I was using Digital Ocean. I tried Ubuntu 16.04 and I was managing using a Server Avatar (Alternative of Server Pilot) I had some issues and because of poor support from both of them. I changed to Cloudways. I was having 5$ Plan first in Digital Ocean. I asked them can it handle the traffic. They said me no and to buy 17$ 1GB Server.
I was not having that good budget for now. I tried 7$ Plan and it is working fine. The best part is when you have any issues they handle our server and do it for us incase of Digital Ocean. They don't touch our server we need to do everything even if you want to install a simple phpmyadmin.
This 7$ Plan server is easily handling 5000 Views per day and it is superb and blazing fast with apache fast cgi and php-fpm which boost are site speed.
