WPX Hosting Review

WPX Hosting Review Summary

Another web hosting service that has chosen to throw its support behind WordPress, WPX Hosting has a reputation for superior performance. However, even with the WordPress branding you can install other web applications instead. It relies heavily on its own technologies such as a custom Cloud CDN and replaces cPanel with a proprietary user dashboard instead.

Editor's Review & Recommendation

WPX Hosting seems to be a host with many talents. There has been much acclaim to its excellent performance, and they are ready to back that up with a solid uptime guarantee. This supports the truth behind their claims to use cutting-edge technologies and under-crowd their servers.

While arguing that they might seem a little pricey compared to most web hosts, this fact is honestly debatable. In terms of value-for-money what WPX Hosting has to offer certainly compares to WordPress kingpins WP Engine and Kinsta.

If you’re serious about your WordPress website and intend for it to grow, WPX Hosting is an excellent choice to look towards. My only gripe about them seems to be a lack of detail when it comes to what exactly their plans offer at times. 

For Newbies and Individual Bloggers

Given the lowest starting price of $20.93 per month, if paid for annually, WPX Hosting will likely be out of reach for most newbies and bloggers. Yes, you can throw the cash that way if you have no better use for it, but it would make more sense to learn in a more cost-effective environment first. Likewise, the majority of bloggers with low-volume sites will have difficulty justifying the cost of this host.

WPX Hosting Plans - Not easy to justify the cost when you are just starting out.

    "WPX has its own custom dashboard."

    For simple tasks like SSL, backups, email, staging, and FTP, it’s very simple to use. However, I believe it is simple and lacking in features. Beginners don’t have any trouble using the dashboard, but some expert users might feel their level of customization is limited.

    "My go-to web host"

    Over the years I’ve tried a lot of web hosts. From budget hosts to VPS & dedicated servers.

    But, out of all of them, WPX Hosting has been one of the best I’ve tried.

    In fact, I’ve hosted my most important websites with them for years.

    There are a few reasons for this. Firstly, their server performance is excellent. Their servers can cope with pretty significant traffic levels without buckling under the strain (unlike some other hosts).

    You also get malware scanning and removal, CDN, free SSL and DDoS protection. This removes the need for extra services like Sucuri.

    In terms of support, while they don’t have phone support, I’ve never needed it. They reply to most support tickets within 10 minutes. There usually aren’t wait times to speak to someone on live chat and their front-line support are able to solve most issues quickly.

    WPX Hosting is so good that I bought a second account for my newer websites. Highly recommended.

    "Good Web Hosting"

    I’ve used WPXHosting for my clients. Their web hosting is very good and they give their own CDN which is very good for the speed. I always suggest this hosting to my readers.

    But from this year (2020), there were many people who joined WPX Hosting. After that their Support services and CDN is not working properly. Even their support team is not even professional. They don’t want know how to work on technical things. The issue which I was telling to their support team. I’ve resolved it by myself.

    "Great customer service!"

    I have been with WPX Hosting for more than 3 years and I am 100% happy with their service.

    The key to success in any business lies in value of its customer services. In webhosting, customer care is the cornerstone of continuity.

    WPX Hosting support team is always available to make sure things are working alright for their customers. They pay enough attention to customer tickets and live chats to make sure issues are resolved as prompt and quick as possible. You can have the support staff do EVERYTHING for you. I mean everything and that includes installing a light SSL redirect plugin on your blog as well as migrating your files (emails and other web databases) from an old host.
