Hello the digital-team and others :)

I ll buy servers on digitalocean.

I have some questions (usefull for other im sure) ^^ - Im currently developing my prestashop store. I need to choose 2 servers (Production and Development)

  • I hesitate between $20/mo or $40/mo. I really need 4GB ? Its probably better to get 2 same configurations.

  • I ll install web server and other stuff by myself : Nginx or Apache+Nginx ?

  • I should install Cpanel like in free of course : Foxlor or ISPConfig ?

Thanks :)

Regarding the control panel setup, do give zPanel / Sentora a try… Those who is moving from cPanel based setup may find the panel easy to migrate to !!

Thanks for your advices :)

It’s a pitty ServerPilot doesn’t manage LEMP stack. But I didn’t know and seem’s to be a goood service :)

So I ll order the 20$ plan, install Lemp, Nginx, Fail2Ban… =) And probably install Foxlor :)

And also try cloudfare :)

Cheers

@mepps27 I fully recommend you Nginx without apache, is faster, powerful, and a complete solution by its own.

Go to serverpilot.io and create a free account, it helps you to install LEMP completely optimized (out of the box) and provides your with an easy to use control panel for your site/s.

About the size, start with the small one, and try it, if you feel like you need more power/speed with current users then upgrade.
