LayerStack vs DigitalOcean vs Linode
LayerStack Vs DigitalOcean Vs Linode? Why And Which is the best for WordPress website hosting?
Cloud providers are offering diverse cloud features and add-ons aiming to enhance cloud efficiency and data security. In most cases, we just need to pay a small cost to enjoy powerful features like private networking, auto-backup, and DDoS protection. Some of the listed features are even free to enjoy, such as template and unlimited traffic.
Private networking and VPC are the uprising features for us to place sensitive data like customer information and transaction data. LayerStack and DigitalOcean provide the private network with dedicated VLAN by US$1.93/month (per region) and US$.01/GiB respectively. Although Lindoe states itself offering a private network, the network connects the whole datacenter, and users need to block traffic with a Firewall. The data security concern still exists when there is no dedicated VLAN for specific instances.
DDoS Attack Protection is widely used to protect servers and against volumetric DDoS attacks. Both LayerStack and Linode provide DDoS Attack Protection while Digital Ocean required us to work with a third party on the protection which takes more time on the setup and manages different platforms.
Unlimited traffic is rare in the cloud market. LayerStack unlimited data policy allows us to use as much data as we want, it is promised that no extra cost would be charged for data transfer. Linode will be charged $0.01 for each additional GB while the excess data transfer is billed at $0.01/GiB in DigitalOcean.
All in all, I think LayerStack, Digital Ocean, and Linode are good hosting providers. What’s your favorite for WordPress Hosting?
