Is digital ocean the same as shared hosting?

I have a site that use TYPO3 FLOW PHP framework. The shared hosting for flow is expensive and I don’t get root access so I was wondering if I could do everything with DO that I do with my current hosts, or is DO just something for people testing something quickly?

I’m currently using this host as they are well known for TYPO3 hosting in germany but they are expensive I find - the service is great. I’m guessing all the extra stuff like backups and technical support don’t come with DO? or do they?

Thanks for any help.

PS: This is my hosting package with my current hosts.

xxl package.

Technical support is available for the droplet itself but obviously not what’s in it.
