What is DigitalOcean?
Simply put DigitalOcean is a ☁️ cloud platform allowing anyone to host things like websites and applications on DigitalOcean servers. DigitalOcean will then take care of all the hardware, and operating systems technicalities.
DigitalOcean is a cloud computing vendor that offers an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform for software developers. DigitalOcean is very popular with open source developers offering a great alternative to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Compute Engine.
It is commonly said that the advantage of using DigitalOcean is its ease of use, developer-friendly, practical, and predictable low-cost server solutions.
What Is the DigitalOcean Marketplace?
The DigitalOcean Marketplace allows developers to easily discover and quickly launch services, components, and tools from open source projects.
The DigitalOcean Marketplace is the home for Droplet 1-Click Apps, Kubernetes 1-Click Apps, and SaaS Add-Ons. 1-Click Apps are pre-built Droplet (explained more below) images and Kubernetes apps with the software, features, and configuration details already set up for you.
It is for the operators that want to set up their own DIY exchange. But more specifically for DigitialOcean, it is a cloud system targeted to small developers and small businesses who need to quickly start up a small high-performance instance. DigitalOcean also gives the user a clean, easy-to-use interface with fewer features and one-click deployments.
Operators using the HollaEx DIY Basic and Boost are the perfect target audience for HollaEx DigitalOcean and if you want to test the HollaEx system out in a low-cost manner then using DigitalOcean HollaEx is a sound choice.

When you create a DigitalOcean account, you can choose to sign up with an email address, with Google, or with GitHub single sign-on (SSO).
Once you’ve created a DigitalOcean account, you should protect it with device verification by default. This only applies to email and password sign-ins without 2FA and does not apply to GitHub or Google SSO.
After you create an account you can proceed to HollaEx hosting page and click ‘Create HollaEx Kit Droplet’.
What's a Droplet?
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.
If you are new to HollaEx or just want to start as fast as possible then by going to your exchange dashboard and then selecting a pre-built cloud exchange plan your exchange could be up and running within the hour without having any technical setup on your part, even the simplified version that DigitalOcean offers!
