So lets go the tests my team has done to check whether WP Engine is the right choice for you.
Price and Plans:
Everything will come with its own price tag except relationships. (Everything has its own price tag under the sun.) If you want it, you have to afford that price for it.
My WP Engine review 2016 will show you clearly how the sites hosted by WP Engine performed.
While coming to any hosting company, we will have to consider its flexibility, reliability, performance first into the picture. So here are the tests which tells you the story of W-P engine and helps you to know about it better.
All the people who wants to buy their site will also want their site to never go down. Since it can cause a huge loss to your business. For eg: If amazon goes down for even 5 mins. The company might loose millions of customers.
So i have kept a close look of many sites that has been hosted with WP Engine. And for my surprise, wait wait let the report itself speak first.
Well i’m not sure why the 30 days uptime is showing 99.99% even if the site hasn’t gone down for a min also. But checking the track reports its an excellent uptime. So you must not have any issue regarding the uptime of your site if your going to host it in WP Engine.
I hope you don’t want your customers waiting for a minute for your site to load. WP Engine here promises lighting speed as they use a unique technology for caching the files saved in your database and makes the site load much faster than the other hosting companies. Let’s see if they really work well as promised.
Look at the sites having 5.3 MB size. That is considered to be a huge size when it comes to the home page. But WP Engine does pretty well as it loads the site well within 7 seconds. And the site that has an average size of around 2 MB load well within 3 seconds which is incredible. So if you’re out there for lightning speed then WP Engine is surely in your list.
