It is easy for me to build and mountain my website while I am using the plugin and writing the post via wordpress; however, more step-by-step teaching videos will let me more easily to use, thank you!
Very cool and fast servers

Honestly, I have been with them for months, great services and excellent prices, unlike any other provider, powerful servers, even for the most powerful sites
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 Ocea... More n has easy to follow documentation that shows you how to do this among many other things. Less

Questionable service and support

Service is friendly, but overall site support is definitely mixed - not sure if the long-term price is worth it.
I am concerned that I was not alert to a feature offering me SSL layer protection for my site, the absence of wh... More ich may have steered away potential clients. I only found out today, upon calling for a break in my site's functioning today, and inquiring about such protection, that it had been offered in my plan for a while but never turned on!
A real problem in communication with your customers. It was only due to the extremely helpful support person whom I contacted today that I satisfactorily resolved the two issues troubling my site.

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!

Winner: InterServer

Bruno Mirchevski Hosting Expert

InterServer, Digital Ocean, and BlueHost all offer quite similar hosting options to their customers, which is why so many people want to choose one of these three companies. While they all have a lot to offer, with good features, and fair prices, InterServer really stands out from the other two. First, InterServer is a privately-owned company based in New Jersey. They have been focused on quality hosting since their founding, which has led them to build custom datacenters, direct connections to the Internet backbone, and much more. InterServer really is one of the best hosting providers in the USA, so it is no surprise that we found them to be the winner of this comparison.
