Hosting HTML built sites

Hey guys, may be a very basic question but does digital ocean give me the ability to host a site that I have constructed of HTML5? I am new to this type of instance, and wanted to gain as much information as I could such as what would need to be installed, how I may go about it or even maybe some tutorials? Any additional information would be great!

Thank you,

You need to install a webserver on your VM. Here is tutorial: <br> <br> <br> <br>And in all fairness if it is just basic HTML website, you probably better of not using a VM, but rather a shared hosting, because using a VM requires a certain level of knowledge of Linux :)
