DigitalOcean - Growth

Cloud hosting startup DigitalOcean has grown extraordinarily over the past year. In December 2012, DigitalOcean had just over 100 web-facing computers; in October 2014, Netcraft found more than 108,000. DigitalOcean provides SSD-backed virtual computers which are available by the hour. The cheapest droplet, as it refers to virtual computers, costs less than a cent per hour, about a third of the price of Amazon's cheapest option. DigitalOcean claims to be able to provision a new droplet within 55 seconds in one of five locations: New York, Amsterdam (available since January 2012), San Francisco (April 2013), Singapore (February 2014), and London (July 2014).

Netcraft produces a dataset which provides a worldwide analysis of hosting companies. Each of the sites found in our monthly Web Server Survey is attributed to a hosting location using reverse DNS and IP address delegation information. Data for these networks is aggregated into parent companies so that a league table of companies controlling the largest number of web sites is produced. Find out more.

DigitalOcean's SSL certificate count represents the number of SSL certificates found in the Netcraft SSL survey that were running on DigitalOcean's infastructure.

Netcraft has developed a technique to identify movements of sites from one Hosting Provider to another on a monthly basis. Netcraft compares the hosting location of each site found by the Web server Survey as indicated by the DNS with the equivalent information for the same site in the previous month. Find out more.
