I also think the same. I don't have million of the visitor but I believe these specs are not good in quality lol. I'm planning to move to Kinsta, they seems to be best.
Then what about digital ocean
Mayanak... Hostgator or blue host business cloud should work for you with paid cache plugin. It will save lot of money with same speed.
Hostgator is shit, I've used it. Blue host is also not really good. These companies are definitely shit.
You can go with Siteground Cloud hosting. I am using it for my two blogs whatvwant.com and blogvwant.com. You can check the speed.
can you share your plan deatails?? how many daily visitors u have???
whatvwant.com has around 4000 unique visitors per day.
Blogvwant.com has less than 100 Unique visitors per day.
I am using Siteground Cloud hosting enty plan which gives 2 CPU cores and 4GB RAM.
Not only server improves the speed, we must use top class plugins and services also.
I also use Sucury security& CDN which improves my website speed a lot.
I also use optinmonster for popup which has minimal effect on page load.
how much amt you earn from whatvwant?? and u r from??
im using cloudflare free CDN.
mine is awesome for me
Yours is a well-designed blog!
