Question

Where can I find a freelancer to manage my site on digital ocean?

I’ve had my wordpress site moved here by a freelancer at the promise of higher speeds, which is true, but my site is now often down, and I have mailserver problems… clients are getting bounced mails!!.. and I am not in a position to do maintenance or continuously troubleshoot myself.

How can I get someone to help me with support?

If you are hosting something important I would suggest hiring a company rather than an individual. This way you can ensure your Droplet is monitored 24x7 and you receive professional support. Hiring a freelancer is best for one time services as you cannot expect a quick reply if your site goes down in the middle of the night.

WebHostingTalk has a list of such companies. I have read some good reviews about a New Jersey company named Platinum Server Management which offers services for $29/month. You can get a CPanel license and get one of these companies to manage the VM.

Note: I am in no way related to any of these companies.

Hi Jon, thanks very much for your offer (and warning). My server is up and running, but I don’t have the technical chops to do the maintenance or troubleshoot when something goes wrong.

I appreciate the willingness to help but I’m looking to pay someone a small monthly fee for the maintenance. I’m not sure how long until DO offer managed hosting, as that would obviously be the best solution. Actually considering transferring to flywheel, a more expensive solution but would at least be without the security concerns you pointed out.
