DigitalOcean – Droplets starting @ $5/mo + $15 free credit!

    Under developed and Internet censored countries need a 2.5$ package so that we can vpn out of them. Why, just why?

      Thanks for the feedback on that. While we do not currently have a $2.50/m service, I’d love to hear more about how we could make our $5/m droplet appeal to you :)

        If you can offer what your $10 have on that $5 plan, I will surely try yours. :)

    I guess the code is valid for new users only, isn’t it?

    • Jarland:

      Not necessarily only new customers, but it is usually true that existing customers have previously had another promo code applied to their account, and it doesn’t stack.

    Jarland any chance of a time restriction to credit being removed? hectic work schedule and a huge project todo list means i’ll get about 15 days of the 60 i got $insertsadface

      This credit will be good for one year. If you don’t use it by then just open a ticket and let us know that you’d still like to. We’ll be more than happy to apply a new one with the remainder of your credit :)

  12. Using DigitalOcean over 2 years. DigitalOcean brought the price war in LEB Cloud Industry. I can remember those days when Linode was too expensive, DigitalOcean was the cheapest competitor with trustability.

    These days Vultr, CloudCone are doing better. I always like such price and service war :D

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting webhostingtalk.com URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
