Why You Should Host Your WordPress Website On EC2

Using EC2 for a WordPress website makes sense. EC2 offers a lot of benefits over using other shared hosting providers or self-hosting options. Let's take a look at a couple of those benefits.

Unlike other shared hosting providers, (Eg. Host Gator or GoDaddy), EC2 offers web admins their own virtual private server. This can be both a blessing and a curse. Using your own VPS offers better security and flexibility. The downside is that you must ensure that your VPS is updated regularly and configured properly.

Using an EC2 instance also offers an easier avenue to scale a WordPress website as it grows. As websites acquire new leads and visitors, it will require more resources to handle new traffic. Scaling an EC2 instance is as easy as moving an instance type to another tier. In less than 5 minutes, an EC2 VPS can be scaled to include more processing power.

Hosting a WordPress website in the AWS environment also means it is much easier to integrate other AWS resources with it. Instead of self-hosting a MySQL database in the VPS instance, the WordPress database can be hosted with AWS RDS. Likewise, static assets, like blog post images, can be offloaded to AWS S3.
