I've been testing a droplet for the last few days and I'm very satisfied with the service. However, DigitalOcean defines itself as "a simple and fast cloud hosting provider built for developers", so I'm wondering if this is the right choice for long term website hosting. It seems that it's a service were people can create a virtual machine for a few days or months, but it's suitable for long term usage?
Another doubt is the price. As the price is charged by the number of hours, how can I be sure that you'll not raise the prices without notice. For instance, in a normal hosting service, I can pay in advance for 1 or 2 years, and guarantee that I'll have the same price for that among of time.
