I’ve been developing on quite a few Linux servers in recent days and roughly a year ago we came across hosting provided by Digital Ocean. An up and coming hosting company that has now opened it’s third data center (Singapore) to go along with New York and San Francisco. I’ve really enjoyed the environment and control panel they offer. I wish they included some type of Email offering, at the moment you would have to build it into the server.
Their hosting plans start as cheap as $5 a month but the popular option is $10 a month. 1GB of dedicated ram, 30gb of storage and 2 TB of disk transfer.
I started with Digital Ocean in June of 2013 and since then they have almost added a million new sites.
If your looking to set a server up go ahead and use my ProjectET referral code for Digital Ocean!
