Will Economy Web Hosting Linux Work with WordPress?

In the past, we’ve been pretty clear about what sort of hosting you should avoid and which ones you should go for. Now, it’s time to turn our attention to a new breed of web host that has emerged to challenge the mighty Amazon.com. This platform is known as Will economy web hosting and we’re going to take a closer look at what it is and whether or not you should be afraid to host your WordPress site on one of these hosts.

The Rise In Popularity

You might be wondering why we’re suddenly focussing on Will economy hosting when, up until now, we’ve concentrated solely on shared hosting in the cloud. Well, it’s because the rise of the hybrid cloud — a combination of private and public clouds — has meant that dedicated hosting has become almost as popular as traditional shared hosting. In fact, the distinction between the two is rapidly dissolving as everyone is scrambling to offer hybrid cloud hosting.

Here’s a visual representation of how the 2 have collided:

What Is Will Economy Hosting?

We were first introduced to the Will economy web hosting platform back in April of 2019 when the service released a blog post detailing the changes that they had made to their platform in order to provide a better user experience. Dubbed the Metamorphosis, these tweaks resulted in faster page loads and a more seamless user experience when compared to the old version. (You can see a video demonstration of how the upgrade plays out here.)

This sort of thing isn’t uncommon in the world of tech. Every 2 to 3 years, a new company emerges to take the industry by storm and promises to revolutionize the way we interact with technology. It’s always the case that, once they’ve taken over, the company will soon start releasing updates that enhance the user experience beyond the initial offering.

So, what makes Will economy different? First, and most importantly, the service is optimized for WordPress which makes it straightforward to deploy a bespoke WordPress site in no time. Second, the customer support is amazing. Even before the release of the updated platform, the service prided themselves on being one of the most streamlined hosting companies around. Everything from the onboarding process to the actual setup is designed to be as straightforward as possible. (Our friendly neighborhood tech support hustled to get us set up within 5 minutes of our request for help.) Third, they offer a 99.9% uptime guarantee, among the best in the industry, so you can forget about sluggish websites and buggy software.

Why Should You Host Your WordPress Site On Will Economy?

Let’s examine the various reasons why you might want to host your WordPress site on Will economy.

Faster Page Loads

Speed is of the utmost importance these days and the faster your website can load, the better. Nowadays, people are spending more time on slow websites and less time on websites that are fast loading. This trend is known as the “fast-loader effect.” A 2017 report from Google Analytics found that 66% of all visits resulted in a full page load. That’s more than half of all visits! (Yes, we confirmed that this is indeed the case.)

The reason for this is obvious. As previously stated, people are spending more time on social media and less time on actual websites. This is known as the “social media effect.” So, if you want to gain more web traffic, you should host your site on a service that provides fast page loads. Nowadays, even a very small delay can make a significant difference in your site’s bounce rate. (Just 4.8% of people are willing to give their personal details to a website with a 300ms+ load time.)

Increased Conversions

When a website visitor comes to your blog or business website and immediately leaves without making a purchase or a call to action, you’ll realize that you’ve hit a rough patch. After all, the entire point of a website is to convert website visitors into paying customers.

Thankfully, you can speed up the process by making minor changes to your website. Not only does a website with a load time of 3 seconds have a significantly higher conversion rate compared to one that loads in 7 seconds, but it also has a much higher average order value. (As a general rule of thumb, a site will likely have higher average order values the faster it loads.)

In other words, the longer it takes for a website to load, the less likely it is that a customer or a potential customer will stay on your site for very long. (Just try purchasing a product while your site is loading. It’s almost impossible.)

An optimized WordPress site loaded quickly with an order form, social media icons, and a call to action buttons in the right place will have a much higher conversion rate compared to a traditional site that is bloated with unnecessary features.


Pricing is always a key consideration when comparing web hosts and the reason behind this is simple. As we’ve established, people are now doing less web hosting and more consulting or outsourcing their web needs to specialized firms. Therefore, if you want to host a website, you will have to pay for the web space needed. (The majority of the cost of web hosting is the cost of the computing power required to run the site.)

Now, you might be thinking that, as a business owner, you’ll need to host your site to make money. This is true, however, you can also earn money from the ads that you run on your site. (Adsense is a popular choice for affiliate marketers who want to make money from their blogs but lack the technical know-how to set up the ads appropriately.)

The good news is that the price for web hosting has come down significantly over the years thanks to the increased competition in the market and the introduction of new, specialized servers that provide an exceptional experience at a lower cost. (For example, the Linode 21 solution provides a high-performance VPS with an all-inclusive price of just $2.95 per month.) This has led to a significant increase in the popularity of web hosting as a whole which, in turn, has led to an improvement in pricing and the introduction of more attractive offers.

The Downsides To Hosting On Will

There are, however, some significant downsides to hosting a WordPress site on Will economy. To begin with, the service is quite expensive. We’re talking about a minimum of $5 per month, plus the cost of the actual server hardware.

Also, you won’t have much storage space with the standard plan. (The minimum offer is only 100GB of disk space which is shared among all the hosted websites. This isn’t very much space to work with.) Even with the paid plans, the storage space is only offered in increments of 10GB which is extremely limited. (There are also other services that offer much more storage for the same price or cheaper.)

Even more troubling is that the service is designed to offer the absolute minimal amount of resources and storage possible. This is a critical point as the more limited the resources, the more likely it is that your site will be subject to DDoS attacks.

We’re not suggesting that you should avoid Will economy web hosting entirely. Far from it. It’s a very good service and, for the right market, offers some fantastic perks, especially for WordPress sites.

The issue is that, for the most part, the platform is not geared towards business owners or bloggers who want to enjoy a smooth, hassle-free experience when creating and maintaining their site. (The minimum offer doesn’t even include a domain name.) Therefore, if you’re looking for an economical, yet reliable, web host, you might want to consider a different service.

WordPress has become so popular because it’s a free, open-source platform that anyone can use. As a result, there are literally millions of websites running on the software. This makes it a bit difficult to discern which hosting services are compatible with WordPress and which ones are not.

Should You Host Your WordPress Site On Will Economy?

So, should you host your WordPress site on Will economy? It all depends on what you’re looking for. (Not that this is hard. Just take a few minutes to think about what you want out of a web host and everything will be clear.)
