Editorial Review

I absolutely LOVE WP Engine. I'm currently a client and I have been for over 4 years. When I first signed up, I was on this basic personal plan. If you are going to host Wordpress this company is definitely the way to go.

First of all, the support is fantastic. I've submitted tickets at all hours and consistently received replies quickly. Their support staff is nice, knowledgeable and quick to solve problems. You can email or live chat, and live chat support is always online. I've never had a support ticket go over 2-3 hours before being solved.

Second, site speed is LIGHTNING fast. I was initially running 3 concurrent sites on managed Wordpress hosts (WP Engine, Page.ly and MediaTemple), and the performance on my WPE install was by far the best. Even with the entry level plan, you get native caching. They also disallow WP plugins that slow down sites (here: https://wpengine.com/support/disallowed-plugins/). All in all, I have to say that in writing this review, that the WP site performance is the one point that they have down to an art.

Third, WP management. Backups are automatic and you can revert to a previous snapshot of your install in minutes. WP Engine will also upgrade you to the latest version of Wordpress automatically, and send you several notifications before doing the upgrade. They also install a set of functionality to help prevent hacking (like a login attempt counter / lockout after too many tries). The management dashboard is very simple to use, and you can migrate / copy a site with a few clicks. You also have a staging area automatically setup where you can try stuff out before pushing changes to your live site. They also add a WP Engine menu into the Wordpress install so you can do things like cache purging from the WP admin menu.

Finally, the first-time setup is easy to run through. Even with this starter plan, you can pick your server location (USA, Europe or Asia). The whole site setup takes less than 10 minutes. Billing is clear and simple - you can pay month-to-month or get a discount for prepaying for longer terms.

All in all, I give WP Engine a 5 star review for offering a hosting experience that I've yet seen to be matched by anyone else. They are an A+++ company that I would recommend to anyone looking at hosting a Wordpress site.
