Flywheel is another popular managed WordPress host that markets itself primarily towards creative freelancers and agencies, though anyone can use and benefit from it. Still, if you are using WordPress and Elementor to build websites for clients, Flywheel does have some nice features to make your life easier.
All of Flywheel’s plans come with:
- Server-level caching
- Built-in CDN powered by Fastly
- Free/easy SSL certificates
- Automatic WordPress updates
- Automatic daily backups
- Staging sites
- 24/7/365 live chat support (and phone support on higher-tier plans)
If you’re building websites for clients, you’ll also benefit from features such as:
- Option to white-label the hosting dashboard to resell hosting to your clients using your own branding
- Easy billing transfer to clients
- A “tagging” feature to help you organize sites in your dashboard
- “Blueprints” to help you quickly create new sites from templates – for example, you could save Elementor and the Hello theme as a “blueprint” to quickly spin up new Elementor sites
Flywheel’s plans start at $15 per month, but that plan only supports up to 5,000 visits. For 25,000 visits, you’ll pay $30 per month.
Note – Flywheel was acquired by WP Engine in 2019. However, Flywheel is still a separate company and, while the prices are now virtually identical, Flywheel uses different infrastructure and has a different feature list.
