Flywheel

Flywheel is particularly well-suited for hands-on WordPress managed hosting. It's also perfect for developers who build site's locally on Local and then want an effortless way to import them into their managed hosting environment. Flywheel particularly excels in scenarios where a customer needs managed. WordPress hosting that handles daily backups and offers test and live environments for a reasonable price.

Liquid Web

Liquid Web is suitable for serious users who have high end web applications or critical business oriented websites. cPanel and WHM comes out of the box with almost every server you buy. And if you don't have time to manage your own server, Liquid Web will suit you well. Their support is awesome. They help beyond the scope of the support. I had to migrate almost 25 big sites to another Liquid Web server, the support guys made it so easy for me.

Cons

Flywheel

  • I'd like to see an option for Flywheel to provide email hosting for custom domains
  • A sandbox feature to preview new sites for customers
Jennifer Blair | TrustRadius Reviewer

Liquid Web

  • The tutorial area is excellent, but perhaps they could add video tutorial.
  • Chat conversations should be added automatically to the client portal.

Alternatives Considered

Flywheel

I select Flywheel to host my site and my clients' sites because of how fast and reliable the service is. The tools are incredible and their local site program, Local, is head and shoulders above the competition. I tried Kinsta's program, but it felt slow and old compared to Local. Flywheel is powerful and dead-simple to use.

Liquid Web

We evaluated Kinsta and WPEngine. Both offer great platforms but the lack of solid phone support and the substantial difference in server resource allocation made Liquid Web a clear winner.

Liquid Web

  • Liquid-Web has made it easier for me to take my focus away from handling constant server issues to being able to focus on my actual job in managing our websites. While there may not be a concrete number for this scenario, being able to perform my tasks more efficiently definitely helps company growth in the long run.
