DigitalOcean combined with ServerPilot or RunCloud is The Best and Reliable Cloud Hosting. Just $5 per month. Awesome!

DO a very good cloud hosting with a reasonable price. It is easy to use and it's always improving. I host a small Rails app on DigitalOcean with Cloud 66. Great combo.

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.

BUSINESS WISE A TOS LIKE THIS IS UNTENABLE, AND A COMPLETE FAIL.

Remote VM Hosting (ie. complete and total control over your hardware and software environment) at insanely low prices starting at less-than-a-penny an hour. Even the cheapest plan is extremely capable for software development and lightweight hosting and is capable of providing a graphical desktop environment to connect to via a protocol of your choice (VNC, RDP, etc)

The best I've tried so far. It's super easy to set stuff up and super easy to customize it. The only issue I've had is sometimes the interface glitches out, but it's nothing serious. People complaining about them not having a TOS probably got their sites shut down for a reason and plus should've had a database backup.

DigitalOcean is a great choice for developers and development environments, quickly deploy large amounts of server capacity and pay only per hour for what you use with straightforward pricing, I did the mistake using their servers for a production environment with a couple of game servers, although the performance was acceptable it became a complete mess once the DDoS attacks started rolling in since the bandwidth is dropped for 3 hours even during minor attacks. Support says there isn't much to do other than buying DDoS protection from an external provider.

To be fair, on the server where I hosted my website, database etc I was able to use Cloudflares free plan to avoid being locked out during DDoS attacks and as a development environment it was great. A disadvantage is the slow CPU speed of 1.8GHz, at least for the smaller plans in the locations I tried. Since most physical servers has either 2.4GHz or 3.6GHz CPU's there is a small possibility that they are using shared cores.
