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.
