Everybody likes a bargain and that’s one reason free web hosting attracts business owners who want to stretch their resources. But is it really a bargain? There’s a lot about free web hosting you should know before jumping on the bandwagon.
Thanks to Jean, I won a free year of hosting with WP Engine. I was looking for a new WordPress host and have had my eyes on WP Engine for quite a while.
For those of you who are looking for a reliable WordPress hosting solution, I can recommend Bluehost, HostNine and Dreamhost with regards to shared hosting. However, if you are looking for something more secure/powerful/managed and WordPress-specific, I would look elsewhere.
What we are taking a look at today are companies offering managed WordPress hosting. These companies have in-house WordPress experts and have built their hosting system ground up tailored for the specific needs of a WordPress site.
As you might have noticed, WP Mayor is hosted on what we consider to be the best WordPress hosting solution, WP Engine.
We’ve made the switch to WP Engine earlier on in 2012, and we have noticed a distinct improvement in our site. It’s been faster, our rankings have improved, and we no longer have to worry too much about hosting related stuff, as it’s all managed by the fantastic guys at WP Engine.
