“Best WP host I've used”
Reviewed

I've worked with 10 different hosts over the years and WP Engine is by far the best. They are a little bit more pricey but your time is valuable. You don't want to spend time stressing about server updates, downtime or backups. WP Engine makes it SUPER easy and I use them for all my clients. Highly recommended!

“Superstounding!”

Working with Zach was terrific. He did everything he possibly can over chat and fixed so many things. He was very patient and calm. I felt like i was working with a friend who has me covered.

“The ultimate wordpress host”

WPEngine is by far the best host for a wordpress site, and I've tried more than a few.
Everything you need to build and run a wp site is made simple and easy.
Support is out of this world, outstanding on every level.
I'll never use another host for wp, got over 10 sites already, planning to build a few more very soon

“Excellent Support from the WP Engine team”
Reviewed

I had an issue with the appearance of my website today - which could have become a minefield of technical issues to investigate. I contacted WP Engine via text chat who looked at the error log, asked some questions, then suggested restoring to a previous back-up. Back-up is part of their service so they initiated the process and the site Show more

“Reliable WordPress hosting supported by a knowledgable staff.”
Reviewed

My first experience with WP Engine was through an employer and it was a blessing. Since then I've been using them for all my development needs. The process of building a website for one of my clients and then handing it off through WP Engine's system is super easy. The support team has always been friendly, knowledgeable and eager to Show more

“Nobody does it better!”

They are always the same. Great, fast, smart service no matter the issue. And WPE is not just for the big boys and girls. It's perfect for solopreneurs, who have NO time to waste with poor server performance and bad support.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed

I'm using WPEngine for more than 10 of my wordpress sites and barely have any problems at all. The support is fantastic, they've helped me whenever I needed assistance with anything. One thing I really like is that they've got free SSL certificates, unlike some companies that charge you for it.

“Chat unavailabe most of the time”
Reviewed

While I'm a number one fan of WP Engine hosting, and I mean that sincerely, the online chat support continues to appear having technical difficulties. When I call - I get no response. It keeps ringing and nobody picks up. I prefer the chat to detail complex issues.

“Hosting services + customer support are 10/10”
Reviewed

We've got 2 websites with WPEngine at the moment, both for our business. From a business point of view, they are great to work with, but for individual use and smaller companies, I'm not so sure it would be affordable. They're not too expensive, but it pays off if the website itself brings you money too in any way. So Show more
