While working on the web, having and running numerous websites, and experienced shared hosting, VPS and even dedicated hosting in times, you might be wondering on or thinking on to switch to such a hosting service where all the things will get securely managed itself by the hosting team. It is quite a decent thought that a web person might think of in time, even the same case comes in front of us either. So, today with this review, I thought on exploring this option with the hosting service name WPEngine and see and find that how much it will make sense to me or you, if we think of to switch to it in near future.
Founded in 2010, WPEngine is a new web host service which only focused on managed WordPress hosting and provides its customers the fast, scale and secure hosting service. While it might considered as an expensive hosting service at first as its starting price is $29 per month, but if one think in broader way, you are getting a service where everything is managed completely with the team in backend from hosting side itself, then paying the amount is also not a bigger deal. At least with having such a service on board to give fuel to your websites with zero havoc and tension to you, it is a fairer deal to opt for.

The only factor which counts with me regarding the service is the support – the company have to work more on this – while WPEngine is a one’s preferred hosting choice for WordPress sites.
