  • What’s the difference between WP Site and WP Server?

    - by GB

    If your site is a relatively standard, business WordPress site, personal blog, portfolio site or a small WooCommerce store — our WP Site hosting should suit just fine.

    If your site is a larger, busy WooCommerce store, Multisite, Membership or LMS … or just a very high-traffic site — we recommend a WP Server.

    If you’re not sure what kind of hosting you need, please us contact and we’ll be happy to give you some unbiased, obligation-free advice.
