DigitalOcean Comments

Definitely not for commercial or professional OR ARTIST use (copyright grabber)

Negative Comment by IonChristopher
about DigitalOcean Oct 2015

The TOS is clear that if you post it - they can do what they want with it - in perpetuity. Making this one of those MONEY HOSTS that would not be legal in France, that mandates fair treatment of artists.

I sincerely think that this should be outlawed because it is just not a fair and above-board way of doing business. It would be fair to outlaw it and level the playing field if it costs $.50 cents more.



Great for development, not production

about DigitalOcean Jun 2015

Good setup for development systems. Not really reliable enough for production. Far too many stories of losing data and systems.
