Considering WP Engine for Managed WordPress Hosting?
WP Engine is a popular destination for premium-priced WordPress-only hosting — it is, after all, the company’s sole focus and their only product. On the surface, that’s a terrific selling point. But upon closer inspection, you may decide that their solution simply forces you to make too many compromises.
WP Engine limits the number of visitors your sites can have (as few as 25,000 per month), and won’t allow you to use any plugin that they’ve disallowed. If your favorite plugin, a component required by your preferred theme, or a plugin you track down (or create) to solve a specific issue falls out of favor, then you’re out of luck. Most of WP Engine’s more affordable plans rely on shared hosting — a limited, one-size-fits-all solution which forces them to go to great lengths to ensure (and enforce) compatibility. In a shared environment, any single site’s resource usage or traffic could negatively impact the dozens or hundreds of other sites on the same server; hence the need for restrictions on resource usage and plugins. Compounding the issue is the fact that when you don’t own your own data centers, troubleshooting and resolving issues with the servers themselves can be more difficult, expensive, and time-consuming.
Liquid Web has been a leader in the web hosting industry since 1997, serving tens of thousands of customers using WordPress — and every other platform imaginable. That experience has allowed us to engineer and optimize our network and power infrastructure, as well as construct data centers from the ground up.
Rather than simply adopting a popular platform and figuring out the rest moving forward, we’ve taken everything we’ve learned in our mission to perfect the art of web hosting and applied that knowledge to the world’s No. 1 CMS. Liquid Web’s Managed WordPress plans put your sites on equal footing with some of the biggest companies in the world — using the same class of hardware and powered by the same rock-solid infrastructure — with no need to compromise.
Nobody Includes More Than Liquid Web
We provide full management for one of the world’s most popular CDNs, and full support when your site is added to CloudFlare through our interface. CloudFlare will not only speed up your site, but also provide a further boost to security.
Local backups are always included at no extra charge. For an extra layer of backup protection, you can add our Guardian backup system, which uses replication, synchronization, and point-in-time snapshots.
Security is paramount, which is why we include ServerSecure™ with every Fully Managed server. Your server will be protected by a range of proprietary security enhancements to block unwanted access and keep your data secure.
DDoS Attack Protection
We provide free basic protection from small volumetric DDoS attacks with every server on our network. Best of all, it’s always on and ready to go. For larger and more sophisticated attacks, comprehensive protection and mitigation is available.

As a whole, anytime I speak to a rep from Liquid Web, no one sounds robotic, which I appreciate (it surly helps that y’all don’t outsource sales or support).”
