In most cases this happens, a non-technical blogger feels unhappy, dissatisfied and helpless. Now if he upgrades the plan, he will have to pay a lot of money for it.

If your answer is "yes", then today I am going to tell you its solution. One way in which you can set up a super-fast hosting server for your WordPress site in less money.

Best Server Setup Guide 2019 for WordPress Website
You will need a little bit of coding knowledge for the way I am telling you how to set up a superfast server. Only then you will be able to do server configured correctly.

Otherwise, you will have to hire a developer to set up the server. You can hire me I also do the work of developing.

# 1 Fastest Hosting

Talking about performance, the hosting of Google Cloud and Amazon AWS is at the top, but the price of their plans is very high.

Therefore, we will choose a service provider that is comparable to them, but their plan price is cheap. Like,

  • DigitalOcean
  • Linode
  • Vultr

These three provide low-cost lighting fast cloud hosting servers. I use DigitalOcean's server. Because it is also the data center in India. Which makes the site load fast in India.

If you are a Hindi blogger then I would also advise you to host the site on DigitalOcean Server. You can read the DigitalOcean Hosting Review 2019 post to know more about it.

If you want, CloudWays can also take its Managed Server. But its price will be almost double. So it is better that we do manual setup & configure DO Server and install WordPress.

#2. Server configuration

There are many ways to set up a server for WordPress on Un-managed server and DigitalOcean cloud hosting, such as,

Which Linux to choose? (Ubuntu, CentOS or someone else)
Now setup LEMP (Nginx) with Linux or LAMP (Apache)?
According to me it is better to run WordPress with Nginx (LEMP stack) on the Ubuntu server. Because Nginx software is much faster than Apache.

# 3. Caching

After setup of the server comes the Cache plugin, then I would advise you to use Server Cache (FastCGI Cache) without using any cache plugin.

Because FastCGI is much faster than the cache plugin. I have already told about this,

How to setup FastCGI Cache - Complete Guide in Hindi
If you do not want to use FastCGI Cache then I would recommend you to use the WP-Rocket cache plugin. Because it is better than all other cache plugins.

You can also use free cache plugins like WP Super Cache, W3 Total Cache or Fastest Cache, but all of them face some issue.

Also, I would suggest enabling the Opcode Cache to make PHP performance fast. After this, you do not need Varnish, Redis, Memcached.

# 4. Themes

If you are talking about the fastest WordPress themes then I would recommend you use StudioPress and MyThemeShop themes. Because it is the fastest loading and SEO optimized.

The StudioPress Framework is the most commonly used WordPress site worldwide. Even today it remains at the 1st position for the WordPress blog.

# 5. Cdn

After all this you need the best CDN provider. I will suggest two CDNs (content delivery network).

  • Cloudflare (Free)
  • KeyCDN (Paid)

Both of these provide the best service. Now you can decide whether to use free CDN or Premium.


After this it comes to Http and https, then https has become necessary for blog and website.

If you have a budget then you can take Godaddy SSL. Otherwise, I would recommend you to use Let's Encrypt SSL or Cloudflare Flexible SSL.

If you enable https correctly then it will have a slight effect on the speed of your site, if set up incorrectly, the speed of the site can be slower.

# 7. Managed Hosting

If you do not want to set up the server manually then I would recommend you use Managed WordPress Hosting. Because in this you get a previously optimized server.

You will not need to do anything in the name of the setup. For this, you can choose one of the following tops managed WordPress hosting.

  • Kinsta
  • WP Engine
  • CloudWays
  • KnownHost
  • Siteground

All of them have good service and performance but their price is very high. If you have so much budget then this is the best for you.

# 8. Optimization

What a WordPress site has to optimize in order to speed up a WordPress site. Such as Database optimizing, Database Clean up, Extra Script & CSS optimizing, etc.

If your current hosting is not causing any problems, I suggest you stick to it. When you have a problem, you can migrate your site to one of these hosting servers.
