Hello,

Does anyone here have experiences using Digital Ocean recently?
I am hesitant to transfer over until I know its not a jungle of coding-needs on the backend to make everything work smoothly.

Is the UI code-free nowadays?
Is it simple to make a site transfer from one host to DigitalOcean (WordPress)?

I've heard good things about speed from these droplets, but I need more info before trying.

Thank you very much!

Of course it is simple to transfer a site that you are using on a host to your hosting at DO.

But you need to give us extra info like which control panel are you using? do you use SSH to move files or which tools are you going to use to move files and databases from old host to new host on DO?

From my experience, its loading speed is average if you use 1 or 2 vCores for your droplets

I would recommend some VPS hosting comapnies on this forum

Go with smaller VPS hosting companies you can have better support.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Regards,
Mark

Moving a website from other web hosting to Digital Ocean can be easy or can be hard, depends on the situation you are in now.

You don't tell us much about it.

So what exactly you need to know?

Before transferring from a web hosting with cPanel or other control panels to DO, you need to install OS in the DO, install the web server, FTP server and some other things.

DO isn't a managed service. You need to do all by yourself.
