We have a small e-commerce website based on the Prestashop 1.6 platform. Our customers are mainly from the United States.

Which plan would you recommend to me for this case?

Hello, all

Choosing the right Droplet plan depends on your workload. An oversized Droplet would underuse its resources and cost more, but an undersized Droplet running at full CPU or memory would suffer from degraded performance or errors.

You can also resize a Droplet to a larger plan after creation, including resizing to a larger Droplet plan of a different kind. For example, you can resize from a Basic Droplet plan to a larger CPU-Optimized Droplet plan. See the Droplet pricing page for a full list of plans and prices.

You can always check our tutorial on Choosing the Right Droplet Plan

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex


For any database-driven application, I’d recommend starting with a 1GB Droplet at minimum. If you’re already established, have traffic, and a customer base, you may want to start with a 2GB Droplet.

It really depends on what you’re currently using in terms of resources and how well it’s performing.
