Question

Droplet Type for a Simple Video Streaming Service

Hi,

I’m currently building a simple theatre website where the audiences can login so they can watch a video (self-hosted video). Yup there will be only one video, that will be played once a day, for 3 days.

In a single day, the website will have 300-500 audiences per session to watch a video.

Any advice on which Droplet size/plan should be used for this? I saw a streaming droplet here https://www.digitalocean.com/solutions/streaming/, but somehow unable to locate it when choosing Droplet option in the dashboard.

I’m planning to build it using NextJS and MongoDB as the database.

Hello @ardiansyaherwin

Yes, it’s always challenging to find the right server to host your website. It completely depends on how much resources are required to run your website and incoming traffic. In general, we have a documentation link that will help you in choosing the right plan:
