We are feeling very enthusiastic about a WordPress-only web host, WP Engine. We’ve gotten a few clients set up with them, and so far, so happy! These are some of the things that have me sold on WP Engine (from their home page):
Expert WordPress Support: A lot of hosting companies say they have “great support”, but few can claim that a WordPress expert will answer all your questions. At WP Engine, there’s no “first level” of support–our entire staff are WordPress experts, so you never hear “We don’t know how to do that.”
Hacked? We’ll Fix It, Free. We automatically scan for, and fix, many hacking attempts on your site. Our guarantee: We’ll do everything we can to ensure your site won’t get hacked. And if your site still gets hacked, we’ll fix it…at no additional charge to you.
Curated Plugins and Themes. Befuddled by the thousands of plugins available? Not sure which theme is the best for you? We’ll suggest the best based on our own experiences. We love working with the WordPress community and third party plugin developers to make sure you don’t waste time trying to find that perfect plugin.
Assistance With Moving Your Sites. We’ll help you move your site onto WP Engine, but we won’t lock you in. We’ll even migrate your site for you. The cost of migration depends on the site. If we don’t earn your business every month, we don’t deserve your money, so we make it easy to leave at any time.
We have heard lots of great things about them, and are recommending them to all of our new clients with WordPress sites and any clients who are unhappy with their hosting – due to slow website response, bad customer service, or any other problems.
