Which server really depends on how much traffic you’re getting and how much you can spend.

Since you’re a marketing guy, you’ll want to roll with the WordPress image, as opposed to a plain Debian or Ubuntu image. It’ll give you a ready-to-use WordPress installation.

You can always increase your droplet size later on. If I were in your position, I’d probably start with the 1GB droplet for $10/month. However, if you’re getting hundreds of thousands of visits per month, you may want to opt for a droplet with more resources.

Great I did the migration and successful.

One new problem. My emails are hosted with godaddy. Now My emails have stopped working. How to solve this?
