Managed DigitalOcean Server Cloud Hosting Solutions Support

Amongst unmanaged cloud VPS hosting services DigitalOcean is as easy as it gets but some may be put off by the learning curve, having to do things yourself.

Easy solutions for managed DigitalOcean cloud hosting; reviewed below.

DigitalOcean Managed Hosting

CloudWays

First stop CloudWays; easily the quickest and fully managed way to launch your website to DigitalOcean’s cloud. Sign up for a free account to deploy an instant server through their own easy to use cloud hosting platform.

When creating a server; choose from WordPress and a variety of content management systems or PHP Stack for all types of custom web applications.

Also Vultr, Google Cloud, Amazon AWS and Kyup cloud servers can be utilized through CloudWays with a feature to migrate your projects between each other.
