Which Is The Best WordPress Hosting?

To choose the best WordPress hosting, consider the following:

  1. Enough storage
  2. Enough monthly bandwidth
  3. Great speed and performance
  4. Low price
  5. High uptime
  6. Upgrade anytime

After a few days of research and based on these requirements, the best option is the DigitalOcean at this moment on the market. The smallest package satisfies all the conditions:

  1. 25GB storage
  2. 1000 GB transfer / month
  3. High performance with SSD Disk
  4. $5 / month ($10 / month on Cloudways)
  5. High uptime (99.99%)
  6. Upgrade and downgrade is possible with a few clicks

Let's see how to set up your perfect WordPress Hosting

 

Easier way - Run WordPress on DigitalOcean through Cloudways

The easier (and more expensive) way is Sign Up on Cloudways and select DigitalOcean $10/month plan on the Pricing subpage. They will do the rest.

 

Cheaper way - Run WordPress directly on DigitalOcean

  3. Select the Marketplace and choose the WordPress image
  4. Scroll down until Choose a plan and select Premium AMD and the $6/mo plan
    Note: This plan has the best performance/price ratio based on my stress tests
  5. Scroll down until Choose a datacenter region and select the closest region to you
    Note: If your website is international, I recommend choosing London or New York
  6. Scroll down again until Authentication and enter one password. It will use for SSH login
  7. Scroll down until the big green button. Press Create Droplet
  8. Wait a few minutes, deploying...
  9. Click on the IP address when it's ready
  10. Connect to this IP with PuTTY (short guide here)
    Note: The username is root, the password entered by you in Step #6
  11. Follow instructions.

  12. That's all.
