DigitalOcean now has a pre-configured .NET Core w/ PowerShell on 16.04 one-click. This is essentially an Ubuntu 16.04 x64 droplet with the dot net core AND powershell pre-installed.

More documentation on .Net Core here and Powershell here.

  • This is good news! thanks for the update! I have been playing with this and am looking forward to how this pans out :)

@monty.exe: Linux

@DigitalOcean: Available images is prob. a good ? to add to the FAQs.
We do not support Windows servers however you can use Mono to host websites on Linux servers.

@Pablo: The OS list should be up on the FAQ page soon. Thanks :]
