I moved my server to the London DigitalOcean data center a month or so ago. My transition, like yours, was smooth and swift. DigitalOcean’s snapshot feature is really handy if you want to move a droplet to another location.

I didn’t change my DNS TTL when I made the switch but that is a great tip. I didn’t experience much downtime but because of the way DNS works I cannot say the same for other visitors to my site.

I plan on sticking with DigitalOcean. Although I’d appreciate a bit more transparency on their green energy practices (I had to read about them through a post on the DigitalOcean community).
