I’ve been trying different hosting services from Digital Ocean, Vultr, and Linode for running my Don’t Starve Together community server and this video details the conclusions I’ve made about which is best for you and the limitations you should expect.
Please note that I’m not a professional, I may have overlooked something obvious and everything presented here is anecdotal based on my personal experiences. I’m in no way compensated for talking about any of the three cloud services mentioned in this video, when I used their hosting services I paid for it out of my own pocket.
