    I’m not just talking about stack script for setting up LEMP. I mean what do you think for the entire technology stack is best for WordPress speed, security, and everything.

    What if the price was no problem? And, what if cheapest price?

    IMO

    – NameSilo or Cloudflare for registrar
    – Cloudflare (Anycast DNS)
    – KVM cloud server with NVMe SSD drive
    – free OpenSSL so no worries about renewing Let’s Encrypt
    – LEMP stack (Ubuntu LTS, Nginx, MySQL, PHP-FPM)
    – Redis or Memcached for object cache
    – FastCGI Cache for page cache
    – lightweight WP theme and no page builder plugins

    And a managed remote database server from DigitalOcean or other good provider if you have any concern about using a local database.

    This is the best tech for an amazing price like $5-8/month for the server and ~$15/month extra maybe if you are going to need a managed database server too.

    KVM cloud server with NVMe SSD drive

    KVM servers are great but the provider still matters a lot, if they are a good quality datacenter with proper management and hardware.

    SSD drives are amazing but they also need to be swapped out for new ones regularly.

    Yes and no… not so much an urgent concern these days, as long as the datacenter keeps track of hardware usage and lifetimes. But SSD problems are harder to predict without careful software monitoring, so they can crash without warning.

    But yah, having a responsible cloud provider is important.

    Good read

    “best” WP stack is pretty relative to your situation, isn’t it?

    The best stack is the stack you have the most experience with and can manage and customize to achieve whatever you are trying to do.

    But if we are talking “fastest” stack so maybe different.

    Cloudflare + Vultr + SlickStack

    choose the Vultr optimized CPU with NVMe SSD drives, quite good

    some new trend every few years, but mostly ignoring what the average website owner can handle maintaining with cheap outsourced customer support

    its why cPanel never died.

    people want to login and play around with the web design on their own

    Wix and Weebly type of stuff will keep growing better and more popular but there will always be demand from activists for open source solution.

    well, This guy is still pushing Headless WordPress in 2023:

    https://aleksbasara.co/post/headless-wordpress/

    I feel like many guys who were pushing this 5 years ago have mostly moved on to static builders and JS frameworks.

    SlickStack changed from Redis to Memcached for simpler object caching

    SlickStack has ditched Redis for Memcached object caching

    After you’ve been in the web hosting or web design game for many years, you grow older, you have a family or other hobbies… you really start cherishing stability and easiness (and free/cheap) so that is the advantage with SlickStack I think

    Instead of jumping around different providers.

    I guess you can do this for WordOps and Webinoly also. All of them are going to work fine in any Ubuntu server anywhere

    No license, no API key, no proprietary stuff to learn, no business relationship you have to maintain… it’s extending the advantages that WordPress has already.
