Good platform for web hosting
Briana Garrett,
9.2
I find them very good platform to purchase web hosting services. I will surely recommend them with some other good options like Hostinger, Godaddy and Domainracer to make a best choice.

Hello guys, WP Engine is one of the the best and cheap WordPress hosting providers. I have purchased the personal plan that is very cost effective and good for those who want to start a WordPress website or any other site.
Yo... More u should also buy WP Engine hosting for better and positive results.

Very bad service

Staff trained wrongly, they say lies, cheating on you constantly. I cannot get rid of this company now, they keep on attacking you with offers and don’t let go easy, putting additional charges, very annoying people, my nightmare!
WP ENGINE HAS LET ME DOWN
Sandy McCarthy,
4.8
I have been with WP Engine for my wordpress site for several years now. I had heard they were the best for a business Wordpress site. In the past, I had no problems with my site ever going down. Since switching to WP Engine, ... More It has been problem after problem with my site going down for hours at a time. I finally had to set up with a Down Time notification service so I could keep track. They have switched my site over to different servers several times but never seem to be able to provide a reason or explanation for the problem. Their pricing is way higher than most companies (which they admit) yet they provide nothing special and their reliability is not stable at all. Now actively looking to switch my site to a different company. Less
