oh no,I can’t visit digitalocean.

Are you behind the ‘great’ firewall?

It can be installed on most VPS’s with Ubuntu 18.04 offerings. Try a more local provider.

any more VPS server is recommended?(except digitalocean)

Plenty, but maybe the local regime doesn’t regard them like we do in the West, so even if they are not blacklisted now, they soon might be.

I would recommend you use something within the walls.

Perhaps a local Discourse admin can chime in.

Here’s another relevant Topic: Our Discourse is blocked by The Great Firewall of China, any tips?

Seems they were using Linode for a while, then …

We can’t support third party installation packages here.

That installation doesn’t use docker which is also unsupported. It appears to be for ARM processors.

You need to find a host where you can use the standard installation method.

There are no officially recommended VPS providers besides Digital Ocean.

Any hosting service which provides a standard Ubuntu image will likely work using the same instructions. Some examples would be:

  • vultr
  • scaleway
  • AWS lightsail
  • OVH cloud

Depending on your ISP/city some or all of those may also be blocked. (Even if not blocked, performance from inside the Mainland will be wildly variable for your users.)

[NOT SPONSORED, NOT THE OFFICIAL OPINION OF ANYONE]
I’m pretty sure Alibaba Cloud has a VPS offering. That’s probably the first place you should be checking, and would also allow you to have servers outside the mainland in case you have an international audience.
