Hello,
I use Digital Ocean (DO) :
$80USD / month 16 GB Memory / 60 GB Disk + 100 GB / NYC3 - Ubuntu 16.04.3 x64
My websites often 504 error , I therefore need 16GB more ram.
This will cost $160USD or $180USD per month depending if shared or dedicated
(double the price per month for 16GB more RAM).
I emailed DigitalOcean and asked how much for 16GB more RAM - they responded to upgrade to the next tier of RAM (32) which costs the above amount.

Question : Is RAM supposed to be this expensive?
Paying double+ for 16GB more RAM seems odd to me.

they gonna also upgrade your disk space, maximum bandwidth and probably the CPU too. It is pre-built packages.

Hi, I am sorry to hear that!

Actually, the 504 gateway timeout error is usually caused when a server is unable to connect to an upstream server to complete a request.

Well, there are a few things which you need to consider to resolve 504 gateway error.

- Temporarily disable the firewall on your website
- Clean up your WP Database
- Deactivate all pulgins and reactivate one by one

Secondly, if you are a technical person then you did the right choice, but if you are non-tech then I would suggest you go with some managed cloud hosting provider like Cloudways. They have 5 infrastructure including DigitalOcean. You don't need to worry about any technical server errors, they will resolve by themselves.
