Move your site to a WordPress Cloud Hosting Plan

Easy step by step instructions to create or move your site to wordpress cloud hosting.

I created this site in June 2010, on my Hostgator shared hosting account.

Last year I noticed that the site was slower to load, even with a small 253Kb home page:

hostgator shared web hosting slow loading

So I started to search for a faster wordpress hosting solution for my site:

It had to be:

Fast, because if your hosting server is slow, you're loosing visitors.

Secure with SSL, to be safe from hackers.

Inexpensive because I'm paying.

So, for several weeks, I read the web hosting reviews, the hosting plans tests results, I checked the sites listing the top 7,8,10 hosting services, I compared the hosting plans features and prices, and choose the best 3.
