I planned to deploy my project in digital ocean. Till now i’m using heroku for development. So we plan to move from heroku to digital ocean for that I have to select low cost plan. Can you please suggest any one plan for development. My project data is around 200Mb and we take five months to move the project to production.

Hello and welcome to DigitalOcean!

Smallest droplet you can get is $5, that comes with:

  • 1 CPU
  • 512 MB memory
  • 20 GB SSD Disk
  • 1 TB Transfer

I can recommend you $5 droplet. Without any details I’m not able to say what you will need but usually for development $5 droplet is good to go.

Learn more about pricing.
You can use DONEWS $10 Promo Code. It is usually given away for subscribing on [DO Newsletter]( It will be enough to run 5$ droplet for 2 months!
