What is WPEngine? Managed WordPress Hosting

The first decision to make is the software you want the site to be built on. At this point, WordPress feeds about 18% of the Internet because it is the software of choice for business owners who want a clean and well-designed website that is easy for them to upgrade. WordPress fits the bill and is also a secure solution that protects sensitive data online.


The next step should be to go with an exclusive WordPress hosting company or a Managed WordPress Host. This means a company that specializes only in WordPress, so they built their technology based on performance and security. Not hosting with a managed host of WordPress would be like taking your taxes to your lawyer to do - you would not get great results.

Often, hosting is a late reflection and the decision is made based on how cheap web hosting can be purchased. Cheap or shared hosting that will leave them hanging when they have too much traffic or someone trying to hack your site.

Business owners need a fast and clean website that looks beautiful and represents their brand. The most important keyword is "Managed Hosting". This means that the hosting company has business-grade servers that are fast and scalable, and that means the business owner gets the benefit of having enterprise-level SysAdmins running the servers.

You can expect to pay more for that kind of quality, but the alternative is to pay $ 6 a month for a slow website that does not impress your customers.

Managed Hosting also means that the company takes care of all security on your behalf. Companies like WP Engine really do guarantee the security of your website, so if you get hacked, the hosting company will cover the cleaning costs, which can be thousands of dollars, depending on the size of the site.

Bryan Haines: What resources really matter when rating all the options and resources?

Austin Gunter: That depends on what you need for your specific business. Support is probably the "feature" that will make the biggest difference in your hosting experience. When you need help with your website, you want to talk to bright geeky people who can solve your technical problems quickly and are patient to help you sort things out. As you are hosting in WordPress, make sure the support team is made up of WordPress experts so they can fix not only the servers but also the site.

Look for a web host that automatically creates backups of your site every day, and does not charge you for the fun (some). Then look for a company that has a test area and an option for versioning.

Trust me, your developer and designer will thank you for it.

Bryan Haines: What do you offer that sets you apart from other web hosts?

Austin Gunter: WP Engine has some of the best support for Managed WordPress Hosting on the internet. We have more support engineer per client than anyone else, and each of them has years of WordPress experience. We are also the only company that guarantees our safety. At this point, you should assume that your WordPress host is incredibly fast and scalable under high traffic load, but WP Engine has some secret bundle in our technology called EverCache, which means that the WordPress sites hosting with us are blisteringly fast and incredibly scalable. Get that huge increase in traffic, and your website will never fall.

WP Engine is the only managed platform for WordPress.

That means we've built our service with companies that want to build ambitious projects with WordPress and for developers who need amazing tools to build not just blogs, but large-scale sites and applications in WordPress. For example, we have a one-click test area, as well as Git-Push for version control.

You can completely customize your theme and use the plugins you choose in WP Engine, but you still get managed security and speed. It's the best of both worlds.

Bryan Haines: Choosing a web host can affect the SEO of an individual website?

Austin Gunter: Absolutely. Google takes into account the speed of the site with its search algorithm because they found that every additional 100ms of page load time meant a 20% drop in traffic. The longer your site loads, the more visitors will leave the site and go on their day. You want a host that is capable of serving pages in 1.5 seconds or less. Business owners migrating to WP Engine see their sites load an average of 2x-4x faster and notice an immediate increase in search engine results.

Bryan Haines: How important are the uptime percentages that web hosts frequently display? How much difference is there really between different hosts? How is the reliability of WP Engine?

Austin Gunter: Uptime is critical, but measuring this can be tricky and increasing the uptime of these last percentage points, a major challenge. Hosts usually advertise somewhere between 99% and 99.999% uptime. Assuming a 365-day cycle, uptime of 99% means, in some days, unplanned downtime (read, unscheduled maintenance) for your sites. That means 99.999% brings your site to only a few hours of downtime for that year. That's the difference between paying for a shared host and paying more for a managed host that will give you at least 99.99% uptime. To get an uptime of 100%, it would take tens of thousands of dollars per month in hosting time and system. The intersection between cost and uptime is where most entrepreneurs meet, and that is why a managed host is again the choice of more and more entrepreneurs. They may pay five or six times more than a shared host would cost and receive a slice of corporate hosting that would otherwise cost tens of thousands per month.

Bryan Haines: Do you offer setup/hosting/simplified blog maintenance?

Austin Gunter: Absolutely. You get a fully installed WordPress site and we'll manage WordPress updates, security and scalability. All you have to do is set the theme and put your brand there. It has never been easier to get your business online.

Bryan Haines: What backup tool do you recommend for WordPress blogs?

Austin Gunter: We have our own backups that we create every night. However, my feelings are never harmed when our customers opt for redundant backups and use something like Backup Buddy. You can not go wrong there.

Bryan Haines: A site hosted elsewhere can be moved to your servers? How can this be done?

Austin Gunter: While the site is based on WordPress, you can migrate to our servers with ease. We will even help the migration if necessary. Many people choose to migrate on their own, r have their developer do it, but for a fixed fee, we can take care of that.

Bryan Haines: What level of support do you offer with your base package?

Austin Gunter: We offer full support in Zendesk by WordPress experts. We answer most of the tickets within 30 minutes and come back online. For the Business Package, which many companies choose, you will receive phone support and may even opt for a dedicated account manager so they always talk to the same person when they have a question.
