WP Engine provides managed WordPress hosting for mission critical sites around the world. Amazing support, enterprise class, & optimized for WordPress.
WordPress is the backbone that supports millions of websites, so it's not surprising that dozens of Web hosting services focus exclusively on hosting one of the world's most popular content management systems—WP Engine among them. WP Engine is a more-than-competent host that boasts excellent uptime, WordPress-specific security, unlimited monthly data transfers, and other excellent features. On the other hand, WP Engine also has some flaws—its lack of email hosting among them—that prevent it from becoming PCMag's favorite WordPress hosting service.
Over time, WP Engine has grown into an extremely popular web host. Many things have changed since WHSR shifted out. Various new features were added as technology advances, the company is funded by a large group of investors including Automattic (the folks behind WordPress.com), and many bloggers and WP experts regard them as one of the best-managed WordPress hostings. When running a business or project of any kind, sometimes it's better to let someone else does all the heavy lifting for you so you can leverage your time on more important tasks.
That's the principle behind WPEngine, a managed WordPress host that secures your WordPress site, optimizes server settings for faster load times, performs daily backups, and automatically updates plug-ins. WPEngine offers many other features for handling more technical tasks, thus leaving you with plenty of time to focus on providing quality content and enhancing targeted promotions. For high traffic sites, WPEngine offers the Premium and Enterprise plans. These hosting plans run on a dedicated server environment. They can handle anywhere between 1 and 5 million monthly visitors without crashing, and you can use them to manage over 150 WordPress installations. Storage ranges between 100-300GB and 4000B-1TB for the Premium and Enterprise plans respectively. Other exclusive services on the higher tier WPEngine managed WordPress hosting plans include launch readiness assessment and strategic account management.
WP Engine specializes in WordPress hosting, so as you'd expect, you should tap the massive CMS plug-in library for ecommerce tools. You can find useful plug-ins from Shopify, WooCommerce, and other companies. There are numerous email marketing tools, too. Drip, DirectlQ, Mailflow, and many other companies offer WordPress plug-ins that let you leverage customers' email addresses to make money.
WP Engine is a leading web host in the managed WordPress host category.

No, WP Engine doesn't offer email, nor does it register domain names. You have to sign up with a third-party company for electronic mail, and you need to register a domain name at NameCheap or another dedicated URL registrar. In addition, many Web hosting services, such as 1&1 and DreamHost$4.95 at DreamHost - Shared, already includes email as a part of each hosting plan. This omission makes WP Engine less convenient if you're starting from scratch, and you also have to factor in those added costs when you are considering its prices, which are not cheap.
