  • Flywheel is designed specifically for freelancers, creative agencies, and designers

Flywheel hosting:

Name.com hosting:

  • WordPress


Name.com has shared plans starting at $4.99/month. On the other hand, Flywheel’s cheapest plan, the ‘Tiny’ plan, costs $15.00/month.


Flywheel is the clear winner, in our opinion. There are many hosts that can do the same or more than Name.com, and for less money. On the other hand, Flywheel is one of the best WordPress hosts available. Flywheel outperforms Name.com in just about every category. One of the downsides for Flywheel, however, is that they only offer one kind of hosting, but it’s not like Name.com has a wide-range of plans either.
