Anyone use DigitalOcean?

How long does there support take to answer? I made a ticket on the 27th of feb that was never answered and another ticket a few hours ago, just in case something happened to the first.

I am looking for a cheap place to run a node server. And Amazon isn't that.

          Cheaper, you can pay with crypto, but they do have issues. Their servers were absolutely shitting the bed last month, something I've never experienced with DO.

            if you're an enterprise and care about availability you can set up an anycast network with falling back i guess

          There are no available servers/vps for a reasonable price in Luxembourg (their only european datacentre). Everything is out of stock in LU.

    All fun and games until they restart your box due to an unscheduled maintenance

      if you want more than 4 nines of availability you sign a SLA or gtfo, you ain't gonna get that availability in a 3 dollar vps

      AWS price point blows. If I want a constant running node process the cost is threw the roof.

    Oracle Cloud gives you a free 24gbram 4vcpu box. If that's enough for your usecase..

        Your box can get shut down at any time if its under 30%cpu load, and its on an availability basis.
        They will never ever charge you if you're on free tier, but if you want your box to stay you upgrade to pay as you go (you still won't get charged as long as you stay within free limits)
        The catch is that it's Oracle. They are infamous for being; uh.. just google it.

          I know about Oracle, but is Amazon really any better?

            AWS is an entire ecosystem. If you JUST NEED a vm, oracle free tier is good, if you accept the rug can be pulled. AWS is good if you buy a Reserved instance and pay upfront, the discount hovers 40-60%. The thing with AWS is that the value comes from its massive ecosystem: caches, message queues, email, object storage, etc.. if you look at pricing only its a race to the bottom.

            I had servers in a colo for years. I need a node server. Everyone using AWS screams Lambda, and it can't do what I need. I am not really interested in being pigeon holed into Oracle or AWS. Both of them seem to want you to use their solution to your problem. For the most part, I want a server or two and to be left the frick alone.

            I am somewhat interested in the pay as you go tier on Oracle, as I don't think I'll be over it much. But I may, depends on the consumers.

            Lambda is excellent AND dirt frickin' cheap but it has a very restrictive usecase. What type of node server? If it's just a stateless server with some functions, just use lambda. Otherwise, use a VM

            Needs to be a VM, it's doing 3 different jobs and two of them have to be up at all times.

        ime they dont provide any more than four nines of availability but if you aren't like amazon-tier then it's probably cheaper and less headache inducing since they dont have a shitton of moronicly named services like aws

        You can look at Scaleway, Hetzner, OVH, or the one I use, which is wholesaleinternet.net based in Kansas City MO which is middle of the USA and should have decent latency to anywhere in the USA.

    AWS Lightsail is their VPS offering, it's pretty average price-wise and a nginx install is all good to use at least for me.
