I host all of my WordPress websites with WP Engine, they are by far the most reliable website host I have used for any project.
Having that chat with a real person who could answer all the technical questions is what sealed the deal for me. I signed up and within 24 hours I had transferred all of my websites over. Being new to the system I had a small issue trying to get something set up, so I got straight on to live chat support who got the issue sorted within 5 minutes! I?ve had a few more support requests over the past 12 months, all of which have been sorted straight away. WP Engine support is by far the most impressive I have experienced from any web hosting company.
WP Engine is one of the most popular managed WordPress hosting providers in the world. Here are some of the best features:
Superior Support ? Your website is covered by a team of rigorously-trained WordPress experts available around the clock to ensure your website is running smoothly.
Real-Time security threat detection ? Their proprietary, adaptable intrusion detection and prevention system dynamically detects and blocks malicious behaviour.
Staging Sites ? A staging site is a test environment where you can test your website, track/fix bugs and make modifications without interrupting your production website. Really handy for me to create and test a site before making it live.
Daily backup and security system that scans and protects your website against malware and attackers. Plus, if something goes wrong, you can easily restore to previous snapshots with only 1 mouse click.
Evercache ? a caching technology for maximised speed and scalability that?s designed by WP Engine.
Nothing in life is perfect and there are always going to be some cons of the website hosting packages available. Some people see the bandwidth limitations on WP Engine hosting packages as a downside, but let?s be real here, although we all want thousands of visitors to our small business websites each day, you?re not going to reach that straight away. so the smaller plans are more than enough to get you started online.
Most of you will benefit from the Personal plan, which is the best solution if you compare the price vs performance. The majority of you will also only require the one website. However, if you want to host more than one website, or even dozens of websites you?ll need to get at least the Business plan. These plans are significantly more expensive, but you?ll get some pretty cool additional services like phone support, GeoIP and WordPress Multisites.
I build websites for a living so I need to find reputable companies to partner with that offer quality services. WP Engine is working out to be the best website hosting for me, so I am confident it will work for you.
