What makes WP Engine special?
Forget feature comparison charts. What makes us special?
1. 2x faster page-load times than the nearest competitor.
Independent analysis by services like Pingdom® and WebPageTest.org show that WP Engine is between 2 and 4 times faster than all our competitors. (Inquire within if you want the raw data from 3rd-party analysis and backed by customer testimonial.)
For customers moving off shared-hosting or self-hosting setups, on average we see 4x speed improvement, and we can handle traffic spikes that your little VPS slice can’t.
Speed matters, because every second your page sits spinning blank in the browser is more time for your potential visitor to hit the “back” button, and because Google and Bing penalize slow sites with low search rankings, which means less traffic for you.
2. Most staff WordPress experts per 1000 customers, on Earth.
We have more full-time on-staff WordPress experts per 1000 customers than anyone else.
That means more attention and better advice for you. And because we raised a little money, we can afford to keep the lead in this category.
Some hosting providers brag that they answer the phone on the first ring, but the person who answers doesn’t know WordPress. That’s not customer service, that’s just an answering service. Other hosting providers brag how efficient they are with only two people servicing thousands of customers, but that just means they physically cannot spend time with any of them.
3. The only company with a security guarantee.
Shared- and dedicated-hosting installations get hacked constantly — ask any seasoned WordPress consultant — and when it happens they say “security is your problem.” Which it is, because they won’t help. They can’t afford to.
A few competitors claim they’ll help with security, but they still don’t guarantee it. Which means when you do get hacked — which thousands of blogs did recently with exploits in “wp-phpmyadmin” and “timthumb” — you’re still left to detect the hack yourself, and fix it yourself.
Only WP Engine has a guarantee — that in addition to our best efforts to block hackers, we actively scan your site for malware and other evidence of hacking, and when found, we’ll fix it for you. Included.
4. The only hosting company that lets you try it for free.
We back up our claims of awesome speed, scale, and tech support with a 60-day money back guarantee, so you can see all this for yourself risk free for two months!
That’s because we’re confident, and because we genuinely don’t want you to switch to us unless you’re thrilled.
5. The only WordPress hosting company with an investment from Automattic.
Automattic — the company that creates and maintains WordPress — is an investor in WP Engine, which means they’re literally putting their money where their mouth is, supporting us as a quality, reliable, trusted WordPress hosting company.
We think this speaks for itself.
What you might not know is it also means we have direct access to the “smart guys” at Automattic, both for resolving difficult customer issues and for auditing and improving our hosting architecture.
Join us and experience awesome WordPress hosting.
Our customers see an increase in traffic when they move to us, because their fast sites keep visitors engaged and search positions rise. They come to rely on our knowledgeable support staff. They rest easy knowing hackers will never win.
It feels good, getting pampered while pageviews go up.
