Using DigitalOcean for a web hosting company
I was looking into using DO servers for a WordPress hosting company.
I saw that there are multiple projects that integrate with DO that could automate the process of either spinning up new droplets, or setting up a new virtual container within a droplet.
I wanted to get a recommendation for the best suited projects/services to use in my use case:
- Someone purchases WordPress hosting from my website (doesn’t exist yet)
- Either a Droplet is created under my DO account, or a virtual container is created on one of the droplets under my account (either with Docker or Vagrant)
- The installation script is then ran to install LEMP, WordPress, set up the MySQL database etc.
- The new WordPress installation is available on an IP address - which can also be pointed at with a domain name, once the DNS configuration has been completed by the end-user
Ideally, I would like the droplet to be added to some sort of server monitoring service so I can get notifications of anything that goes wrong
Please let me know what the best route/combination is for my use case
