Question

Can my app run more effectively (Cheaply?)

I am playing around with DigitalOcean to create a little project, it basically is a checker for Webflow websites.

I got help from a friend setting up a server for this. I have not managed to get sufficient traction for me to see a lot of potential, however, I notice that my costs are kind of high for me to grasp.

Attached are images of my usage and my setup config.

Hopefully you can advise me if I can lower some specs and still have the app usable.

2 GB Memory / 60 GB Disk / FRA1 - Ubuntu 20.04 (LTS) x64

Thanks a bunch

Hi there,

As your resource utilization is quite low, you could create a new smaller server and move your website to the smaller server.

After the migration is complete, you could shutdown your old server and delete it.

Afterward, if you ever need more resources, you will be able to easily upgrade at any time:

Hope that this helps!
