I’m curious if the community would be interested in a guide converting a DigitalOcean droplet to a conventional VPS for web hosting.

This would include all your basic VPS features.

  • cPanel (DNS, email, subdomains, etc)
  • IPS
  • Firewall
  • Web FTP


Just out of curiosity :)

We do offer a guide on setting up cPanel though it is a bit old. Generally we prefer to focus on open source technologies in our guides.

We work with a lot of community authors through our “Get Paid To Write” program. The form there is currently shut down during the holidays but I’d urge you to check back and reach out to our Editorial team.

Although the installation for cPanel is relatively simple, the script does take several hours to run. Here's how to install cPanel on a virtual server running Centos 6
