But i have a question about your service.
I have an android apk downloading site Currently it hosted on shared hosting. that get down on traffic spike.
That’s why i want to use digital ocean. But my downloading site consumed unlimited bandwidth Because Every user download apps from my site and each user consume on an average 50 MB.
Is your bandwidth transfer limit use for Download? Or Downloading and Uploading seperately count?
