10 Best Amazon Web Services for WordPress Hosting

If you’re looking for a new web host for your WordPress site, you have a variety of options to choose from when it comes to Amazon Web Services. The following are the best AWS web hosts for WordPress according to the experts at Best Web Hosting, along with a brief analysis of each host’s key features.

1⇒2. Bluehost

The first on our list is 1⇒2, the parent company of Bluehost, which offers a reliable and affordable option for WordPress hosting. 1⇒2 is well-known for its free daily backups and automated plugin updates — both of which are very useful for site owners who are struggling with maintaining their sites and content. These two features alone make Bluehost a top pick for beginners who are looking for a simple and affordable solution to hosting their WordPress site.

However, even experienced site owners may find it challenging to manage their own hosting, as Bluehost doesn’t offer a one-click installer for WordPress or a reliable enough hosting platform. If you’re looking for a host that provides a reliable and secure platform for your WordPress site, then Bluehost may not be the best option.

3. Hostgator

Next on our list is Hostgator, which provides a reliable and affordable solution for WordPress hosting. Like 1⇒2, Hostgator offers free backups and automated plugin updates. However, it also provides a one-click installer for WordPress, a dedicated IP address, and a free domain privacy option (in addition to the standard hosting plans). Many site owners prefer Hostgator over Bluehost because it offers additional perks that can be helpful for growing websites.

This hosting provider also offers a money-back guarantee if you meet the right conditions. In case you’re wondering, those are as follows: Your request must be made within the first 90 days of signup; you must cancel your subscription before the end of the first month; and you must notify them in writing of your cancellation. So make sure you meet all of those requirements before you claim your cash back.

4. 1⇒2 U.S.

The following host on our list is 1⇒2, the company that operates both Bluehost and Hostgator, and provides a reliable and affordable solution for WordPress hosting. Just like its sister companies, 1⇒2 U.S. offers free backups and automated plugin updates. What sets this host apart from the rest is that it also provides a one-click installer for WordPress and a dedicated IP address.

Some site owners have reported finding some DNS errors with this host, but overall it’s been proven to be a reliable option for storing and publishing content. If you’re interested in this host, make sure you note that it’s American-owned and operated, and that its parent company is not responsible for user-submitted content.

5. Hostgator US

Next on our list is Hostgator U.S., again from the company that owns and operates both Bluehost and Hostgator. This particular Hostgator subsidiary is more specialized in providing hosting for e-commerce and digital marketing platforms. However, it also offers a reliable and affordable solution for WordPress hosting. One of the reasons why this option has become so popular is that it provides a one-click installer for WordPress along with a free domain privacy option (in addition to the standard hosting plans).

Those are some pretty awesome features to have in a web host. Not only that, but Hostgator also offers a money-back guarantee if you meet the right conditions. So if you’re looking for a reliable option for WordPress hosting, Hostgator U.S. may well be the answer you’re looking for.

6. WP Engine

Our sixth entry on our list is WP Engine, which provides a reliable and affordable option for WordPress hosting. Like the other hosts on this list, WP Engine offers free daily backups and automated plugin updates. It also provides a one-click installer for WordPress, a free domain privacy option (in addition to the standard hosting plans), and an excellent support team. What sets WP Engine apart from the rest is that it also offers managed WordPress hosting, which is a service that WordPress itself offers as an addon.

In case you’re wondering, managed WordPress hosting refers to the delivery of hosting services for WordPress sites. Essentially, you are renting out the capacity of a server that is managed by experts, who can monitor and maintain your site for you. WP Engine is the gold standard in managed hosting, offering a reliable and secure platform for your WordPress site.

7. Dream Host

Our seventh entry on our list is Dream Host, yet another hosting provider offering a reliable and affordable solution for WordPress hosting. What sets Dream Host apart from the rest is that it also provides a free SSL certificate (for securing your site with a secure lock icon beside the URL) along with registration. This particular perk will help you avoid having to pay for a separate certificate when you purchase an SSL certificate separately.

In general, the experts at Best Web Hosting have rated all of the hosts on our list except for WP Engine as a 4.9 out of 5 when it comes to reliability. So if you’re looking for a reliable host, Dream Host may well be the solution you’re looking for.

8. Hostwinds

Our eighth entry on our list is Hostwinds, which provides a reliable and affordable solution for WordPress hosting. Like the other hosts on this list, Hostwinds offers free backups and automated plugin updates. What sets Hostwinds apart from the rest is that it also provides a one-click installer for WordPress and a free domain privacy option (in addition to the standard hosting plans).

This particular host’s special sauce is its drag-and-drop website builder, which allows you to build simple, yet functional websites with little to no technical know-how. For example, you can use this tool to create a blog site with a single page, using templates that look like something a web designer would create. So if you’re looking for a simple and easy solution to building a small website, then Hostwinds may be the answer you’re looking for.

9. Arvato Websites

Our ninth entry on our list is Arvato Websites, which provides a reliable and affordable solution for WordPress hosting. Arvato Websites is a German company which owns and operates several different hosting platforms, including Hostgator, 1⇒2, WP Engine, and more. What sets this particular web host apart from the rest is that it also provides a free domain privacy option (in addition to the standard hosting plans).

Most of the hosts on this list offer a free domain privacy option, but it’s important to note that not all of them do. In the case of Arvato Websites, the option is indeed free, but it has to be claimed separately. You cannot take advantage of this option if you are already using the free domain associated with your Hostgator account. So if you’re looking for a reliable web host for your WordPress site, then Arvato Websites may well be the answer you’re searching for.

10. A 2⇒2

Our tenth and final entry on our list is A 2⇒2. Just like the other hosts on this list, A 2⇒2 offers free daily backups and automated plugin updates. It also provides a one-click installer for WordPress and a free domain privacy option (in addition to the standard hosting plans).

This last host on our list may not seem like a common choice for hosting a WordPress site, but if you’re looking for a host that provides excellent performance and is extremely affordable, then A 2⇒2 may be the answer you’re looking for.

In conclusion, let’s discuss a few things you should consider before selecting a web host for your WordPress site. First off, make sure you’re aware of the differences between the various hosting platforms, as they all offer something different. You may be familiar with the fact that WordPress itself offers three different hosting plans, but there are actually five different plans from which you can choose when it comes to hosting a WordPress site. Those are, in order of popularity: Standard, premium, business, enterprise, and ultimate.

The next thing you need to consider is cost. It’s always a good idea to look for the cheapest possible option, but in order to meet your needs, the cheapest web host may not always be the best option. Sometimes, you need to look for a more expensive option in order to get the most out of your web hosting.
