    Very simple to get setup and running for developers


    Nothing that puts me off

    I have been using DigitalOcean since they first launched, I love it so much I made a product to help you back up your Droplets and Volumes.

    Its a super simple and cheap way to get a server and can scale to what ever you need. There are great tools out there that integrate straight in, due to there great API.

    Highly recommended product!

    They couldn't make it any easier for how difficult I thought it would be to launch my first site

I continue to hear good things about Digital Ocean. I watched an interview with its co-founder, @MitchWainer, and @Jason on This Week in Startups last week.

I just switched over to them, much cheaper, lots of control, loving it. I'm also a complete server noob, and their tutorials are amazing and quite helpful.

I really really love Digital Ocean. I used it last week to set up a forum that I am going to run for the early drone community. It was incredibly simple, I had the entire thing up and running within 30 minutes on a Friday night. Haven't seen something this simple since Heroku.
