Why you should choose WP Bolt if you’re looking for a RunCloud alternative
Both RunCloud and WP Bolt offer you the ability to have your own Managed WordPress VPS Hosting server.
RunCloud is only the software to manage the server, and you’ll need to set up an account with a VPS provider and manage that separate billing relationship, as well as pay RunCloud’s monthly fee of $8-$45 per month.
On the other hand, 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 as part of the total monthly fee that you pay us. No need to manage two billing relationships.
No Restrictions on Important Features like Team Access or WordPress Staging Sites
WP Bolt allows you to add unlimited team members to your account to manage your sites and servers. You can also deploy a staging site for each WordPress site that you host on your server.
RunCloud restricts it to just 1 Staging site on their Basic plan, 10 on their Pro plan. For multiple users to be able to access your RunCloud account, they restrict this functionality to their Business plan, which is $45 per month.
RunCloud charges a fee for their software between $8-45 per month, and then you still need to pay separately to your chosen VPS hosting provider for the actual server.
WP Bolt makes it easy. One bill, one provider, all-inclusive pricing for up to 20 sites per server. No restrictions on the features that you can use depending on the plan size that you pick.
E-Mail Hosting is Included
RunCloud 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 go separately to a third-party service like Google Workspace, Office 365 or Fastmail to get email hosting. This means a third provider to pay separately, and a third billing relationship to manage (RunCloud, VPS hosting provider and Email hosting provider)
WP Bolt, on the other hand, allows you to host your company’s email on your server. Removing yet another headache of managing different relationships for different services.
DNS Hosting is Included
RunCloud doesn’t include DNS hosting. You have to manually configure it with your chosen VPS hosting provider, or find a third-party DNS hosting service.
WP Bolt automatically configures DNS hosting for your domain as you add it to your WordPress VPS server, and allows you to manage your DNS records from inside your WP Bolt account.
