We're looking at launching a new site as a break from what we are working on at the moment. It would be based largely around wordpress, and while we were going to use standard hosting, we've noticed wordpress can have some issues with speed on it. Fixing this requires a lot of tweaking and customising themes to make sure all the calls are as efficient as possible. We've had an offer from a hoster we haven't used before who offers dedicated wordpress hosting. They are more expensive, but they say that their hosting is tuned for wordpress and can solve issues like speed, memory limits, or database connection limits. Has anyone used dedicated wordpress hosting, and does it actually provide a boost over a standard VPS? I'd just like a few more opinions before I put money into it.
