Best hosting suggestions

I have a couple different domain names. I have a couple self hosted ones on go daddy and google (for gsuite) and have one on AWS which has a ton of flexibility but feels overwhelming sometimes. What set ups do others have for their business? I don't need much more than an basic landing page with product and company info initially. Thoughts?

@marius_price Thanks! I'll check it out. Do you know if there is a bandwidth limit within that?

@marius_price @mrbobaleena 1000GB i never reached that even on big product product launches :)

For multiple sites I do like the flexibility of GoDaddy since you can host the website on multiple providers (I use Wordpress and Squarespace simultaneously). What are your main goals? Are you looking for straight search engine results, are you trying to collect leads and interact with potential customers, publish regular content, etc.?

@kristinides At this stage, it is just to host the company site and landing page. Not really looking to host much content other than how ton and maybe the occasional blog post. One thing that i have found to be an issue on private hosting, is the confidence to know that things are backed up in case of an failure or accidental deletion.

@mrbobaleena Ah yes version control. Wordpress is definitely the best bet for that as far as I know, but I have had to abandon them due to slowness even with increasing PHP memory. Just doing some searching at it looks like Squarespace as of 2020 doesn't have any way to restore from a point in time. Lame! I have heard good things about Wordpress + Blue Host or HostGator.

server4you.com offers rather cheap and decent VPSs where you can have Plesk or cPanel if you wish
