    Very good article. Thanks!

    However, we should not forget the small independent companies that also offer hosting optimized for WordPress. They may not have such large infrastructure but for a personalized service, they will be hard to beat.

    The smaller hosting company is also much more flexible than the larger one. And very often cheaper or with more hosting options and services.

    To name only those, WPServeur in France (https://www.wpserveur.net/) or WP-Café in Quebec (https://wp-cafe.ca/) are perfect examples.

    What do you think?

      Agree with this 100%.

      But I’m biased, I work for an Australian WordPress hosting website.

      In business since 2008, we own our own tech / network (enterprise grade) and a level of support (in house / local) that none of the brands above can match. And we’re cheaper 🙂

      We also contribute to the local community via sponsorships, projects, helping not-for-profits, etc…

      Posts like this address a global audience so it makes sense to talk about global players.

      But good to point out that users should also look at what local players offer.

      I think there’s definitely a space for smaller players that can offer a more tailored managed WordPress setup for their customers.

      I’ve been experimenting with Servebolt lately and have been very impressed.

      With the tweaks they implemented I have been able to get some of my sites run faster on their servers than they did on Kinsta or WP Engine.
