CloudFyre’s WordPress hosting plans are not that much more expensive than basic shared hosting. And unlike shared hosting providers their WordPress specific hosting infrastructure means your site will be on average 45% faster than if it was hosted on shared hosting.
Meaning, you get more visitors and higher conversion rates for everything from product purchases and enquires to mailing list signups.
Take a look at these recent results:
- Budget shared hosting load time: 3.60 secs
- CloudFyre load time: 1.97 secs (that’s 45% faster)
In this test, a basic GeneratePress site was added on a shared hosting HostGator account. We then compared this site to one we created with an identical configuration but this time hosted on the CloudFyre platform (Personal Plan).
The sites were also tested with GTmetrix where we saw similar improvements.
From the above test it is clear that by upgrading from shared hosting to a faster dedicated WordPress hosting service like CloudFyre can have an massive effect on speeding up your site’s loading time.
When you factor in user experience and conversion rate improvements, you can see what can be uplifted just from increasing your site speed.
The hosting package also includes free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates and also has a 7 day free trial.
It’s also worth noting that they offer free site migrations which are typically completed within 24hrs of you making the request to support.
With CloudFyre’s multiple hosting plans, you can select to pay monthly or annually with the annual option offering 2 months free hosting.
If you want self-support, there are detailed walkthroughs and how to’s in the knowledge base.
Otherwise, there is also 24/7 fast live chat support and support tickets available.
How much does CloudFyre cost?
There are plans available from £4.99 to £999.99, so cover a wide range of hosting needs.
Which CloudFyre plan is right for me?
You should start with a plan that just about fits your needs, you can always upgrade later if you need to as there’s no need to move your sites, you just click the upgrade button and your set.
CloudFyre is a smaller, WordPress specific hosting provider, even though these days they have over 10,000 customers. That is still considered small compared to general hosting providers, so as a customer, you are more important to them and their fast support team certainly bears this out.
CloudFyre is a specialist WordPress hosting provider and has 24/7/365 support available on live chat and support tickets.
CloudFyre offers a great service at very reasonable rates, but can it compete with the top hosting companies?
Well, it certainly does in our book!
