DigitalOcean United Kingdom London Basic Regular vCPU Virtual Machine Hosting Test and Review

We will be conducting a test on the DigitalOcean United Kingdom London Basic Regular Shared vCPU VPS Server, commonly referred to as Droplets. This virtual machine provides a mix of memory and compute resources, making it ideal for small projects requiring varying CPU performance levels, such as blogs, web apps, or dev/test environments.

The server has a DO-Regular Processor, two vCore CPUs, 4GB RAM, 80GB SSD Disk, 4TB Transfer, and 1 IPv4. Droplets are virtual machines that anyone can easily set up in mere seconds. They can be standalone or part of a larger, cloud-based infrastructure.

About DigitalOcean

DigitalOcean is a cloud hosting provider founded in 2012 and is now among the largest web hosting companies in the world. The company has offices in New York, Cambridge, Massachusetts, and Bangalore, India. Their data centers are all around the world for a total of 14: New York, Amsterdam, and San Francisco have three each, while Singapore, London, Frankfurt, Toronto, and Bangalore have one each.

DigitalOcean is a technical hosting provider geared towards advanced users, offering many customizable and combinable options. However, there’s no need to know all the jargon to use the provider – they have some beginner-friendly options. DigitalOcean approaches the issue of pricing in a unique way.

Instead of offering pre-made plans with features that scale up with the price, they offer so-called Droplets, where you choose the amount of memory you need, the number of vCPUs, transfer limits, and SSD Disk size. They’re charged by the hour.
