The VM hosting service Digital Ocean started offering separation for hosting resources into different projects. This is a feature I wanted to see for a long time because I host many different servers for different purposes and different people. Digital Ocean has gone a step above just separating cloud servers and they allow projects to have all of their self contained resources. This makes it much easier to manage servers, domain names using Digital Ocean’s name servers, firewalls and any other components needed for a project. Before this feature all hosting resources were combined together and it could be hard to keep track of resources for different projects when you had multiple projects you manage and you host projects for other people.
When Digital Ocean added this feature I created multiple projects for each of things I’m doing on Digital Ocean including the various projects that I’m hosting for other people. This is a very exciting feature that I’ve been waiting for since I started using the service several years ago. They’ve done a good job adding features since then but this is one of the best that I’ve seen so far. The other best feature they added recently was doubling the server resources and now their minimum $5 plan includes 1GB of memory making it useful for any non-intensive hosting project.
This is not a paid promotion. This is my thought.
