We have a blog on WordPress, hosted on DigitalOcean, because it is a struggle to get engineering resources for this purpose. I managed the WordPress install. In DigitalOcean, they have tutorials for nontechnical people. WordPress is pretty bloated and would slow down our site.

We use DigitalOcean for hosting, instead of AWS. We chose them because they have a very well-defined cost model. With AWS, if you get a huge spike from something like a Product Hunt mention, you could be looking at a very big bill. Costs are harder to predict. DigitalOcean allows us to reliably predict our costs. They also have phenomenal customer support, and a very clean UI. AWS is not friendly or fun to use, and our time is limited. We love DigitalOcean because it lets us focus on what matters. We can spin up instances with pre-built stacks easily. AWS allows that too, but in the end, I had to ask myself, “Where do I want to spend my time?” and DigitalOcean was the answer. For example, with DigitalOcean, we needed WordPress, and with a click of a button we had a WordPress droplet up and running. Everything with them is very simple. They also have a really strong community of smart people, it’s very easy to reach the customer support department, and they are extremely quick to respond. It makes you feel loved, as a customer, and makes you feel like they actually care. And they’re made in New York, like us!
