Today I switched my WordPress site to DigitalOcean (from BlueHost Shared Hosting), using their trial $100 for 60 days offer and I must say I’m impressed with the blazing fast page speed.
Here’s a comparison to illustrate what I mean by blazing fast page speed –
On BlueHost shared hosting:
DOMContentLoaded: 3.41 s load: 3.44 s
On DigitalOcean basic droplet ($5/month):
DOMContentLoaded: 201 ms load: 236 ms
There’s not much else to share in this post. It is simply a status update. In case you want to try it out, here’s a referral link to DigitalOcean which shall give you $100 credit over a 60 day period.
