would be nice if it wasn’t $50/month as well :P

I am using Digital Ocean, its easy to use and great support ever. Along with that you can also sign up for https://serverpilot.io/ which is admin panel for the vps (works only with digital ocean) and is great for php apps

Yesterday (9th July, 2014) we moved our hosting from host gator to InMotion hosting. Host gator share hosting plan is not enough for demo sites because they immediately block your website if CPU usage is more than 25% ( Host gator already did this with us in this week when our new theme was live on themeforest ). So we decided to move InMotion with VPS-1000 plan ( $30/month for first 12 months – http://www.inmotionhosting.com/vps-hosting ).

You can do live chat to discuss for more information – like visitors per day limit ( VPS-1000 plan has limit 10000 unique visitors per day ).
