AWS Customer Support Review By someone in this business for 17 years and owns 5 other accounts with Server providers
Aziz Baroody,

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 now dealing with AWS I cannot explain how many times they have gone beyond wha... More t 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

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 Ocea... More n has easy to follow documentation that shows you how to do this among many other things. Less

Це просто знущання ващі грощі

Дійсно працює добре так це списання грошей з карти, плюс хакери додатково списають на рахунок Амазону. Також треба питати сезоність відпусток техпідтримки!
terrible hosting!

I have used Digital Ocean for more than 2 years and I regret it.
I started over the recommendation of our freelancer, but in 2 years, I always had a hard time, from setting up, to managing, to backup, and performance, everyt... More hing was very hard and confusing for me. And whenever I had a problem and opened a ticket, I only received automated responses and never heard from a real person answering my messages! In the end, one of my sites was hacked because of Digital Ocean and they didn't even bother to respond to me for anything at all!
I finally pulled the plug and changed to another hosting provider which I am happy with!
So, in short, if you are not a genius with IT, stay away from Digital Ocean. Or if you use, pray that you will not have any problems and will need technical support, because if you do, support will be nowhere to be found!
Stay away at all costs! You will regret it!
