Best speed and backup solution for a WordPress site

Rohit is looking for how to achieve the best speed for a WordPress site, with a good backup solution, and within a budget of $50/month. This is a well optimized WordPress site on a LiteSpeed server with LScache. The audience is mainly from the US with some from Canada and the UK. He asks what would be the best solutions for performance (load time including TTFB) and automated backups with easy accessibility? He's currently using semi-dedicated (shared) hosting with high resource limits and Softaculuous auto remote backup to Google Drive. TTFB tends to be within 150 to 250ms across the US. Overall performance is satisfactory. However, he's wondering if there are significantly better performance and backup options available for the same budget. Under consideration would be paid CloudFlare plans (or any other CDN such as, or a server with AMD 7xxx processor, etc. He asks for opinions on what would be the best options for this budget? There are already some suggestions in the thread, discussing options like a better hosting plan or a VPS, and different backup solutions, but how would you go about creating this sort of setup?

How often do you receive an email from someone offering to fix your SEO and put you at the top of Google? Many of us will have received one (or many) of these, and a large percentage of them hardly go into any detail about how they plan to achieve this massive promotion up the Google ranking ladder, but would love to get you on a call to discuss the options. Some even ask you to reply with your website URL, as if they've not even done any research and don't actually know who they're approaching. Then, once in a while, the email that arrives is the opposite of the normal pattern, starting out by giving a price for the work and providing a huge list of tasks that will be performed for you each month. WHTer HyperVMart received such an email recently and has posted this monthly task list at the start of his thread, and asks if the offer is worth the price being quoted. For those of you experienced in SEO, can you pick this list apart and actually put a value on it?
