Searching for the best WordPress hosting for agencies to host your clients’ websites?
If you want to build recurring revenue for your agency, it’s a great idea to set up ongoing agreements to host your clients’ sites, rather than just turning over their sites and ending the relationships right there.
But that adds another important decision to your plate — how do you find the right hosting solution for your client websites?
There are some important hosting features that apply to both individuals and agencies. No matter if you’re hosting your own websites or your clients’ sites, you want a host that offers fast performance, reliable uptime, quality support, etc. Those are no-brainers in any hosting comparison.

But before I get to the features, I want to share a quick note:
Flywheel were acquired by WP Engine in 2019. Since that acquisition, their
