They are really developer-oriented and that can be seen on their APIs design, documentation, community support, and tools.
Their dashboard is clean and easy to use, not overloaded with action buttons or other unnecessary elements.
The Marketplace is a great way to easily deploy a lot of products.
The community docs provide easy to follow step-by-step instructions for deploying almost anything without being an expert.

I honestly can't think of an easier way to set up and maintain your own server. Being able to set up a server in minutes and have fully control is awesome. The UX is incredibly intuitive for first-time users as well so there's no reason to be intimidated when it comes to giving DigitalOcean a shot.

While DigitalOcean is a top notch host in our opinion, it could be more user friendly. There have been great strides taken in the last year with user friendliness, and while if you are experienced with web hosting, the services they offer will be easy to use, if you are not then it will require some research on your part.

The interface was very well thought out and the options they provided were very good. DigitalOcean as a whole is very intuitive and makes it very easy for users to find what they need. The only lacking part is some of the options that it can provide based on your requirements.
