Yes, Digital Ocen is one of the top cloud hosting companies and works well with WordPress. However, you'll need to consider this:

  • Digital Ocean is a non-managed hosting environment. After the droplet is deployed it will be up to you to maintain, configure, and monitor both the server and WordPress. 
  • The WordPress install on Digital Ocean is straightforward and there are many guides available to help you install this on your hosting service. 
  • If you are looking for a managed hosting service it is better to go with Cloudways. This is a partner of Digital Ocean. 
  • This site has great performance but unfortunately, this site isn't for newbies
  • If you not using a server helper like serverpilot then you'll have a very hard time setting this up on your own. 
  • Bluehost is a great company and the price is reasonable per month. You should be able to get your hosting for around $2.95 a month, where Ocean Digital will charge you $5.
