What are the differences between Vultr and DigitalOcean? I am moderately skilled in Linux but I am trying to move my work environment to the cloud. I tried VPS from DigitalOcean but not for the cloud and as I know then Digital Ocean seems less expensive. I want to run some small business websites and basically would like to learn everything about configuring servers online. Which one is better for a newbie on a small budget motivated to learn? Thanks in advance.

Neither are cloud providers - they're both just VPS with hourly billing.
My personal recommendation is Digital Ocean - as Vultr does not have RAID on any of its servers. I also find Digital Ocean has a better platform.

The thing is - are you capable of managing the VPS yourself? Do you truly need a VPS? These sorts of things come with requirements such as regularly updating the VPS - hardening it - keeping up with security flaws.
All these kinds of things are not needed on a reputable shared host (as the hoster usually does these things). If you're not comfortable doing it - you're better off going with shared. From what you described - shared hosting is what you need. VPS hosting is only necessary when you need root access, and when the websites have outgrown shared web hosting.

If we have to compare Digital Ocean and Vultr then they are equal performance wise. But Digital Ocean has a better user-base, help tutorials and guidance. For your satisfaction you can test both the platforms on the best managed cloud platform named Cloudways. You can use their birthday promo code: HBD2CW and get 1 month free hosting.
