Hi there,

I believe that the Droplet that you’ve selected is quite good for a start.

I could suggest regularly checking the monitoring graphs via your DigitalOcean Control panel and see how the resources are being utilized. In case that you notice extensive CPU or RAM usage, this would be a good indication that you should add more resources.

Regards, Bobby
