How to Host WordPress Website on Vultr Cloud

by Saud Razzak  January 12, 2017

As WordPress is one of the most popular web applications, which infrastructure provider is hosting the app for your website plays a significant part in the user experience for your visitors. Not all WordPress websites perform the same, that much is clear from speed tests performed on many different URLs.

Recently, Vultr has emerged as a promising player in the Cloud Web Hosting scene. This is due to the low latency servers available in seven countries across four continents and the computing power of Intel Cores and solid state drive storage facility which Vultr offers on all plans.

However, running and maintaining a server on Vultr is a full-time job. This is why many lay persons have no idea how to host WordPress on Vultr Cloud.


The Cloudways Managed Cloud Web Hosting Platform gives you peace of mind and allows developers to concentrate on coding, and website owners to concentrate on marketing their WordPress site. Vultr server security is handled by Cloudways engineers, so you don’t have to spend time updating the OS and firmware.

On Cloudways, you can launch a Vultr server with WordPress installation within a few minutes, and maintaining it is a pleasant and convenient experience. 15+ metrics can be monitored in graphical format, and many critical server tasks are accomplished in a single click.

Let’s take a look at how to launch WordPress server on Vultr Cloud on the Cloudways Managed Cloud Web Hosting Platform. After that, I’ll explain how you can easily migrate your website from another hosting provider to your Cloudways Managed Vultr server with a handy tool.
