Our transparent pricing model, industry-leading price to performance ratio, and low bandwidth pricing enables you to scale your network-intensive game without worrying about unexpected costs.
DigitalOcean includes all the cloud products game builders need, from CPU-Optimized virtual machines that give your game fast and consistent performance, to Load Balancers, Virtual Private Clouds, and managed Kubernetes.
Our community tutorials, documentation, and personal customer support mean you’re supported throughout your journey building your game.
DigitalOcean has supported game builders at all stages of their growth, from founders just starting out to 100-person businesses who are rapidly scaling to meet their users’ demands. Our flexible game server hosting solutions means that any type of game can be built on DigitalOcean--current customers include games of all complexity levels building for an array of audiences.
Our game would not have been viable without DigitalOcean’s low pricing - our costs would have been 8x higher. It would be much harder for our game to make sense financially and maybe would have to shut it down.

We adopted DigitalOcean's Managed Kubernetes to deploy one of our analytics systems. We chose DigitalOcean because of its developer-friendly dashboards, clear pricing schema, and excellent documentation. These things made it possible for Super Lucky to create a Kubernetes cluster, stateful deployments, load balancers and services in a matter of days instead of weeks.
