Easy to use

Setting up a WordPress website through WP Engine couldn’t be easier for even the least computer-friendly individuals. WP Engine isn’t your average web host. In fact, it’s a managed hosting environment focused on purely WordPress installations. That said, after signing up for WP Engine, your WordPress website is immediately created for you, no setup necessary.

Having your WordPress website preinstalled for you is a nice feeling, as you can jump right into customizing your website. Since WP Engine focuses only on WordPress installations, this means you won’t be able to upload your Linux- or Windows-based website. If you’re looking for a place to do that, you’ll have to look elsewhere, such as at 1&1 or IdeaHost.

The other neat thing about WP Engine is that beginners can edit pages on their website through the Staging Area. The Staging Area will take a snapshot of your website so that you can determine how changes will affect your website without those changes actually going live. It goes without saying, WP Engine makes getting your own WordPress website up and running a stress-free process.

Help and Support

.WP Engine offers excellent and knowledgeable customer support. We tested it multiple times over the phone and email throughout our testing and WP Engine’s representatives have always been able to answer our questions with expert advice. With how friendly and service-focused WP Engine is, it’s no wonder the company won a gold medal in customer service from the Stevie Awards.

The downside to WP Engine’s customer service is availability. Toll-free telephone support is only available during the working week, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. CST. WP Engine does offer 24/7 email and ticketing support, although it took almost six hours for someone to get back to us through email. If you have an immediate need, they do offer excellent 24/7 Live Chat support to its customers through the User Portal. In fact, they were willing to walk us through the entire setup process, from getting a satisfiable theme loaded on our WordPress website to even directing us to creating our first post.
