Hierarchy of WordPress Hosting Decisions

How do you make a decision about where to host your WordPress site?

If it's just about the money, you can always go for WordPress.com—where things start at $0. But over time you may decide it's right to move. So what's next? And does your site only move once? If you're like me, your site may move 2 or 3 times before it comes to a rest.

Here's an infographic that looks at the hierarchy of needs (ala Maslow) when it comes to decisions about WordPress hosting.

My site is currently hosted at WP Engine, after making stops at GoDaddy (years ago, seriously, years – don't hold it against me, I was young), MediaTemple (for multiple years), and Page.ly (for almost a year).

Where is your site in the journey?
