I have an agency,
We already have more than 50 customers that we provide in shared hosting via a local web hosting provider,
We want to start hosting the websites of our customers because, recently, we have problems with performance and speed.
After some research, I found that DigitalOcean offered good prices while providing European servers (our customers are based in this region and it will be great for them).
Most of our clients use WordPress / HTML landing pages (we have it installed and designed for them) and do not have big visitors (1K Visitors / Day / Average Customer)
We will use WHMCS, the questions I have are the following:
1- Is DigitalOcean a good choice to provide shared hosting?
2- Is it possible to give our customers a dedicated IP with shared hosting?
3- What is your recommendation?
I will hire a full-time server manager (SysAdmin) to manage migrations, maintenance, security, backup …
In fact, it is not necessary to use clients at this time, with the exception of minor tasks (migration, backup) managed by SysAdmin.
Our current customers pay $ 40 / year for accommodation.
And we expect a 100% increase in customer base by the end of the first quarter of next year if we only receive our customers,
But if we can provide a good service, we will expand our service by offering shared hosting to everyone.
