Suggestions for a US-based host that offers MANAGED VPS and/or Dedicated servers?
I've just started developing my first website using the BuddyBoss Platform and various other plugins for WordPress, and have been on Vultr HF with RunCloud for a few months now. But I just discovered this world of smaller, more powerful, more affordable hosts through this enormously informative article (https://www.webwhim.co.uk/how-to-select-a-wordpress-hosting-provider/) and am starting to explore the options.
They make a very strong case for MechanicWeb, but I'm curious as to which other hosts are comparable.
It is crucial for me that they will provide sysadmin/server management services for me, as I don't have the skill or time to figure these things out. I've come across all sorts of hosts (RackNerd, HostCram, Nexus Bytes, etc...) by looking through the forums here as well as the LowEndBox "Best" articles. But it appears that most of these simply offer the hardware.
The bulk of my audience will be in Latin America, and perhaps Asia and Africa in the future, so I'd like to have the data center in Los Angeles or Dallas.
I'm currently developing the site, so don't need anything beyond a small shared plan right now. But I'd probably launch the site with a full VPS and I expect I'll need to scale it up to a full dedicated server eventually to handle a large user base and a lot of dynamic data. It seems like AMD Ryzen is the best bet, with 5950X being the top processor at the moment, but I'd be open to other options if the performance/price is good.
Can anyone recommend any other hosts that meet these criteria?
Feel free to ask any questions if I have overlooked anything important. Thanks!
