A look at serverless WordPress

A look at serverless WordPress

These are the slides from a talk given at WordCamp Asia 2023.

Some of us love to manage servers. But for a lot of WordPress developers, servers are something we’d rather avoid. We’re happy to pay hosting providers, so we don’t have to worry about it.

WordPress hosting doesn’t remove all your hosting headaches. You still have to worry about scaling. You’re often overpaying for hosting because you have to worry about the worst-case scenario.

Well, that’s what serverless WordPress tries to solve. With serverless WordPress, you only pay for what you use. Meanwhile, you get an infrastructure that can scale from handling zero traffic to thousands in seconds.

This talk will go over serverless WordPress and how it works. You’ll learn how it differs from regular WordPress hosting with a traditional server setup and why it’s a game-changer for WooCommerce hosting. We’ll finish by going over tools and projects you can use to deploy your serverless WordPress site.
