wtools.io is happy to announce that our considerable and demanding website infrastructure is now hosted by DigitalOcean.
DigitalOcean specializes in cloud hosting for developers. They provide a scalable infrastructure for developers to build websites and applications with fast deployment times.
Developers can use DigitalOcean to create virtual servers, or "droplets," in under a minute. With each droplet, you get full root access, including the ability to customize your server setup and choose your operating system.
DigitalOcean promises 99.99% uptime and offers to issue a credit for any downtime beyond that. While they don't provide details on the process, several users have noted in the DigitalOcean Community that they received fair compensation for downtime.
If you need simple web hosting without having to worry about the technical details, then DigitalOcean is not for you.
DigitalOcean should be considered as an option for developers with a need for flexibility and detailed control over configuring their servers. Due to the style of support DigitalOcean provides, it's best suited to self-sufficient developers who enjoy researching their own answers rather than having them handed to you. It is ideal for experimentation on a budget since your use of each virtual server is billed by the hour.
