What is WP.land ?
WP.land is a hosting service for WordPress where you can host your site. You don’t need to have any technical knowledge you just add the site and change the nameserver for the domain and you are set. The service is addressed for the clients that are not technic and don’t want to lose time setting WordPress from the cPanel account.
The Basic plan with 10GB off space is starting with 6$ for the yearly price. 10 GB is more than enough to have your WordPress site. I have more than 5 sites with hundred articles and not using more than 5 GB.
What I especially like is the fact that they are handling the WordPress updates so the site would be up to date, another interesting feature is the backup and the security. With such features you only need to focus on writhing.
The most important aspect when it comes to hosting your site is the speed and uptime. For a better user experience and SEO increase the site load speed test is very important. I have done a series off tests comparing a site http://veggiesville.com/ that I have hosted on the WP.land and bitdoze.com. Both have the same theme the default one so the test be relevant.
bitdoze.com is hosted on an digitalocean VPS with NGINX and PHP7 so the site is loading very, very fast.
I have loaded the sites from Amsterdam and Dallas, below are the results:
Site hosted on WP.land:
loadimpact.com stres test
US vegis test:
The hosting is very fast and the tests from US are even faster than my digiatalocean VPS. As seen the stress test with 25 active sessions in same time the site hosted at WP.land did very well and the load time is ~500 ms which is very fast. I like the speed that WP.land is having.
