If you run a business with a website, you probably don’t want to think about the technical details of server hosting. You just want to know that your site is up and running, and that when it’s not, it gets fixed quickly.
For many website owners today, WordPress is their CMS of choice (Content Management System). It’s easy to use, customizable and extensible without being overly complex or difficult to work with. This makes it great for businesses of all sizes because even if you’re just getting started with a small blog or website—or if you’ve been using WordPress for years—there are still plenty of ways you can improve your experience as a webmaster by keeping an eye on your WordPress host’s hardware setup and configuration options.
However, some things aren’t so easy when it comes to hosting and maintaining a WordPress site online: specifically, planning for growth (and dealing with failure) when using cloud-based solutions like AWS S3 buckets or Google Cloud Storage buckets as persistent storage mechanisms for your data files (WordPress core files + plugins + themes). Isolating all those web assets from other websites is a difficult task in most types of hosting environment. Even in some cases they are logically isolated but not totally preventable from accidental misuse or hacking as they are technically using same underlying hardware and encryption technology.
These are where the advantage of the Virtual Private Cloud comes in.
Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) is a virtual network of isolated resources in the AWS cloud.
VPCs are logically isolated from other virtual networks in AWS and from your on-premises network. You can use these resources to create your own private, isolated section of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud to run your applications.
VPC closely resembles an on-premises network. You can use it to host your WordPress instance, WordPress plugins, and all associated assets. You can easily connect it to your corporate data center over industry-standard encrypted IPsec hardware VPN connections.
Now that we’ve covered all the benefits of WordPress hosting in VPC, you can start building and deploying your WordPress website on AWS infrastructure today. We hope this article has helped you understand how to run WordPress in a more secure and scalable environment in AWS with VPC.
