WPEngine Review & Walkthrough for 2015. I use WPEngine to host all of my websites and all of my client sites. It’s a fantastic platform and when you are ready to take your business to the next level and get a real professional web host setup you can choose the right plan here: http://richardmatthews.me/go/wpengine-plans/
My Top 5 favorite features of WPEngine:
1 – WordPress Only – Makes it ridiculously easy to setup new site and have them functioning perfectly
2 – Scalable – They can handle as much traffic as you can throw at them. Wonderful.
3 – Build in SSL Support – Still gotta pay for the actually certificate, but the installation and management is a BREEZE! Easiest stuff I’ve ever setup for SSL and secure parents on my sites.
4 – LIVE CHAT! – Wow… WPEngine’s live chat support is their killer feature. They have tons of support staff that are very very knowledgable about WordPress and WordPress specific problems. I’ve almost always been able to get issues resolved really quickly with them.
5 – Auto Updates & Backups – They take care of backing up my site every night. I can roll back easily. They also automatically upgrade my WordPress versions whenever they are available and AFTER they’ve been tested for security vulnerabilities. Plus they guarantee that they’ll fix my site if it ever gets hacked. Talk about peace of mind for a business user.
