Just transferred this site to a Digital Ocean “droplet” which is what DO calls a VPS.
The instance is being hosted in Singapore.
Things I like at the moment:
- Fast provisioning
- ping times to the DO Singapore datacenter are quicker than to Rackspaces ORD data center (hence response from Australia will probably be better)
- Easy to use control console the DNS Manager is well good
- Price for 2GB ram with 2cpus is less that the 1GB 1cpu Rackspace offering
Things that I don’t like as much.
- The overall polish of the service doesn’t seem as solid as Rackspace’s offering, but time will tell.
- No mailgun service
