The difference between shared hosting and DigitalOcean (DO) is all about control. As you scale a company a service like DO is critical because it allows you to customize to what’s needed for your clients and agency developers.

Greg Beelinger

CEO & Partner, White Rabbit Group

I did not want to be responsible for any hosting, we had a managed hosting. As we grew though and our requirements become bigger we ended up needing a different tech stack. We use DigitalOcean Kubernetes to power all our Docker images. We use DigitalOcean Spaces as well to do all the file serving.
