WordPress Live Streaming droplet

Posted March 28, 2021 281 views

What we are looking for is the creation of a WordPress web page that has the option of doing live streaming from the same web page. We want to know what type of server would be necessary to start with an audience of 100 users per month for the first 3 months, then we have a projection of 1000 users after 3 months. What we have doubts is whether a WordPress website can be created on a transmission server.

Hi @henrymendeez,

The droplet size is based on a lot of factors like traffic(you’ve given numbers) website optimization and droplet optimization. Having said that, I always give the same example, until you are not sure, you can always start with the smallest Droplet available.

About resizing:

There are now two options, permanent and flexible.

Permanent resizing allows you to resize your disk space as well as CPU and RAM. As the name implies, this is a one-way operation. After increasing the disk size, you will not be able to decrease it.

Flexible resizing only upgrades your CPU and RAM. This option is reversible and gives you the flexibility to scale up and down as needed.

As for the last question, can you please confirm and give a little bit more information about what do you mean by a transmission server?

Looking forward to your reply!


  • Hello, thanks for your answer.

    The website will be a live streaming site for news and radio. The business will have a physical radio installation in an office and they want to do Live Streaming of the show.

    For the first 3 months will be streaming 1 hour daily, and than after the 3 months will be 3 hours daily. The amount of users is about live viewers.

    First 3 months -> 100 viewers
    After 3 months -> 1000+ viewers

    What could be the best option to start this project here in DigitalOcean?
