If you want to try the VPS (Virtual Private Server) technology for free, one of the best solutions is this offer from DigitalOcean.
Sign Up via this link and you will get $100 credit for free. It's enough credit to operate a VPS for up to 20 months! The smallest VPS price is only $5 / month with 1 core, 1 GB RAM, 25 GB SSD storage, and 1000 GB transfer.
I started to build my WordPress MU website on UK based VPS and stayed here. Let's see why:
- Hourly pricing
- Scaleable - Easy to upgrade VPS with few clicks
- High uptime (actually I never realized any downtime since 2014)
- Great support
- Great articles
- Worldwide locations (New York, Amsterdam, London, Bangalore, and so on...)
- One-click droplet creation and destroy
- Preinstalled Debian, CentOS, Ubuntu, and Fedora images
- One-click snapshot creation and restore
- Firewall (for free!)
- and so on...
Note: If you sign up without the link in this article, you will not receive the $100 credit.
