What do I need to know about hosting a wordpress site on a DigitalOcean droplet?

I have moved one of my small sites over to DigitalOcean using their one click Wordpress install and have it up and running with SSL using lets encrypt.

My main question is, as someone that has always used shared or managed hosting plans what do I need to do differently to make sure everything stays running smoothly?

For the time being I will just have one site on the droplet and that site gets very little traffic so I'm just really concerned with getting it setup properly and making sure I do things the right way.

I have a little Linux/coding experience if that matters.

Thanks in advance
