How to build a personal server in digital ocean

Actually I already have deployed my personal blog on digital ocean (yes it is this one). but I still want to take this note in order to remind me of how to use digital ocean to have a personal server for future use.

Click this to open the Droplet setting page:

Pick the type of server:

Then create it!

Wait for seconds, then my droplet is created. I have received one e-mail with my IP address and the password.
And then ssh this IP through my terminal:

After I connect to the server, I can use the command line below to update my server:

apt update    (check)
apt upgrade  (upgrade)

Now I can install any applications or environment I want in my server.
