Compare SlickStack With Other Stack Scripts

WordPress is the most popular CMS in the world, and has been for several years. This means that an entire ecosystem of services and infrastructure has grown around WordPress. The beautiful thing is that consumers now have many different options when it comes to hosting, themes, plugins, and even DevOps tools like SlickStack for setting up easy WordPress LEMP servers.

The below comparisons are not meant to be “which one is better” because it depends on your situation and goals. For many years, WordPress has held a “decisions, not options” philosophy meaning that best practices should typically be implemented to ensure quality and consistency, instead of giving end users too many options. This philosophy is deeply held by SlickStack, perhaps even more than WordPress Core team at this point. But if you are a super geeky computer engineer, you might like having more “options” to play around with.

What are the main alternatives to SlickStack? Please see below list and click for a comparison table.
