Cost effective, when compared to AWS/GCE. Compare with other cloud providers.
Popular in the mid-price hosting category.
Scaling up process is slower than with Amazon / Google (typically under ten minutes). Scaling down is not possible (you need to use our clone feature to clone existing server to a smaller one). Scaling processes involve downtime.
Backup/restore processes are a bit slower than Amazon (as we store backups on Amazon infrastructure). Snapshot backups not available.
When a server is stopped, we will charge for the whole server as if started (DigitalOcean policy).
Cheap bandwidth. Good solution if your applications use lots of it.
