Why you should choose WP Bolt if you’re looking for a Flywheel alternative

Flywheel was acquired by WP Engine in 2019, although it is still mostly independent of WP Engine.

Both Flywheel and WP Bolt offer Managed WordPress Hosting services for agencies. However, Flywheel uses an older-style model of web hosting, where customers share their servers with other customers, similar to Bluehost and GoDaddy. WP Bolt, on the other hand, uses the latest Virtual Private Server (VPS) technology to give each customer their own private server to run their WordPress sites.

WP Bolt offers customers the choice of 4 of the leading cloud providers (DigitalOcean, UpCloud, Vultr and Linode), and provides each customer with their own Virtual Private Server (VPS) in their chosen data center.

No Artificial Limits on Visitors

WP Bolt has no artificial limits on the number of visitors. On the other hand, Flywheel’s pricing is based on the number of visitors that your site receives and this can easily result in overages or requests to upgrade to larger plans when you otherwise wouldn’t need to.

In addition to visitor limits, Flywheel has very small bandwidth allowances, starting at a paltry 20GB of monthly bandwidth on their Tiny plan that costs $15 per month or 50GB bandwidth on their Starter plan at $30 per month. In comparison, WP Bolt’s Starter plan includes 1TB – a whopping 50x more than Flywheel.

E-Mail Hosting is Included

Flywheel doesn’t allow you to receive email at the domains that you host on servers that you manage with their software. You’ll need to arrange your email hosting separately with a third-party service like Google Workspace, Office 365 or Fastmail to get email hosting. This means a second provider to pay separately, and potentially a second billing relationship to manage (Flywheel and your email hosting provider)

WP Bolt, on the other hand, allows you to host your company’s email on your server at no extra charge. Removing yet another cost and headache of managing different relationships for different services.

We Give You More Space

The entry-level plan from Flywheel only has 5GB of disk space. You might quickly find yourself struggling with that limit if you have a site with a lot of images, video or other media (eg podcast sites, membership sites, WooCommerce stores). Our smallest plan has 25Gb of disk space, 5x more than what Flywheel offers.
