Great Service
Digital Ocean is a highly customisable cloud hosting service with reasonable rates. The only drawback for non-technical customers is you will need to ...
configure your server VIA the command-line – the good thing is Digital Ocean has easy to follow documentation that shows you how to do this among many other things.

AWS Customer Support Review By someone in this business for 17 years and owns 5 other accounts with Server providers
If anyone ever wants to know the truth and facts about AWS Customer Supports Vs GoDaddy, Hostway, Hosting Source, Google, Apple READ THIS: 7 years no...
w dealing with AWS I cannot explain how many times they have gone beyond what their rules and Regs and policies are to HELP, SUPPORT and maintain whatever it takes for AWS to serve and keep us as a client. They are the NUMBER 1 Company and they already WON Best Customer Support globally as far as I am concerned

Muito boa empresa de hospedagem.
Só não é 5 estrelas porque os preços são bem altos, mas é uma empresa TOP para hospedagem de sites. Eu recomendo para quem tem sites e está em cresci...
mento, ou já é consolidado com alto tráfego. Os servidor é rápido, os recursos são extremamente eficazes. Tem serviços de DNS gratuitos e um dos melhores do mundo. Você só precisa ter conhecimento para instalar seus softwares e administrar seu servidor, porque eles cobram um absurdo para gerenciar. Por outro lado, se você pode gerenciar seu servidor, A Linode "agora AKAMAI" é uma das melhores opções.

DigitalOcean is a scam

ity reasons. One hour later, I received an email from DigitalOcean saying that they would charge $15 from my bank account. They did when I never subscribed, and I didn't even know about the existence of this company. As a result, I had to cancel my debit card and present a formal complaint to my bank to avoid future scams and money refunds. Don't trust DigitalOcean, they are a scam. Now I realized that I am not the only one who experienced this with them.

Arnaque, passez votre chemin!
J’ai essayé leur offre mangoDB soit disant gratuite que j’ai annulé dans les minutes qui ont suivies car cela ne me convenait pas. Résultat: 600 $ de ...
frais estimés, heureusement je m’en suis aperçu rapidement, j’ai appelé ma banque pour annuler le paiement et la domiciliation. J’ai dû clôturer ma carte de banque et en demander une nouvelle. Je vous conseille de fuir leurs services, d’acheter votre propre mini serveur et de le faire vous même.
