This tutorial uses a combination of a Vultr high frequency cloud VPS, Plesk control panel (free version) and Cloudflare (free version) to deliver a great result.
If you’ve ever wanted to try setting up your own VPS in the cloud, this is a great method. I’ve tried several other self managed VPS providers, and I have to say Vultr has been my favourite experience to date.
The key to making this simple was combining the Vultr cloud server with the free Plesk control panel – this gives us a user friendly interface to manage our server. Using Cloudflare as our DNS and SSL has the bonus of giving us a nice free content delivery network, with some speed optimization tweaks too.
Finally, Plesk allows us an easy 1-click WordPress install, with nginx caching easily setup too!
If you’ve ever got tired of using shared hosting and wanted to try managing your own cloud server, this is a fairly simple way to get started.
Definitely enjoyed making this one!
