WP Engine is a managed WordPress hosting provider that emphasises on website speed and security.
Why we like WP Engine?
Here’s why we really like WP Engine:
1. Website security – WP Engine is the most secure WordPress hosting service provider. With a dedicated WordPress security team behind it, their platform’s enterprise-grade technology automates threat detection to block attacks from hacking your website and keep your website vulnerabilities up to date.
2. Staging sites – Many people felt that the pricing plans of WP Engine is relatively higher than most hosting companies. However, this is not true. WP Engine allows you to create staging sites and development sites where you can thoroughly test your site enhancements before you launch new capabilities on your live site. This makes WP Engine excellent for websites that provide a lot of users’ functionalities, e.g. educational sites, ecommerce sites, directory sites, etc.
WP Engine’s price plans are slightly more costly than most other hosting companies. However, if you consider the speed performance, security and developer’s tools, the price plans are actually value for money. We highly recommend WP Engine because of security and speed performance. If you are having a simple one-page corporate website that only provide company information, then you might find this costly. However, if you are running an ecommerce sites or a training site or providing directory services, then WP Engine is the platform you should use.
