Wordpress Migration on AWS EC2
Migration of Wordpress from Shared Hosting to AWS EC2
If you want to host a simple WordPress website, then AWS is not the best option for you; managed hosting providers or shared hosting are cheaper and easier to use. There are even managed cloud hosting providers in the market to host simple WordPress websites.
Running WordPress in a VM on Amazon’s AWS Cloud Platform allows you to use the full power of the cloud.
The main reason why you should host WordPress on AWS is because you’re developing a website that you predict will grow in size and complexity over time, and you require a platform built with the infrastructure that your website will require as it grows.
Here are 3 unique benefits of Amazon EC2 and How your business can benefit from utilizing Amazon’s virtual server hosting platform for WordPress:
- Complete Control with Ease of Access
- Highly Scalable and Available Environment
Often reserved for larger projects, Amazon Web Services is a powerful cloud computing platform that allows anyone to harness the power of Amazon’s superior infrastructure on a pay as you go basis.
Please note that setting up a custom WordPress install on Amazon web services is a very technical and complicated process.
