How to Install WordPress on Linode

Choosing the right cloud server for your WordPress is unfortunately not that easy. Why?

Although there is a lot of information on the topic, even expert users could make a mistake that could prove to be costly in the longer run. In addition, the number of cloud hosting providers, each with a different USP mix, also adds to the confusion.

To make the decision simpler, I advise you to try out Linode hosting for your next WordPress project. Linode is one of the fastest-growing cloud server providers with eight different data centers throughout North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. WordPress works extremely well on Linode servers simply because the service is extremely reliable and fast (plus, the price of the Linode cloud server is very reasonable).

Why Choose Linode Cloud Server?

Linode Cloud server is highly customer-centric and provides extensive support, making it a desirable option. However, it comes with a slight learning curve.

You must have hands-on experience with Linux to manage the server and overcome server-related issues.

Looks intimidating?

This is where Cloudways comes to the rescue!

It offers Linode as an IaaS on its WordPress hosting, removing all the hassles and allowing the users to save time by focusing on their business processes.

Without further ado, let’s install WordPress on Linode cloud servers!
