We are small web developing agency, have around 50 websites. Can you please explain the packages. Like for 10 websites what package I need or for 50 what package I need.

use multiple droplets according to load that your sites generate.

I mean 1 droplet for 5 site, another for 10 sites etc etc. It is much simplier than try to precalculate that stuff

so the the smallest package 5$ per month is for 5 sites.
80$ per month package for 80 sites ?


You can't really say that the $5 per month VPS is for 5 sites, etc... It really depends on what type of site it is, what software it's running, and how much traffic it will receive. DigitalOcean provides unmanaged hosting. You get a VPS with full root access, but you also need to set everything up yourself.

If your websites are all static sites you could probably host many more than 5 on a $5 VPS, especially if you put a caching solution in front of it. If you are running websites that make use of a database like MySQL, you'd probably want to go with a larger option if you are going to run many sites on it as you'll need the memory.

Let us know more more about your sites, and we'd probably be able to give you a better idea.

Hi Astarr,

So all website are Wordpress. Using MySQL. Some of the site have traffic around 500 per day and some of them 10-50.

I looking for some quick deploying solution where I can use GitHub and Nginx.

If you have some good tutorial how to prepare, would be very helpful. Thanks

Hi Mike,

I would recommend the $40 Plan from Digital ocean for 50 sites all using wordpress as this plan has plenty of ram to keep to continuous MySQL Queries alive.

The plan also has quite a bit of disk space and bandwidth.
