The Best WordPress Host

Read my review: Linode vs. Vultr vs. DigitalOcean

Siteground (GrowBig) is very ideal for hosting a number of websites. We like how we can choose a location for the web host. Comparing to a few web hosts we’ve used for a number of years, Siteground is one of the best for hosting multiple WordPress websites. Overall, it’s the best for a small digital firm that offers web hosting in the package.

The smallest plan starts at $2.5 per month, which is probably the cheapest plan for a VPS. Also, you can easily use it with SpinupWP. Other options include: Digital Ocean, Amazon Lightsail.
