Looking for tailored WP hosting, minimal effort for backups, staging, etc. Seen WP Engine and Flywheel, wondering what others you know of and which are your favorites?
I use Siteground, but I've heard great things about Flywheel. (Especially for WP security.)
I use Siteground for a few Wordpress sites too, but setup Flywheel for one of my clients and it's been amazing so far (over two years with them).
with the exception of a small handful of IP changes, WPEngine has been really solid and performant for many of my needs, and relatively simple for clients as well
I started a similar story earlier this week and got some great responses: https://www.designernews.co/stories/77595-website-hosting
I use for some years now WPEngine, Flywheel and SiteGround. I think WPEngine is top, Flywheel is more developer friendly, but you cannot go wrong with any of them. WPEngine and Flywheel are way more expensive and offer small HD space while WPEngine is more strict on plugins.
Flywheel is the way to go hands down for WordPress
Flywheel, if you want the easiest install of your life.
