Being tired of slow shared hosting, I did some research on alternative webhosting methods and stumpled upon DigitalOcean while looking for a VPS powered Wordpress host. There are several providers ofc, but I was attracted to the 1-click install packages that DigitalOcean has to offer.
When it comes to Linux, and even on running a server, I am a total noob. However, I do have some IT knowledge to get myself started. So not your average quitter, will search and search and try and try till I get it working. However, I dunno if I can use that right now. Anyways, to get to the actual question:
I want to run a WooCommerce (Wordpress) website. What is the best option to go for? I value high speed, as that was one of my main problems with previous methods. I understand nginx would run faster as opposed to apache? Also, although I understand that it is not recommended, what are your thoughts on running a mailserver on your own server, and in my case next to the Woo website?
Long story short, should i got for the 1-click Wordpress, or should I choose one of the other stacks, LAMP, etc for my needs?
Thanks in advance
