Pros: I don’t think you can find great product with full VPS for $5/mo. If you need to install and configure everything the way you want having a product that offers you full VPS is the most powerful thing in the world. I believe you need to have some expertise and if you have or you want to hire someone with experience this will remove any limits when it comes to share hosting.
Cons: I don’t have some serious dislikes about Digital Ocean, just some minor things: it’s not for beginners, but the good thing is you have plenty of tutorials so you can easily learn how to run this software. When it comes to speed I have to say that some operations are slow such as imaging, provisioning and others.

Pros: Good performance, affordable prices, enough essential features
Cons: Ok, so I’ve been using DigitalOcean since 2013 and everything was just fine. An on May 31 2018 something really worrying happened, all my files got deleted and I received this email:“We sincerely apologize, however, there was an incident impacting the Spaces service that resulted in a number of Spaces and the data within them to be deleted. At this time we're performing a full internal investigation to determine what the cause of the issue was as well as why it happened. Once we have a full understanding and additional details to share, we'll follow up.At this time, unfortunately, we can confirm that the data within your Spaces has been lost and is not recoverable. We deeply apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.”They never informed me further and none of my files were restore. No compensation except for $400 on my account, saying:“You have been granted credit to use on your DigitalOcean team for $400.00. We’ve updated your balance, which you can view at your team's billing page. Please note that this credit will expire after 12 months if it's not used.”I took severe loses… Now I am in the process of transferring to another service.Well, decide for yourself whether use their services, but I am really devastated by both my losses and their absolute ignorance.
