We remove the complexity and unpredictability from choosing which cloud to run your startup on. We ensure your cloud bills are predictable and affordable, while providing your business with a range of powerful compute options and networking tools that will scale with your business.
We are committed to making sure our cloud is easy for small businesses to use. Combining our compute flexibility, easy-to-use UI, powerful API, and extensive documentation, DigitalOcean’s cloud helps you save time on infrastructure so you can focus on building your business.
Considering the significance of cost-control in a startup environment, predictable bills are critical on the path to profitability. We know that cash is important to companies just starting to build their product, establish market fit, and hire talent. Our pricing model makes it easy for you to reliably forecast your costs, which is essential for early stage organizations.
Bandwidth costs can be substantial, perhaps even making up a majority of your cloud computing costs. And since you’ll often see bandwidth costs phrased as pennies per GB, you might dismiss this cost as negligible.
We charge only ~10-20% of what other clouds do for bandwidth. The savings can easily add up to hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars for apps that require large scale.
While your cloud architecture will look different depending on the type of business you’re building, we wanted to showcase the types of DigitalOcean products that startups use to power their ideas.
Our compute options give your startup the ultimate flexibility. Choose from our low-cost Basic Droplets or dedicated CPU Droplets, including CPU-Optimized and General Purpose Droplets. We also have Memory-Optimized Droplets when you need more compute power.
Whether you are just getting started or scaling your startup, we are here to help support your growing business.
We’re here for our founders. As you begin your startup journey, we support you with a community of technical experts and access to other founders who share learnings and advice from their own businesses.
With industry-leading price-performance, you can get started building your startup without worrying about cost. Between our compute options and 1-Click Apps Marketplace, we have everything you need to build your cloud stack – in minutes.
With DigitalOcean tools like Managed Databases and Managed Kubernetes, we have you covered as your product needs evolve. Our product stack, global data center presence and our predictable, low pricing mean we can support you as your go into production and scale.
DigitalOcean is the perfect platform. They provide the processing power we need and stable infrastructure to power our APIs. It’s so easy and simple to spin up a virtual machine on DigitalOcean. Other cloud products require more training and are more complicated. As a startup, DigitalOcean is the perfect product because of their transparent pricing. I know what I will be spending and can keep costs in control.

When you're small and you have a good idea, you often don't have a ton of funds to do it. And that was just a big driver for us. DigitalOcean (DO) was a no brainer. DO had the functionality that we wanted, the price was awesome. So that was a huge push."
