Hi there,

For hosting a website built with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, and a database, you have a couple of very good options on DigitalOcean:

  1. App Platform: Use the App Platform for easy deployment and scaling of your web app. The platform can automatically handle the infrastructure, like servers and databases, allowing you to focus on development. You can choose a plan based on your expected traffic and resource needs and consider using a managed database for better performance and reliability.

  2. Droplet: If you prefer more control over your environment, you can use a Droplet, which is a flexible Linux-based virtual machine. For a PHP-based website, you would start with a basic plan and scale up as your traffic grows. You can consult DigitalOcean’s documentation on choosing the right Droplet plan for detailed guidance on selecting the appropriate size and specifications for your needs. Here’s the link to the relevant documentation: Choosing the Right Droplet Plan.

Evaluate your site’s resource requirements, expected traffic, and your comfort with managing infrastructure when deciding between these options.

Hope that this helps!
