Getting Started with Droplets

DigitalOcean Droplets are Linux-based virtual machines (VMs) that run on top of virtualized hardware. Each Droplet you create is a new server you can use, either standalone or as part of a larger, cloud-based infrastructure.

Just the essentials to go from zero to working in a few minutes.
Create a new Droplet with our recommended configuration for improved security, reliability, and monitoring.
