I have spent the better part of a week tumbling down the rabbit hole that is modern Wordpress hosting solutions. I am in the process of setting up a freelance web business, starting off with basic Wordpress website development and management and have made it to the point of having to decide on using a managed Wordpress host (SiteGround) or go the VPS route for hosting client websites.
Going the VPS route and using DO seems like the all-round best solution, but I have read enough opinion pieces on server and Wordpress maintenance to scare me right on back to a managed hosting solution.
I am by no means an experienced sysadmin (but am willing to learn). What I am unsure of in point form is:
So finally, for someone trying to do what I am doing, with my level of experience, what is the most appropriate hosting solution?
Thank you in advance for any insight on this :)
