Actually I have a website (1.5k unique visitors daily, approx 50k monthly) and I am using shared hosting. I want to change me hosting and want to use server based hosting like digital ocean. So I want to know about cost which i have to pay actually.
I will prefer managed hosting like cloudways.
Choose manage hosting if want to continue longer with good audience experience.
In DO, you need min $5 plan for handling that traffic.
and what about cost? actually I don’t have much money to spend in hosting.
only $5 or any other charges ?
$1 optional for backup + 18% GST
per month? I can take backup manually but gst
Any Indian registered company will charge GST.
If you don’t want GST, go for USA based company Vultr and pay just $5/mo for 1 GB RAM server. Pricing is similar as DO.
but can i get server from india? because my target audience from india
No. Closest you can get is Singapore location.
so which will be the best digital ocean or vultr?
As per your requirement I would suggest - DO Bengaluru server. That is best fit for your target audience.
You can manage backup of site manually or UpdraftPlus if deploying WP. Further you can have Floating IP, DNS management free which is helpful.
While later one is also good the only concern is latency due to distance factor.
So Digital ocean final cost per month 6$ ?
Digital Ocean, Vultr, Cloudways are good under budget if you know to manage your sites without the use of cPanel like Control Panels. But if you don’t have coding knowledge, it will be very difficult to manage your site.
So, select your hosting plan with caution.
