    Digital Ocean is a great value for money hosting service provider. They have a very simple but really powerful control panel to offer. Scalability is an easy task with them. The servers are top notch, very fast. Your website will always have blazing fast speeds and will never be down! Also the price band is a very comfortable zone for most of us. The support is superb and reliable. I give them five stars!

    Digital Ocean hosting services are extremely good. I have an account with them and i swear they are better than most of the biggies out there. They provide you with everything you need in minimum time at minimum prices and that too of excellent quality and you get brilliant technical support services. Your website is never down, never. I feel that if they keep doing the good work that they are doing, it will be difficult to ignore them by anyone who is looking for good hosting!

    Digital Ocean is an average, budget hosting provider. They will give you quite a few cloud features with a decent tech support and good speeds. It fits your pocket with ease if you are having a very tight budget. They do have to work a lot on some areas but till then , i would mark them as good.

    If you are looking forward to setting up a simple and basic website I will strongly recommend Digital Ocean for you. I have had a five month experience with them for the similar kind of website and is has been a pleasant experience. The speed is good and the tech support is all right. They do need to mature a bit I can say to handle critical websites though. I am sure they will do so soon!

    Digital Ocean hosting service is beyond my expectations! I was assured by my friends that with Digital Ocean I won`t have any problems. But two years with them and I can say that i am absolutely happy. Great speeds and almost 100% uptime is what I am getting without burning a huge hole in my pocket. The technical support is just fine. The best part is that their servers are super fast, unbelievably fast. I can say that Digital Ocean is a good host for everybody!

    Digital Ocean hosting is doing just fine for me. It might not be technically a cloud host but they provide so many cloud features that you never miss out on cloud itself. There services are pretty good. The uptime, which I have monitored for a year now is an impeccable 100%. The speed is fantastic. And not a penny paid uselessly, absolutely worth it. The Digital Ocean is a good host and has a long way to go! Good luck and wishes to the team.

    Digital Ocean is simple, reliable and transparent. I really like it for these qualities that it stands for. I have been with them for six months and have had sufficient experience to say so. The features are good and all the other criterions like uptime and tech support are just fine. I feel it is the team that is so good and is doing real hard work. I would definitely recommend them!

Recommended Complaint

Click here to file a complaint
Complaint  ::  Digital Ocean is the worst hosting service I`ve ever used. My client had a guy who put their site on one of DO`s "droplets" and then he disappeared - now we are completely locked out because we can`t find the guy to communicate with Digital Ocean to "authorize" anyone else to gain FTP access. I`ve been emailing Digital Ocean for weeks, and sometimes their responses have been to email my own question back to me. I can`t wait for the contract to be up on Digital Ocean. I`ve had other clients where this has been an issue, those people give my job a bad name, but I`ve been able to work with those hosting companies. Not so with DO.--Eddie Haskell
