Hello @sandylapisdinghy

A Basic droplet with 2 GiB RAM and 2 vCPUs should be sufficient. You can always upgrade it if this is needed.

You can check the basic droplet options here:

Also with our pricing calculator, you can spec the droplet to your exact needs and the calculator will generate the exact monthly costs for the droplet.

Hi @sandylapisdinghy,

You have everything you need. You know your specs and I’ll recommend going for the Standart Droplet select one with the 2GM RAM and 2 Cores and built your App on it.

The good thing is you can always update once you feel you need more power.
