Where to Enter Digitalocean Coupon Codes:
It’s important to know how to enter promo codes correctly with Digitalocean, because they have a unique system that will tie you to a particular coupon if you aren’t careful. Confused? We’ll explain.
- First you need to create an account with Digitalocean by giving them an email and a password.
- Then you need to go to your email inbox to confirm your account.
- Now that you’re back at the sign-up page, now you can enter the promo code:
When you enter the promo code, it will either say: “This promo code is expired”, or “You Have Received $10 in Credits!”. Once you enter a valid promo code, it sticks. Digitalocean will send you an email confirming the fact that you have received a $10 credit for your account. There’s no taking it back.
That’s what we mean when we say you need to be careful. However, Digitalocean has streamlined their coupons and now all of them are $10 credits or two months free (which works out to $10 anyway).
New At Digitalocean:
Digitalocean now supports CoreOS! This tech is for developers: it enables you to quickly build server clusters and effortlessly deploy applications. Can you tell that I have no idea what that means?!
If you’re a developer and you’ve been waiting for this day, then congratulations. You can read more about the details on Digitalocean’s blog.
DigitalOcean isn’t your traditional website hosting company. DigitalOcean specializes in SSD (solid-state drive) cloud servers, which are considered faster and more reliable than regular servers. They promise that your SSD cloud servers will be up and running in 55 seconds. Since the company launched in 2012, DigitalOcean has created over 200,000 Cloud Servers. The cost of Digitalocean’s personal cloud servers can range from $5/month to $80/month; DigitalOcean also has high-end cloud servers that range in price from $160/month to $960/month. That may seem like a lot, but the $960/month comes with 24 cores and 96GB of memory!).
Recent Developments at Digitalocean:
Since we created this coupon page back in mid-2013, Digitalocean has grown exponentially to the point where it is threatening Amazon Web Services for cloud computing supremacy.
Digitalocean is now considered the 6th largest public cloud provider in the world. Considering that the company didn’t exist until just 3 years ago, that is an unbelievable growth spurt.
The company is headquartered in New York City, but boasts major data-centers all over the world: San Francisco (US), Singapore, 2 in Amsterdam, and a new datacenters in London, England.
The new London data-center will help bridge the large geographical gap between San Francisco and Amsterdam. It will also help quell fears over U.S. surveillance. All U.S. data-centers are subject to NSA wiretapping, according to some of the famous leaked documents from Edward Snowden. European Union data-protection regulations will prevent that from happening to servers operating out of London.
Digitalocean’s New Data-Centers are located in London, England.
