I know the debate on best WordPress hosting is an endless one and you get 10 different answers if you ask 10 different people, but I'd love to know who you host with, are you happy, what's it cost, why are you with them, etc?
I'll kick it off. I host on Cloudways and have had both Google Cloud and Vultr servers and have been super happy with both. I ended up closing my GCE servers and sticking with Vultr because I wasn't thrilled with the idea of paying bandwidth to host client sites who are on a flat fee maintenance program.
From the performance perspective, GCE on Cloudways was fantastic. Super fast and reliable, but Vultr is like 90% as good so the cost difference wasn't really justified in my mind.
I host around 70 sites across 4 servers on Cloudways and my bill is about $130/m and I couldn't be happier.
Automatic nightly offsite backups, free LetsEncypt SSL, great caching and speed related settings enabled by default, latest PHP and MySQL, cross server cloning, staging sites, and more.
This isn't an ad for Cloudways, just wanting to share my experience and hear your thoughts.
