WP Engine is a WordPress-focused hosting company headquartered in Austin, Texas. WebDevStudios loves working with WP Engine and has a number of clients who are using their hosting services. We even host our own sites, including WebDevStudios.com on WP Engine!
Why do we love WP Engine so much? There are TONS of reasons!
- Easy to migrate your WordPress website to WP Engine.
- Easy to maintain whether you are a developer or an individual.
- Speed & Caching
- One-click staging with GIT integration
- Great customer support
- Dedication to the WordPress Community
WP Engine has a number of different plans to fit your WordPress website needs. Every plan includes amazing support that starts with website migration and continues through out the life of your website. As I have mentioned many times before, I am in no way a technical person, but with the help of WP Engine’s documentation and support team I was able to migrate my own WordPress website all by myself! They were also able to help me with a few small plugin issues post-migration in a very timely manner.
WP Engine is great to work with as a developer too! Brad has worked with the WP Engine team for a variety of projects from a simple blog to a complicated Multisite install. We can certainly say that due to unforeseen, random issues not every migration has gone super smoothly, but working with the WP Engine team is always a pleasure.
One of the biggest things we notice about sites that are migrated to WP Engine is the instant speed increase. If you are looking for a hosting company that is implementing all the best practices when it comes to site speed, this is it. WP Engine does a great job managing traffic spurts and site loading times. They also manage page-caching, database-caching and object-caching.and have a CDN upgrade to account for sites with a large amount of media.
As a WordPress development company one of our favorite features is the one click staging site. We really appreciate how WP Engine makes it easy to stage and test your site before pushing it live. WP Engine also provides Git integration available to all of their clients. The Git-push-to-deploy setup adds the ability to deploy your applications using the open-source Git version control system. These features are great for us as a development company, but are also ideal for anyone who is looking to update a live site or learn WordPress development as they go.
We also can’t say enough great stuff about all the things WP Engine does beyond providing great hosting! WP Engine is a HUGE supporter of the WordPress community. They have been a sponsor for our local WordCamp Philly for the last three years and have sponsored a number of other WordCamps all over the country as well. They take their community role seriously and try to do their best to both promote their product and help WordPress improve the WordPress community.
