Easy to deploy Amazon service that supports Wordpress

We used Amazon services for our web app, but when I was tasked with creating a new version of the local newspaper website with WordPress, I discovered LightSail. Once set up, it created a very basic WordPress installation. Securing it and dealing with caching was also easy as all of my colleagues were already familiar with Amazon's services. Bottom line is, if you want a WordPress website and you want to run it on Amazon servers, take a look at LightSail - it works great!

Pros

The service is easier to set up for someone just starting with Amazon hosting than their other services. I loved how fast LightSail was. It increased the performance of my WordPress setup and made the pages load much faster.

Cons

It is not a beginner's thing. If you want a simple WordPress and you don't want to have to write a line of code, a shared hosting is a better option.

Reasons for Switching to Lightsail

All of our services were on Amazon servers and we decided it was time to move on from the shared hosting for that particular website.
