Just looking to host wordpress, DO a good choice?

Hello all,

I’m a long time Linux desktop user who has never set up a server or website before. I’m simply looking to host a wordpress blog on a nice and fast host with minimal effort on my part. It looks like there is an easy way to get wordpress up and running on DO. I see that DO is targeting developers, but for my application would DO be a good choice or would someone else like bluehost be easier?

Thanks, Adam

Hello, I have a question. I have a blog- it has 22000 views daily. Now, I want to transfer this to my own via taking a server. My website data is not more than 500MBs right now and in future till 1 year it would not go beyond 1GB. It basically has text based articles with a very few pictures and no video. My question is that:

1.Would VPS would be the best choice for this blog? 2.Need something economical. 3. My aim is to put ads on this blog.

Thanks, Imran

I really appreciate the reply. Great point about the maintenance, I hadn’t thought of that. As much as I would love to learn all about managing the server, I’ve got two kids 2 years old and under so my extra time for this kind of ‘fun stuff’ is minimal these days. Cheers.
