Amazing Support, Amazing Speed.

…Migrated from a 13 year old server to WP Engine due to slowness and vulnerability attacks. Used to take 30 seconds to load pages, this host is extremely fast.

Love that they use nginx and avoid all the htaccess nonsense. Panel is intuitive and easy to use. Global Edge works great…
