Question

"Web Hosting" or "Web and Mobile App" ?

We have Laravel, Wordpress and Nextjs projects. Not sure which solution to choose “Web Hosting” or “Web and Mobile App”. Do we need separate Digital Ocean Subscriptions for each project or can we implement one laravel project and Nextjs project with server side rendering in one instance ?

Hello,

In case you are planning to use a Droplet, you could host both your Laravel and Nextjs projects on the same server.

For example, you could use this 1-Click installation for Laravel here:

https://marketplace.digitalocean.com/apps/laravel

And then install Nextjs on there later on.

With all Droplets, you would have root access so you will be able to make any necessary server-side configurations based on your needs.

Of course, if you decide to scale, later on, you could decouple your frontend and backend services and deploy them on different servers.

Regarding the Web and Mobile App vs Web App, I don’t think that this affects your actual servers, so you could select any of those.

Hope that this helps!

Best,

Bobby
