Digital Ocean is a great web hosting solution for almost any WordPress site with an easy to use interface and a very low cost to the end user. They also use fast SSD drives and you can quickly spin up a new droplet (their fancy name for a vps server) in just a few minutes.
I just updated WordPress, theme and plugins to the latest and greatest 3.8.1 version of Wordpress. Love the new admin panel. I’ve been bad about neglecting the site because I’m usually busy doing paid work, looking for new jobs/clients, learning new things and once in awhile relaxing and/or getting away from the computer for awhile.
