Switching from a Shared Hosting Service to a Droplet
I've been reading a lot about the digital ocean, and well, I currently have a shared hosting with another company, and I feel unsatisfied with it because I only have outdated packages, and makes me hard, try and develop stuff to show, or host, there.
But I'm not sure, what kind of droplet will be able to handle this kind of load, a part of me says that a basic one of 1Gb of ram and 25Gb of storage is enough because I compare it with my current hosting specs.
I haven't checked the tutorials, but Is there a way to manage In a cPanel like way?
What I'm worried is to have to manually install everything, to do the configs, I mean, I can do it, but this would be my first time doing all this bootstrapping for the server.
Any Suggestion? which documentation should I read?, or what plan should I get?
Is it worth moving from a shared hosting to host my applications?
Keep In mind, the switch Is in order to assist my project developments, and also host my sites (that are only 2, probably 3 in a near future)
