DigitalOcean India Bangalore General Purpose Dedicated Server Test and Review

This time, we’re checking out the top-notch DigitalOcean General Purpose Dedicated Server in Bangalore, India. This server boasts an Intel Xeon Platinum 8280 CPU, clocked at 2.70GHz, and comes equipped with 2 CPU cores, 8GB of RAM, 25GB of SSD storage, a fast 1 Gbps internet connection, 4TB of data allowance, and a single IPv4 address.

In our review, we’ve run many tests to see how good this server is. We’ve done standard benchmarks (Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark) to see how it performs under pressure. We’ve also checked its speed across different global locations with the Global Node Test and measured how long it takes to respond with the Global Ping Test.

For those interested in media, we’ve tested how well it can access content with The Media Unlock Test. We didn’t forget connection quality either; we are checking it out with the CloudFlare Internet Test. Plus, we’ve looked into how well web pages perform with tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix.

About DigitalOcean

Imagine you’re a developer or a small business owner. You need a reliable, scalable, affordable platform to host your web applications. That’s where DigitalOcean Droplets come into play.

DigitalOcean, a cloud infrastructure provider, offers Droplets, flexible Linux-based virtual machines (VMs). They serve as the building blocks for robust, scalable, and flexible web infrastructure.

Firstly, let’s talk about the creation of a Droplet. It’s a breeze! Select your desired operating system (OS), plan, and data center region. You can choose from various OS options, including Ubuntu, CentOS, Debian, Fedora, and FreeBSD.

Next, you decide on the size of your Droplet. DigitalOcean offers a range of plans to suit different needs. From basic plans, perfect for small projects, to more powerful CPU-optimized or memory-optimized plans, ideal for intensive tasks.

Once you’ve selected it, click the “Create Droplet” button. In less than a minute, your Droplet is up and running. It’s that simple!

Admin Control Panel

DigitalOcean India Bangalore General Purpose Dedicated Server Test and Review

First and foremost, the DigitalOcean Cloud Admin Control Panel is the command center for managing your DigitalOcean resources. Its user-friendly interface allows you to interact with your Droplets and other resources without using the command line.

Upon logging in, you’ll notice the dashboard. It’s a clean, intuitive interface provides a snapshot of your resources. You can see the status of your Droplets, monitor usage, and even track your monthly spending.

Now, let’s delve into the specifics. The control panel is divided into several sections. The “Servers” section is where you manage your Droplets. You can create, configure, and delete Droplets. You can also access the console, reboot, power cycle, or even rebuild your Droplets.

Next up is the “Networking” section. You can manage your domain names, DNS records, and IP addresses here. You can also set up load balancers and floating IPs for high availability and redundancy.

The “Storage” section is where you handle block storage and object storage. You can create and attach additional storage volumes to your Droplets. You can also manage your Spaces, which are S3-compatible object storage that allows you to store and serve large amounts of data.

The “API” section is for developers who want to automate their workflow. DigitalOcean provides a robust API that allows you to manage your resources programmatically. You can generate API tokens, manage OAuth applications, and access API documentation.

Lastly, the “Account” section manages your account settings. You can update your profile, change your password, and manage your billing information. You can also view your usage and billing history.

Payments

DigitalOcean offers a variety of payment methods to cater to the diverse needs of its users. They accept credit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, UnionPay, Diners Club, and JCB. Debit cards are also accepted.

In addition to cards, DigitalOcean supports third-party providers such as PayPal, Google Pay, and Apple Pay. These options provide flexibility and convenience for users worldwide.

Now, let’s talk about billing cycles. DigitalOcean operates on a monthly billing cycle. Your account balance accrues over the calendar month based on your resource usage. The balance is due on the first day of each month.

For new or unverified users, DigitalOcean has usage thresholds. If your account balance exceeds your usage threshold, your balance may be due immediately. However, DigitalOcean automatically removes usage thresholds once an account has a reliable history of payments.

You have two ways to pay for your resource usage. You can manually pay at any time during the month using any valid payment method. This allows you to pay for your month-to-date resource usage before it’s due, pay an overdue balance, or make a pre-payment.

When your balance is due, DigitalOcean first applies any pre-payments and then automatically charges the primary payment method on your account for the remaining balance.

Lastly, DigitalOcean supports ACH direct debit from U.S. banks for qualifying customers. This provides another convenient option for users to manage their payments.
