When you start a new blog, selecting a webhosting is easy. You can grab webhosting from Bluehost or Hostgator which cost less than $5/month, and these hosting can easily manage the load of a new WordPress blog for first couple of years. When I started online, I started with Dreamhost and later on moved to Hostgator and many other hosting. The problem started, when my website started needing more resource and my VPS hosting guy, couldn’t optimise my hosting enough to handle the traffic.
Blogging is my profession, and with every down-time I lose a great chunk of money. Finally few months back I moved to one of the most expensive managed WordPress hosting via WPEngine and I have shared couple of articles to give you an overview and challenges with WPEngine hosting. Undoubtedly my experience with WPEngine is amazing, and that’s one reason I’m still with them, and paying more than $250.month. The best thing which happened for ShoutMeLoud after migrating to WPEngine is, zero downtime and I can install any number of plugins without worrying about issues like “Internal server error” or “Error connecting to database”. Before I share the video review, here are few articles on managed WordPress hosting and on WPEngine from Shout Me Loud archive.
