Rebecca Gill is the owner of Web Savvy Marketing, a digital marketing business that keeps her quite busy! We are fortunate that she took a few minutes from her hectic schedule to answer our questions about web host WP Engine, a favorite of many web design professionals, especially for hosting WordPress sites.
I am a wife, mom, and business owner. I founded Web Savvy Marketing back in 2009 after working a number of years in sales and marketing. WSM is a digital marketing agency that provides custom WordPress design, development, and SEO to organizations worldwide. We provide development, stock Genesis themes, and SEO services to small businesses and large organizations.
While we have had dedicated hosting servers for years, we only recently moved to WP Engine in the spring of 2015. We selected WP Engine because of their offerings and great reputation, although I’ll be honest and say their continued presence in our WordPress community was what really drew me to them. They are consistently supporting WordPress via events and content marketing, which has significant influence with me.
Their sales team was very responsive when providing me with pricing and went above and beyond to provide us with a solution perfect for our needs. This was followed up by superb performance and speed that is always backed by excellent technical support. I am very happy with them and I know my clients who host there are just as happy.
Their staging area and ease of migration is their biggest differentiator. It is what sets them apart from other hosting companies and it is a major reason why I steer clients to them for hosting. It makes go-lives and ongoing maintenance much easier then other hosting companies and for us design firms, this is very important.
We have contacted WP Engine for support and each experience has been exceptional. We had an issue that our old host could not resolve within WordPress, but WP Engine fixed it promptly once we moved over to them. The technical support team worked on it for two weeks and would continue to investigate on their own until they found resolution. They have excellent technical support and I’ve been nothing but happy with their customer service.
Absolutely. I recommend them openly on our website and to our custom design clients. They provide an exceptional hosting solution for all size businesses and websites.
Yes. I’ve never questioned this and don’t see a need to question in the future.
