I was using DigitalOCean VPS services from 4 years ago (web hosting) and never had issues. Servers here in DO are cheap and very reliable, never had a down time. But since some months ago we needed to host mail services, so now we manage mail servers in our Droplets.
Now, i can see reality about DO and their useless abuse team about spamming issues.
Start to use digitalocean services is really easy and fast, anyone can create an account and -10 min later have many 5 USD droplets working at same time, with gigabit speeds and not any restriction about networking outbound and inbound, so that’s why many bad intention users come to DO and use their IPs and resources in possibly illegal actions, and DO abuse team is doing nothing about this to control or almost to try to decrease level of abuse that many users do on their accounts.
Now i’m moving to Vultr (tried to move on UpCloud, but they restrict use of 25 port, and didn’t authorized me to open it up on my VPS), and i hope in a future, DO takes severe actions against spammers and abusers, and cares about safety on internet. Maybe i could return and open up my account again. Meanwhile, i leave.
