Wordpress hosting: Best hosting solution for devs

lefkatis profile image Andreas Lefkatis ・1 min read

Hello My hosting provider is shutting down and i am on the look for a new one.

I am looking for recommendations on where to host a simple low traffic personal portfolio site in wordpress.

It could either be:

  • Major Cloud provider: I can consider solutions like Azure, Google Cloud or AWS if its cheap enough and easy to setup
  • Shared Wordpress Hosting like or dreamhost or hostgator
  • Other cloud providers like zeit or netlify

I think what needs to be evaluated here is:

  • Yearly Price
  • Ease of initial deployment

Only mandatory requirement is to be able to have my own domain purchased independently (not from the hosting provider) and SSL certification

AWS lightsail is straightforward to setup, use and maintain through the management dashboard. Also includes easy to set up.

In all honesty, a simple portfolio should more’o’less be covered with just a static website that you can run for pennies on any of the static content host providers like netlify, etc.
