The total cost of building a WordPress website will vary depending on your usage and the instance types you select for the web server and database instance. Using the default configuration recommended in this guide, it will typically cost $450/month to host the WordPress site. This cost reflects the minimum resources recommended for a production ready WordPress workload, with only one active web server and a separate Amazon RDS MySQL database instance. The total cost may increase if you use Auto Scaling to increase the number of web server instances in the event of increased traffic to your WordPress site (approximately $75/month for each additional web server assuming that the web server is active for the entire month).
