Cloud Hosting (DigitalOcean + ServerPilot) Vs Shared Hosting
This is probably a ridiculous question and I should probably finish watching Jesse's Modern Wordpress Workflow Course before posting.
However, I'm quite curious to see the comparison between a setup with Cloud Hosting compared with shared hosting.
If we use DigitalOcean and ServerPilot as an example, if you were to purchase the two popular packages you would be looking at an annual cost of around $240.00. If we looked at a Shared Hosting package such as SiteGround's GrowBig. We would look at paying an annual cost of $210.00 after Year One.
Correct me if I have misunderstood, but using the above example. The Cloud Hosting option seems like a Bargain!
I was just interested in seeing what people used for their projects, it seems Cloud Hosting would make more business sense?

Digital ocean crushes Siteground in so many ways. There is not much comparison having heavily used them both. I don't use ServerPilot as I don't see much reason to.
