Flywheel Cloud Platform

Introducing Flywheel's new Cloud Platform

We've created the hosting platform of your dreams!

Underneath our well-designed dashboard, there’s a lot of technical stuff happening to keep your WordPress sites fast, secure, and running smoothly. Over the last several months, we’ve put a lot into building the next era of WordPress hosting. We’ve upgraded the infrastructure, fine-tuned the architecture, and formed a rock-solid partnership with Google Cloud to create a new powerhouse platform that is more scalable, more resilient, and faster than ever.

We couldn't possibly be more thrilled to introduce you to the best managed WordPress hosting experience in the world: Flywheel's new Cloud Platform!

Powered by

Google Cloud Platform

We've partnered with GCP to provide enterprise-grade infrastructure for every one of our customers!

New Cloud Platform features

It's managed WordPress hosting, reinvented!

    Auto-healing technology

    Each WordPress site on our platform will heal itself in the event of any service failure. As an example: If there are issues with PHP, your site won’t go down... it’ll just fix itself!

    Instant-scaling technology

    You shouldn’t be punished when your success means spikes in traffic! Now, scaling your site to millions of visitors happens instantly. There’s no need for downtime or a migration to more hardware!

    Coming soon!

    Our new caching technology, FlyCache, takes into account the most popular WordPress themes and plugins to make sure your pages are cached (or not cached) correctly – with no work from you!

    Staging included on all plans

    On our classic platform, we only offered staging sites on Personal plans and above. Starting today, any customer on our new cloud platform will have access to our staging feature – even Tiny plans!


    If your site’s growing and every visit is mission-critical, our new platform offers the ability for full redundancy and high-availability. (Please contact your account manager or hit up our sales team to learn more!)

    Coming soon!
    Free CDN on all plans

    Soon, all new hosting plans will include our new global Content Delivery Network (CDN) for free, and we'll update the CDN offering for existing customers so they get the latest and greatest!

Does this mean Flywheel is going to raise prices?

We have no plans to raise pricing for existing subscriptions and there is zero charge to do the upgrade. :)

So, is this "Shared hosting" now!?

Flywheel’s new Cloud Platform is not shared hosting! The IP addresses (load balancers) are shared, but each WordPress site has its own resources. (This means that even bulk plan sites won’t share resources!)

Will my site be better/faster/stronger?

Your site will likely be noticeably faster due to upgraded PHP, our new FlyCache technology, and our totally rebuilt infrastructure that leverages Google Cloud's global network. Our uptime on the new platform is also incredible due to auto-healing technology (you're lookin' at 99.9%)!

How does Flywheel's cloud platform differ from other hosts who use GCP?

Our infrastructure is superior in many, many ways. It offers better scalability for all of our customers, and no sites share resources! Plus, the entire thing is tuned specifically for WordPress, so you’ll be able to deliver a digital experience unlike any other.

Does every customer have to upgrade to the new platform?

Yes! The upgrade is totally free and will be a smooth and straightforward process. We’ll keep you in the loop every step of the way, but trust us: you’re going to LOVE IT!

Will the dashboard look different?

Not really! We adore our dashboard’s UI and didn’t need to do much; basically, all the innovation and improvements are within the infrastructure (or ‘under the hood,’ so to speak).
