I have an existing hosting provider

I have an existing hosting provider. I am not so sure about comparing your service and hardware feature with the one that I have. Can I show you the specification that I am currently using, and you tell me what should I choose in Digital Ocean to replace the current service that I am using? My current application is running on Linux Apache MySQL and PHP.


What kind of service do you have hosted at a third party right now? You can ofcourse compare services with your own.

Hey there,

Thank you for reaching out to us!

It all depends on what you are comparing. For example if you are using a web hosting company that provides hosting based off something like cPanel or a dedicated server, it would be like comparing apples and oranges. We offer a scalable cloud platform where you can easily spin up a simple LAMP server, or you can create a larger scale configuration using high availability that scales with a few API calls.

You can certainly share the specs of what you have now. You’ll find our packages listed here.

Happy coding,

Jon Schwenn Platform Support Specialist DigitalOcean
