    Hi Harsh,

    Thanks for the information, i am new to blogging and web hosting. I have a question here, i can see WP engine personal plan starts at $29/mo. If an user sign up to this personal plan for one month from my referral link, will i get paid $200 for that particular sale? Or should the user has to buy an yearly plan? Can you please help me to get clarity?

    Thanks Harsha, But It is best hosting for wordpress? I thought It’s hosting is costly for fresh blogger ?

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      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: https://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.

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      Thanks for letting me know and I will look into it.

  5. Biswajit Chopdar

    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.

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      You are right about the low number of sales, but still it’s something you can proudly recommend because of the quality.

    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.

    1. Sam A

      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.
