Some of these are affiliate links and help towards supporting my blog. All I either use personally and a couple come via recommendation from my web designer.
WP Engine is my web designer’s favorite and what she calls “professional grade” hosting. What seems on the surface to be expensive hosting is really several website services you would typically have to get separately. WP Engine is an excellent deal. Here are the perks!
- Thirty days of website backups. Daily backups offsite of your website with instant restore for those “oops” moments. Most web hosts only do the previous evening’s backup. Tip, developers consider daily backups a must have for healthy sites.
- Doesn’t slow down, ever! If you are over 5,000 hits a month with traffic, WP Engine’s will not slow down or have “mysterious” frequent outages, they can handle traffic spikes.
- Top of the line scanning for threats. Sucuri malware scanning monitoring and free cleanup included. This is the best in the business (typically $300 per site annually).
- WordPress Sites only. Designed specifically for WordPress with WordPress Managed hosting.
- Tech support with a clue! No wasting your valuable time and they win customer services awards.
- One of the fastest rated web hosts. With Google ranking for speed every second counts. In fact they have a speed test you can run on your website to see if you need to do some tweaks.
- Automatic updates to the WordPress software and excellent security.
