Hi there,

I will try to cover all of your questions:

  • DigitalOcean offers only unmanaged servers.

  • DigitalOcean provides firewalls that you can attach to your servers. Regarding the malware scans, you could use Maldet for example.

  • You can use the 1-Click installation available on the Market place here:

  • As DigitalOcean offers only unmanaged servers, you will have root access to your server, and you will be able to configure it so that it matches your exact needs including disabling the PHP mail functionality.

  • You can enable backups for your server, this is supported by DigitalOcean. However, migrations are not a service provided by DigitalOcean.

  • For cPanel, I would suggest this 1-Click installation image here:

Note that the cPanel license is not included.

  • You can manually resize your Droplets whenever your traffic grows.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
