You can lock in a long billing cycle for the best discount. These web hosting plans will renew for the same period length as your initial order, but without the discount.
Scale the VPS
The possibility to scale up or down your plan (except disk space – disk space can’t be scaled down) like in the cloud is neat.
All Hostwinds plans with cPanel have auto SSL which gives all your websites https for automatically for and for free.
Now all of the VPS plans by Hostwinds have SSD storage by default.
A cPanel cloud license costs $15/mo, and that is also included in our listed price to make it easier to compare with the other plans. cPanel is an optional extra. Softaculous is another $2/mo. $2/mo per extra standard IP address. Hostwinds also offer DDoS protected IP addresses, as well as C-Class IP addresses.
Basic server monitoring is another $5/mo. Cloud backups make sure your data is safe and accessible and starts at $1/mo and is performed daily.
I would suggest talking to a support representative after purchase to make sure the cloud backups are running.

Pageviews and website limit
You can host a maximum of 10 WordPress sites with this plan. You can also maximum get 200.000 pageviews per month to your websites before you would need to upgrade. These are pretty high limits compared with similar hosts.
Annual billing - Monthly avg price
As with all of our listed web hosting plans on WHCompare.com, you need to pay for a year to get the listed price. This includes 2 months for free! You can get the 2 free months every year of your hosting, as long as you select yearly billing. The price should stay the same after your initial year.

You can move to Pressable really easy with their free managed website migration offer. It is available for up to 5 websites, but they notified me that they soon will offer more website migrations once their plugin to do so for them are finished.

Pressable offers WordPress training material and free expert web hosting and WordPress support when needed. 24/7 ticket support is included while live chat support costs extra.
Other included features
You'll get a premium CDN by StackPath included with your hosting for ensuring fast load times globally. That CDN is worth around $10 per month. You'll also get the Premium version of the popular Jetpack plugin which is worth $9/mo. This plugin includes 100+ WordPress themes, image and video CDN, malware scan and removal, lazy loading of images, daily backups for your site kept for 30 days, website stats and Analytics integration.
You'll also get daily offsite backups stored on the secure Amazon S3 included with every Pressable hosting plan.
If you need to upgrade you can do so and they will migrate up to 5 of your sites for free to the more powerful server and your billing will protate.
Adult WordPress hosting allowed
This is one of the few WordPress web hosting plans that actually allow adult sexual content to be hosted with them. You will need to ask their support though as each such site with will have to be approved individually.

The VPS plans by Namecheap is no exception when it comes to their offerings of cheap and high-value services. However, they charge a pretty high price for upgrading the VPS plans to be managed.
Level of management
There are three levels of management you can choose for this VPS. User-responsible, Basic, and Complete.
All three of these include free customer support advice and initial VPS setup.
The price we listed here includes Complete server management.
You can save $25/mo if you go with User-responsible and $10/mo if you go with Basic. You would instead have to pay for work relating to core software changes, fixing server failures and restoring the server if it fails.
The free domain is not .com but a .website domain, and it is only free for the first year. After that, the standard Namecheap rates apply.
cPanel and Softaculous
cPanel is required when selecting the Basic or Complete server management plan.
Softaculous is optional extra and costs $1.5/mo.
With Complete management, you’ll get 50 GB of off-site backups storage.

To get the price of $35.95/ mo you need to pre pay for 1 year of hosting. If you want to pay on a month-to-month basis the price will be slightly higher: $39.95/mo.
The DreamPress hosting plans has lots of bells and whistles for your WordPress site. They will install WP for you with several plugins and themes that are considered "battle-tested" by DreamHost. They promise to serve your web pages lightning fast with features like SSD storage, Object Caching, HTTP2, PHP 7 and the Jetpack plugin. You also get access to WordPress Expert Support 24/7.
Migrating to DreamPress
The WordPress Migration Service costs $99 and promises to seamlessly move your WordPress installation over to your new hosting without downtime. It costs $99 which I think is a bit expensive considering you are also moving your hosting to this company. It could be good value though if you have lots of content and plugins that would make your site a real hassle to move and might require paid plugins to get the job done anyways.
A .com domain is $11.99 for the first year and slightly more after that, which is great considering that the Whois Privacy is free.
They only accept credit and debit cards and that is a slight drawback. The 30-day money back guarantee is OK. The limiting of how many websites you can host is another drawback. Or at least it could be if you have multiple sites.
The performance features of the DreamPress plans are nice and will help your sites load fast with features like Brotli compression, HTTP/2 and the Nginx web server. Your site will also get HTTPS by default. If you outgrow your DreamPress plan you can upgrade with a simple click of the mouse unless you are already hosted with the most powerful plan.
Dreamhost states that this plan is suitable for websites with around 60.000 monthly visitors. You get the premium version of the Jetpack plugin which has a value of $299/year and you get 5 calls/mo to your own Concierge Phone Support if needed! 1-click install of Woo Commerce is an optional extra. Also, you get a staging site that you can use for testing changes to your WordPress site before making them live.
