  • My vote is for DigitalOcean. It is economical and the value it provides is astounding. However, deploying and managing a server on DigitalOcean is complex and thus you should either have sound technical know-how or you should opt for Managed Cloud Hosting Providers. The latter choice is a wiser option as it lets you focus on the business aspect of your website, while the professionals can take care of deployment and management of the server. It is easy to set up a Wordpress website on DigitalOcean server using managed cloud hosting services like Cloudways. *Source:
