I've been flopping around the internet looking for better hosting, but it hasn't gone well so far.

Any ideas?

@kev I used Cloudways' cheapest option with Digital Ocean for several years until I switched to a static site.

@be I’m considering doing that and just seeing how it goes. They recommend using the 1GB VPS for dev work only, but @g said he was using the smaller package too.

@kev @g I guess that depends on your use case. For my low traffic personal website, the cheapest Cloudways option was fine.

@kev @be @g I host a bunch of WP sites (including some multisites with hundreds of sub-sites) on $10-$40/month Digital Ocean instances via Docker. Some have fairly heavy traffic. Very cost-effective & reliable over the past few years.

@kev with being on the smallest package I'm hosting 2 live sites, 1 analytics (Matomo), and one test site.

On average I use around 30% of the CPU.

Kev, you can always upgrade to 2GB if you feel you need to at anytime.
