This video is an actual use case. One of our partner’s websites was suffering from sluggish performance even on Digital Ocean’s dedicated VPS with 1GB RAM, 30 GB storage and 1 CPU. It was discovered that the CPU was 100% fully utilized not letting the public traffic or users to open the website.

We then resized the VPS, we increased the RAM of the VPS to 2GB simply by turning off the VPS (of course, the site would be down during that time) increasing the resources and then turning it on. The website traffic was huge, huge increment could be observed.
If you haven’t already, you can also signup for Digital Ocean service. The basic Droplet costs 5 $ per month. Without sign up link you get 10$ instantly and 25$ after later use. https://bit.ly/godovps
