Growing websites like travel blogs require more and more resources to keep performing at their best.
Travel blogs are equipped with lots of content, pictures, videos, and resources that are regularly updated to keep the content fresh and engaging.
This can mean a heavy load on servers and can send your website crashing if you do not have the best hosting provider keeping you up and running smoothly.
We have been running our travel blog now for 9 years and have used many different types of hosting providers from shared to dedicated servers.
Until recently we were hosted by Websynthesis and were very happy with them. And then their company was bought out and taken over by a very very expensive WP Engine. We didn’t want to pay more than our already $80 a month.
Thankfully, our website manager, Chris from RTWlabs knows his stuff and recommended we join Cloudways, a cloud hosting service he had been researching and surmised that they were the best option for us moving forward.
It has been several months now that we have been using Cloudways with no crashes or issues. We are very happy with them, especially considering our costs per month have almost halved and we still have a highly optimal and smooth running site.
Because I do not understand anything about the technical aspects of cloud hosting and why it’s a good choice for your blog, an expert from Cloudways offered to share the nitty gritty with you in this post.
Most of it goes over my head, but all I can tell you is I am happy with whatever that nitty gritty is doing in the background to keep me hosted and secure.
So what makes cloud hosting so important and what is the best cloud hosting for your travel blog? Let’s discuss!
