    I use DigitalOcean because of the simplicity of using their basic offerings, such as droplets. In AppAttack, we need low-level control of our infrastructure so we can rapidly deploy a custom training web application on-demand for each training session, and building a Kubernetes cluster on top of DigitalOcean droplets allowed us to do exactly that.

    Review ofDigitalOceanDigitalOcean

    I started using DigitalOcean back in January to host a Ghost blog. I was a little worried at first because I didn't have too much experience setting up servers. There was always the option of a full service company that does all the work for you, but the point was that I wanted more control for the purpose of learning. And, learning turned out to be really easy thanks to the great community at DigitalOcean. There are tutorials for just about anything. It has been an amazing learning experience, and now I'm looking forward to hosting more complex projects here. I already have a couple in the works for the near future. I highly recommend it.

    I can't rate the Support great or bad, as I haven't really had a need to contact them yet. But everything else has been excellent so far.

    Review ofDigitalOceanDigitalOcean

    I am a freelancer and a researcher. I have had tried a lot of hosting services over the years. But DIgitalOcean stands out from the rest for its pricing. Its just five dollar a month for a basic node.

    And the other reason for loving Digital Ocean is that they support Docker. It you buy a VPS machine, chances are that docker support wont be available as with PV or hypervisor, docker need some extra config.

    So far I am loving DO :-)

    Review ofDigitalOceanDigitalOcean

    I use DigitalOcean for testing or hosting my apps. You can set up an Ubuntu server in less than a minute. There are also one-click-install apps, so I don't have to install e.g. the LAMP stack myself. The dashboard has a really easy UI and is easy to use. The costs begin at 5 bucks per month. Also DigitalOcean has a great support and an adorable community. They have a great support page with hundreds of tutorials.

    DigitalOcean offers us everything we need to test out specific scenarios or we expect from small-servers like our monitoring-system. We also use digital-ocean in long-term and are very satisfied with their performance and scalability.

    Because I like having more control of my deployment, I am currently hosting this on DigitalOcean. I don't need to worry about arbitrary row limits and I can be sure that the app is always running.

    We use DigitalOcean to host our build tools (namely Drone.io) for a cheap CI and CD server.

    We'll be using this to host the server application during alpha phase.

    Been hosting with them for a while now. Never had an issue, great support, great docs: can't beat 'em. Though I'd probably move to AWS for large scale projects.

    DigitalOcean is the backbone for the whole stack. Without its cheap pricing and easy scalability this whole project wouldn't be possible.
