Hi all,

I’m considering moving from my regular hosting company to DO. If I move 3 wordpress/processwire sites over to DO, which have a low number of visitors, what would the minimum requirements be? Will the $5 /mo suffice or wil I get into trouble speed wise with the 1G memory?

You could start off with the entry droplet and scale it up later if you find that it is not enough, If the disk size is not changed after scaling up, you can return the droplet to the lower size if your requirements drop again.
