Migrating to WPX Hosting | Are They The Best Web Hosting For WordPress?
In this post, I want to tell you why I have just “splashed the cash “on new WordPress web hosting with WPX, ….. in order to take my blog to the next level….
Now, before I spill the beans, something you need to be aware of are all the different decision points you should consider when choosing the best web hosting for WordPress.
WPX Hosting - How Good Are They?
tl;dr Blogging is competitive. In order to succeed you need to look at what the best bloggers are doing. Taking every little win and gain that you can. One key area is WordPress web hosting. Freeing up your time by not having to worry about speed, malware, unseen costs. Which is why I made the move to WPX Hosting, and maybe you should too? Below I will explain my reasoning.
This isn't a task that we do often, so let's take the time now to carefully considering where the best place to host our blog actually is!
I guarantee, when you start to research the best web hosting for WordPress, you will find biased reviews and fanatical opinions. Blog hosting really creates a tribal culture and people take it very seriously.
So in this post, I am not going to ram it down your neck that “WPX is the bestest!!”
Instead, I am going to simply explain why I chose them, and why you should consider them too….
Who Is WPX Hosting?
Anyone who gets started with blogging, and does the research, will see the usual suspects mentioned time and time again.
If I want my blog to improve retention, climb the rankings, and generally perform better then I should start with one of the fastest hosting providers I could get – without selling a kidney.
Thankfully WPX ticks both boxes, more on costs in a moment
World Class Support
This post isn't a review (I haven't been with them long enough yet), it's my initial experience and my personal reasons to migrate to WPX hosting….but, when I signed up (which is easy), the first thing I had to do was contact their support.
Something of legend amongst the bloggers I speak too!
Now I work in technical support, but was still dreading having to migrate my blogs – would I lose everything? What details do I need to give them?
My fears were not needed.
I logged in, clicked on migration request, filled in a few short answers….whilst on the site I had a few questions so I pressed the chat button and got a near enough instant answer. They beat the 30 second response time they proudly boast at WPX.
The WPX support is extremely responsive which for me is a key factor when deciding on the best web hosting for WordPress.
You will have questions, that's normal. WPX Hosting assure you that they are there to help, no matter what the issue.
Many of the big hosting providers let themselves down with poor support records. Whereas WPX hostings reputation is as good as you will find.
WPX Hosting Costs
Without doubt, WPX are more expensive than my current UK hosts.
They are not the cheapest and not the most expensive.
Surely that's a negative?
Well not really no.
You see most hosting providers will tie people into an initial offer, knowing that people are probably unlikely to move from them, they then bump up the year 2 costs – when us bloggers then feel free trapped, or wondering whether it's worth the efforts (Year 1 as a blogger is TOUGH!).
So whilst WPX don't discount, they appear to have enough going for them that they don't feel the need to discount.
They include premium features at the cost, and that wouldn't be viable if they were running low intro offers and appealing t the masses.
I like that confidence!
If they charged $10 for year one, they would likely be flooded, overloaded and have consequential knock-on effects with some of their best features, which I am covering next.
Ultimately I've paid $250 to host 5 blogs for a year. An amount I don't see as unreasonable to run various income streams – some of which are already earning more than that.
Simple WordPress Migrations
Hosting providers are not soft, they know the average person isn't going to want the hassle of migrating a site and risk losing all of their hard-worked posts.
They want you as a customer for life. But very few hosting providers will help you migrate your site for free, and the ones that do often cap it at one blog, which is no good for me.
WPX Hosting allow me to migrate ALL my sites, and it's such a simple process. In fact, I've created a video below that explains exactly what is involved.
Have you ever had a WordPress site hacked?
I have, my own fault, poor management of plugins and one of them was compromised.
They ripped my site apart, had it ranking for Ukrainian football, adult material, and car parts, all in a matter of days. They embedded themselves deep into my WordPress site.
My host disabled my site as it was risking their service and I had to start again.
