Digital Ocean Experience
Looking for a hosting service? For about 55 seconds, Digital Ocean said that's how long it'll take them to provision a server. That sounds effective, and the cost is relatively low compared to others, making it a cost-effective option.
Create A Virtual Server
I signed up at Digital Ocean, requested a server with CentOS, and chose Singapore region for hosting the image since that location in Asia is closer to one of my projects' target audience. It took 58 seconds wait time for creating the image. It lives up to the promise. Immediately, in my email box I received the IP and the root password so I can access the virtual host remotely via SSH.
