All The Resources
Flywheel is by far the best website hosting solution for WordPress. Unlike other hosting providers, Flywheel does not provide email, template and plugin marketplaces or other extras. Instead, they focus only on being the best at what they do, which is host WordPress websites. If you want a secure, blazing fast, great value for money solution for your WordPress site this is it.
Flywheel constantly back ups your site, even if you mess up something you can fully restore your site with the press of a button. You don’t need any plugins to do it.
They offer free SSL certificates and hosting starts for as little as $14 a month.
Their customer service is also amazing. I (and many others) highly recommend them. I have tried most other solutions over the years and none of them come even close to Flywheel.
