  • It sounds like you are referring to a virtual machine running on your local computer rather than a droplet on DigitalOcean. With that in mind you should look into port forwarding on your router/modem.

  • ahmm sir thanks for the reply but not the local computer i'm reffering to another user like another people like anybody. xD sorry for my mistake. i've install php,mysql, when i search this question openvpn,vnc,vpn shows up. do i really need to install it?

  • or for alternate question how do i upload my server to www? xP do i need to pay for it?

  • Hey emzee07,

    Actually, you dont upload the entire Vbox data rather, yes if you choose to host if here, you create a similar specs (software) VPS and upload the user data of your local system here and go online with professional grade network and hardware..

    Refer to the DO home page for the package values..

    USD 5 is minimum per month for a 512MB RAM based VPS with 20GB SSD storage !!
