    TOP Free Extras Review

    As we review the main WPEngine’s platform pliers and their added bonuses (which are not completely free), now it’s time to see which are the best free added goodies provided in every hosting plan.
    With every plan, you get CDN servers all around the world for better and fast connections.

    Also, every plan can be customized through the scalable resources feature, which allows you to change the resources of your hosting within a few simple movements.

    Free migration is available, too as we found when we were doing our review. You can migrate to WPEngine in minutes within a few clicks. But if you want to choose the enterprise or the agency plan you need to send a request to the companies’ support.

    More goodies:
    Free SSL
    Disaster Protection
    DDoS Protection
    Auto Backups

    WPEngine Performance Review

    The host company is providing tools, themes, and hosting, but what is the performance, and is it fast and reliable enough?

    When we did our review on it, the company is using the latest SSD technologies on their services. And provides high-grade performance, optimized for WordPress with 99%+ Uptime Guarantee. Also, the platform provides auto core WordPress updates with a safe anti-hacker security environment, that keeps your investment safe.

    Pingdom Lag Test

    To test the WPEngine’s performance we use the Pingdom testing tool and a simple website set on the “STARTUP” plan.

    We did a review of the loading times of the website and we get a result of 1.31-sec average page loading. The page loading rate is a key Google ranking factor and every website which loads under 2 seconds covers the standard rate of a website for Google.

    So, we can say that the results are not the most impressive ones but without any complain it provides fast services.

    WPEngine Hosting Review – Conclusion

    After reviewing the main specs, features, and plans of the WPEngine hosting company we from Howtohosting.guide can say that the company is very reliable and can trust them. They also have a very well ordered website and information for everything.
