      WPEngine is indeed a great hosting but you are right about the pricing factor. It’s too costly for new bloggers and even for mid-sized blogger. This hosting is great for business WordPress sites. Right now I’m hosted on WPEngine and soon I will be moving away due to overage charges. You can read more about it here: http://www.shoutmeloud.com/wpengine-cons-picing.html

      By the end of the day, it’s a great hosting with a great price tag.

    Hi Harsh, I’been reading you for quite a long time and appreciate very much your advices.

    I’ve noticed that when you select the text in your posts the whole site freezes for some seconds, I don’t know if its me but is very strange.

  2. Biswajit Chopdar says

    Yeah it’s good. But as it is costly there is very low number of sales as compared to other cheap and affordable hosting affiliate programs.

    My blog has been running on WP Engine for a week now, and all I can say is It has never been so fast. Compared to my other blogs hosted elesewhere, the difference is clearly noticeable.

    Hi Harsha please update us regarding your experience with the WpEngine. Lately I have been facing security issues for my private vps. Your feedback with the service will greatly benefit us.

    • Sam A says

      Paul, that was exactly the reason I got away from Bluehost. I have a reseller account at Bluehost and we have had numerous security issues. I have 15 sites hosted at WPengine now and zero problems. The speed is ridiculous, there has been zero downtime that I have been made aware of over the last 3 months, and the other features they offer are awesome. They include daily backups of files and db, staging area where you can copy your production site to a test area and make updates or changes to see if they are compatible, they also have a geoIP feature that can be used to display specific content or pages to different geo locations. 100% confidence in them and zero complaints.

    Even though WPEngine appears to be costly service there are some excellent features which makes their price worth every penny. There are huge number of activities which are taken care by them. Definitely a great service.
