DigitalOcean Referral Link

Good to Know

  • The free credit can also be used as discount to reduce the billing cost of any other (droplet) website hosting plan.
  • The offer is available for new registrations only.
  • You need to register a credit card for this to work! Optionally you can deposit $5 via PayPal if you don’t want to use a credit card.
  • If you want a three day trial without a credit card; you can register an account with Cloudways for a fully managed server with quick deployment.

DigitalOcean $10 Friend Sign Up Credit

Once you’ve clicked on the referral link provided — you should see the “Free Credit Active” notice notice while you browse the website.

Simply proceed to create an account and complete registration to secure your $10 credit “from a friend” (which is me in this case).

In case you cannot see the message; either

  • (a) try the referral link again
  • (b) clear browser cache and try again or
  • (c) use a whole different web browser to complete the sign up process.

DigitalOcean Droplet Pricing

The $10/month plan is the best plan that you can trial through the referral link for a whole month & the cloud server resource specs include:

  • 1GB memory
  • 1 Core processor
  • 30GB of SSD Storage
  • 2TB of Bandwidth

Note! To use DigitalOcean’s “WordPress one-click application” to host WordPress websites you will need a plan with at least 1GB of memory.

This is why the $5 plan with 512MB memory cannot be used for hosting WordPress in most cases. Although those who are able to use the cheapest plan can get an even better deal of a 2 month free trial of course.

Please Note

  • This promotion is part of DigitalOcean’s referral program — that gives $25 in account credit to the person providing the referral link.
  • I receive the account credit only if you continue to use the service and pay at least $25 for future hosting on your account.
  • The link cannot be used on yourself to get the $25 credit on top of the $10.
  • Huge thanks & cosmic hug if you choose to support me!

Monetary notice: As stated above; I will receive $25 in DigitalOcean account funds if you choose to register through the referral link, continue the service & use up at least $25 in  total of additional hosting payments (while giving you $10 for free).

So if you benefit from this I will also; and my deepest thanks for that!
