I need some real newbie help here, I originally assumed this service was a web hosting and was shocked when I got an email telling me to setup a linux server, by myself.
Anyway, I have some initial questions:
I currently use a shared host for 10 WP sites of mine and i’ve recently discovered that they are all locked at a 40MB WP Memory Limit each. Would this be better on DO? I don’t know how a linux server balances if I moved my 10 sites here. Basically, would there be any speed difference between this and a shared host?
How hard would it be to setup my server and move my sites here? I’d only really need to access FTP and WP Admin after installation, I don’t really go into the cpanel much anyway, other than to setup emails.
