Which VPS to choose for WordPress
The most common DIY VPS are DigitalOcean, Vultr, and Linode.
DigitalOcean starts at $5 a month and you can use serverpilot or Runcloud (free). So depending on your setup you could be looking at a cost of between $5 to $15 or more a month. The DIY approach can definitely cut costs, but it also means that you are responsible if something breaks, and for optimizing your server for performance. The DIY approach can be great, but it can also backfire on you if you aren’t careful. Don’t go this route just because you want to tinker! Your time is worth money and you should be spending it on growing your business.
