Yes, it’s possible. It might slow down your site while it’s compiling though.

Is it possibe to compile softwares on my VPS using Ubuntu. Does it affect my site speed ?

Each droplet is on a shared 1Gbps port.

If I am using Internet in my VPS what would be my Download speed ?

Nginx is usually faster and takes up less resources than Apache so I’d recommend going with nginx.

I am planning to host a wordpress based website. Which is better Apache server or nginx server ?

1.How many websites can I host in my VPS? <br> <br>Theoretically you can host unlimited websites per VPS. <br> <br>> 2.What Operating System will be installed by default? <br> <br>You choose the OS you want to install, here’s a full list of the OSes we support: https://assets.digitalocean.com/oslist.png <br> <br>> 3.Does the 512 MB memory affect my site load time ? <br> <br>No. 512MB should handle several websites just fine depending on the webserver you install.

a 512 vps can easily handle thousands of visits per day <br>

  1. It all depends on what kind of websites you are planning to host and how many visits you have, tell us a little more <br>2. you can choose between Ubuntu, Debian, CentOs, Fedora & ArchLinux <br>3. No (Unless you are running low on memory and the server started to use swap, tell us a little more about what you want to do with the server)
