When it comes to WordPress hosting, most bloggers and hosting review sites will recommend shared hosting and managed WordPress hosting solutions.
Before diving into cloud WordPress hosting, let’s understand some differences between a shared hosting and a managed WordPress hosting.
Shared WordPress Hosting will not give you the full power of WordPress and often times the site loading speed will be very slow. And shared hosting plans are comparatively low priced. Once such good example is Bluehost Hosting, which offers WordPress hosting for as low as $3.95/month. This hosting is ideal for low traffic and less mission critical WordPress blogs and websites.
Then you have managed WordPress hosting, where you will get WordPress hosting on well-optimized servers. The hosting provider will take care of security, DDoS attacks, best in class caching and great backend servers fo your hosting. One such example is WpEngine Managed WordPress Hosting. It will cost $200/month. This hosting will be used by mission critical WordPress blogs and websites which need 100% uptime and blazing fast loading times.

You can start the servers when needed and stop it when not needed. So that you will be charged only when the server is running.

The first thing you should understand when it comes to cloud WordPress hosting, it that, you will have to manage the installation, security and other configuration of WordPress on your own. So if you don’t have the understanding of Linux server configurations, it’s better to go for a managed WordPress hosting or hire a good freelancer for setup.
