Determining Your Website
WP Bubble hosting is not a one-size-fits-all.

When starting out, by default, we assume that you are a blogger, which should be the most common type of website.
While bloggers could likely switch to the smallest plan, which is called a Static plan. This plan was designed for a basic WordPress install, with a basic theme that is not too advanced, and less than 10 plugins or so. This plan includes 125 MB SSD, 1 CPU core, and 256 MB of memory, which is the recommended amount that can run a WordPress installatoin. Your audience might be friends and family or a small following. You can definitely blog on this plan, though it was designed for more static websites with pages and posts that do not change very often. It is highly recommended that once you complete your website, you enabled Cloudflare to cache your website.

If you are a blogger with an audience, have around 10-15 plugins, and upload at least one or two photos, including a featured image per blog post, than this plan was definitely designed for you.
The Startup plan is for more established bloggers or small businesses with a medium to large following or an average of a few customers per day. This plan allows for up to 1 GB of RAM, 1 CPU core power, and 500 MB SSD. This is usually the average plan provided on most web hosts. If you are running a very small e-commerce store or blog quite often, this plan would be recommended for you.
