Digital Ocean Is a Gorgeous VPS Host
Hosting companies aren't exactly known for being user friendly. Digital Ocean has changed the VPS hosting game by offering ridiculously cheap hosting, coupled with a gorgeous and simple to use user interface.
A VPS server starts at $5 and using the built in tools, you can automatically configure it as a LAMP stack, Wordpress host, or a variety of other pre-built images.
All of the Digital Ocean VPS's are SSD based as well.
