I’ve just moved to Cloudways a couple of days ago and would appreciate your thoughts on cost planning.
At present I am using the cheapest plan on DO. I have two Wordpress applications running, one as a temporary store of an old site I’ll be moving to a local copy soon and one that serves H5P resources for use on Google sites - which are not publicly accessible as yet.
I’ve just received an invoice for server charges I was not expecting (there is next to no traffic as yet) and would like to know how to plan for future charges when I move to the next phase where my sites are ‘live’.
Aside from offsite backup the invoice I have on the system gives next to no detail (see below) about what the charges are for, which makes planning for future costs rather worrying. It is the server charges that concern me - at present the costs are so low they are irrelevant, but I am planning an membership elearning site with ecommerce features that might be quite resource hungry.
DO Server: Your Server Offsite Backup Charges USD 0.50
DO Server: Your Server Server Charges USD 0.40
