  • Anytime you are running a web server and MySQL on the same droplet I would recommend going with at least the 1GB plan. That being said, there are many factors that should be taken into account when selecting a plan. A large factor should be the amount of load on the server you would expect, amount of traffic and the number of db queries that your most viewed pages will require.
