Managed WordPress hosting, perfected.

What is managed WordPress hosting?

WP Engine takes the guesswork and stress out of maintaining your website with managed WordPress hosting. From monitoring and security to server upgrades and troubleshooting, managing your own WordPress hosting means taking time and energy away from other important projects.

WP Engine wants to give you the freedom to create amazing digital experiences online, without worrying about your tech stack, server security, updates, or server-side optimizations. With our managed hosting services we take care of the technology so you can focus on what’s important to your business.

"Simply put, managed WordPress hosting is there to handle the complexity of hosting for you, while delivering the best digital experiences to your business and your customers."

What makes WP Engine the best managed WordPress host?

Speed, reliability, performance, and peace of mind — these are all reasons to migrate your site to managed hosting with WP Engine. But don’t just take our word for it — over 120,000+ customers in over 125 countries trust us to power their websites every day.

There’s plenty of companies promising the best managed WordPress hosting services, but not many can really deliver. WP Engine’s 150+ strong support team is there to have your back 24/7/365, and our research and development team of over 100 WordPress experts are constantly working to keep our servers fast and secure while delivering new integrations and tools to help you get the very most out of your WordPress experience.

To put this in perspective, many other hosting providers who claim to offer managed hosting services have 3 to 35 employees in total; they simply can’t provide the level of technical performance and support that your business needs.

Managed WordPress hosting vs regular hosting.

Regular hosting can seem like the perfect solution for personal sites, or small business websites. At a third of the price of managed hosting, it seems like a no brainer.

The reality is, you get what you pay for. WP Engine keeps your WordPress site running fast, your servers secure, and makes sure you’re never waiting long for support. Compare this to regular hosting and you’ll quickly see that the low costs come with some pretty major downsides.

For businesses, these issues are even more apparent, even a few seconds of downtime can equal lost revenue, and a slow site means lost customers. Smaller businesses often don’t have time to effectively manage their website, so out of date WordPress installs are surprisingly common (and a leading cause of website hacks).

WP Engine handles your WordPress hosting so you don’t have to worry about your site.

Managed WordPress hosting vs VPS hosting.

With some managed hosting services coming in close to the cost of a VPS, it’s tempting to go with a self-managed hosting package. Though the costs can be similar, and there’s no limit on sites with a VPS, it’s easy to forget just how much work can go in to keeping a self-managed VPS up to date.

With your own servers you’re not just worrying about keeping WordPress updated, but you have to keep PHP and Apache patched and updated as well.

After updates, a base server is not optimized for WordPress. There are thousands of rules and packages that need to be considered carefully, and kept updated, to ensure your websites perform at their best, and stay secure.

The final issue when comparing managed hosting to a VPS is that the best managed hosting providers provide a lot more than just hosting. The WP Engine Digital Experience Platform comes with staging and development environments out of the box, and depending on what you choose, can provide page speed tracking and integration with tools such as New Relic for in-depth server performance tracking.
