One of the most important value of a good web hosting service is customer support and their ability to help you out sorting website issues. No wonder, a company like WPEngine have went more future than that by providing a first class WordPress hosting service.
A lot of hosting companies say they have “great support”, but only few can claim that a WordPress expert will answer all your questions as part of the customer service. At WP Engine, their entire staff are WordPress experts, so you will never hear “We don’t know how to do it!”.
In short, they only host WordPress sites!
I had a lot of issues when running one of my blogs at every single other web hosting rather than WPEngine. Since I moved the blog to WBEngine almost 99% of issues magically gone, and I am not worried anymore about a thing.
One click Staging! That’s my favorite WPEngine feature!
There are a set of cool features available in the dashboard that makes me want to stick around longer and enjoying working with my website, my best example should be the Staging feature, where you can have a full copy of your website in a staging mode, that’s exactly what you need when you are developing your website or want to test out some plugins or custom codes before updating the live website. I’ve actually did a whole new re-design for my blog by working on the stage copy, then updated the theme files on the live website when I was done.
Backups and the Staging feature makes it very easy to try new plugins, develop your theme and test out things without effecting your live website.
WPEngine doesn’t provide mail server, so if you want to have your email @ yourdomain, then you must check other hosting providers that provide email hosting, get a free email hosting services like Google Gmail Apps, or a paid email hosting service like Microsoft 365, etc.
