Like many I’m coming from the Shared Hosting world and I’m excited about the control that Trellis and Digital Ocean give me, but I keep bumping up against one question: how much server do I need?
The specs of a $5 DO server seem pretty comparable to, say, my Bluehost account, but my reading indicates that it’s not quite a 1-1 comparison, so I’m looking for real-life experience:
What is your biggest, most high traffic, most complex $5 DO droplet site? How much can $5 really push?
I get the feeling that most of my clients (small, local businesses) could get by with the resources a $5 server gives them, especially since they’re doing fine on shared hosting now, but maybe not? Help me out. What have you done for $5?
