In this video we go through the process of setting up a VPS with Hetzner Cloud. We use their basic VPS package with 2 vCPUS, 2GB of RAM and 40GB of NVMe storage. This is a great starter VPS for your projects that you can run for a very low price. We go through the process of setting up Litespeed cache with Cyberpanel to improve the performance of WordPress.
Hetzner is now available in the USA. Hetzner is a reliable VPS Hosting with fast servers, great hardware specs and very cheap prices. It was only available in Europe, where it has been hugely popular – but now the company has decided to make it available to the American Market.

The speeds we are seeing in Google Pagespeed Insights are close to the best we’ve seen at this price point!
