Question

Which service should I use for a website/web-app which has multiple app products for many users?

I am starting a business that provides many users with different types of trading bots and other products. I am currently creating a separate app manually for each user when they register and buy one as there are few users. I know this is tricky but it works for a small number of users I currently have. I can create a multi-user application where I just add a user to the database and run their app in a separate thread, but the point is that it is far better that each user have their own bot for the sake of performance. My question is: Is there a service in Digitalocean that I can manage all the separate apps in one place and most importantly automate the process of creating a dedicated app for each user when they register and buy one of them?

Hello,

I could suggest two options:

  • If you have server administration skills, you could go with the DigitalOcean Droplets. You can create an automation script for provisioning and managing the Droplets using Terraform or Ansible for example:

Ansible tutorial:

  • Alternatively, if you do not want to take care of the server administration, you can go for the DigitalOcean App Platform. It would automate all of the build and deployment processes for you and again you can manage it via the API as described here:

Hope that this helps!

Best,
