HostWinds WordPress Hosting Review (2020): A Dark Horse?

Review summary: As far as budget WordPress hosts go, HostWinds is a respectable option.

Unfortunately, they disappoint on almost every other front, including how well their server handles traffic spikes, transparency, Live Chat support quality (yikes!), account management tools, security, and add-on services.
