WP Engine is a very superior web hosting company whose main aim is just on one: WordPress Hosting. Its whole hosting system proceeds on a WordPress platform (no domain manager, cPanel, phpAdmin etc.). If our website is not running on WordPress, you will need to host your website somewhere else.
I first had knowledge about WP Engine when I interviewed Jason Cohen, who is one of the company’s founders. At the time I interviewed him, the company was just a year old and not many knew about this brand. Near about one year later from the date of interview, I shifted one of my website to WP Engine and the remainder is history.

Founded in July 2010 by Aaron Brazell and Jason Cohen, WP Engine is a very commanding hosting platform for users of WordPress that aims on mainly three issues: Speed, Security and Scalability.
When compared to other hosting site reviews, WP Engine is comparatively new;however, with such a magnificent management and some great market position, it has tempted many big names and influencers in the WordPress community. Our folks from WordPress.com and Automattic.com had made a tactical investment in the late 2011.
FourSquare, HTC, SoundCloud, Balsamiq are some of the very popular brands that are hosted via WP Engine. And a number of bloggers like me migrated to this hosting service.
Why Only WordPress Hosting?
You may question, “Isn’tit foolish to fence your market and aim only on WordPress users?”In fact I was correspondingly surprised when I asked Jason during the interview session. Jason’s reply to this question was “focusing on one thing means we can do a marvelous work”.
So there you go, take it or leave it because this hosting company is all about WordPress. So if you are not a user of WordPress, then this article is not for you and just stops reading further.
But if you are looking for a company who offers serious WordPress hosting, then go ahead and don’t stop reading till it ends as it is a must read for you!
