need information about services in Digital Ocean

Posted March 27, 2016 1.4k views

Hello, I am new here and I dont have idea about this. My web designer asked me to give him
address account FTP with login and password
and data base MySQL
Can I get everything with Digital Ocean or some of it should I look somewhere else?
Thank You for understanding.

  • If you are able to setup a FTP and MySQL service yourself and know how to add / remove users and other maintenance on your own, then DigitalOcean can fit your needs. I haven’t interacted much with the DigitalOcean Support, so I don’t know if they are a kind of “full service” support provider and would help you setup ftp accounts or mysql installation, configuration and access.

    You may wish to consider a managed hosting service, however, of another provider. It may cost more, but they may be able to provide that kind of “full service” support.

Hey there,

You may want to look at our phpmyadmin or LAMP One-clip apps deployments. You’ll have an out of the box web environment with MySQL pre-installed.

FTP itself would not be pre-installed and frankly, wouldn’t necessarily be recommended. FTP is a less secure method for transferring files. Without any additional configuration or installing additional software, your designer can use SFTP to securely upload files.

Happy coding,
