Server Optimization Getting Started


I am going to launch a new site on Magento soon. I like the Digital Ocean as my hosting solution but the question is I am not a technical person. Can I launch, maintain and optimize hosting for the new site by myself using Digital Ocean or should I go with Cloud Ways which seem to offer more managed services and security updates?
Are they worth paying the extra money for what they offer?

Though DigitalOcean is unmanaged hosting, so there is definitely a certain level of technical required. Services like CloudWays definitely provide value. I'd love to hear from some of their users' experiences.

DigitalOcean's Magento One-Click application provides a quick start to building a Magento storefront on top of a LAMP stack. This tutorial will guide you through the steps to finish configuring your site, including setting your domain name and installing an SSL certificate.
