Hello, all

Choosing the right Droplet plan depends on your workload. An oversized Droplet would underuse its resources and cost more, but an undersized Droplet running at full CPU or memory would suffer from degraded performance or errors.

You can also resize a Droplet to a larger plan after creation, including resizing to a larger Droplet plan of a different kind. For example, you can resize from a Basic Droplet plan to a larger CPU-Optimized Droplet plan. See the Droplet pricing page for a full list of plans and prices.

You can always check our tutorial on Choosing the Right Droplet Plan

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex

Honestly, i dont really know about hosting, but if or anyone you know having laundry business or want to start one…here is an ultimate guide to start.

A WordPress installation on a 512MB droplet can handle millions of hits, if properly set up, e.g. with Nginx (instead of Apache); caching; and a CDN for static content.
