I have been using WPX Hosting for over two years now to host my WordPress blogs, and I run nearly a dozen blogs over the past several years in various states of experimentation. One of the things I like most about WPX Hosting is the automation and support of most items is taken care of by WPX themselves. 1 Click WordPress installs, Automatic Integration with Cloudflare and they have their own CDN for even faster performance and less overhead on the hosting resources. They include tuned W3 Total Cache configurations as part of the WordPress install and their help and support FAQ covers almost everything you need. Plus they will assist you with a site migrations from your old hosting provider making it that much easier for you to just choose them and migrate your site and be done, and they migrate all your sites over from your old hosting platform within 24 hours provided you do the few steps on your site that involve the domain name DNS record updates.
After two years with WPX hosting I have had to open various support tickets and in 95+% of the cases, the issue was resolved very quickly and they did a fine job supporting me. This is is everything from upgrading my PHP version for me or installing a module that I needed for a WordPress plugin, to setting up redirects and even setting up alias redirector domains for me. They even went through the trouble of doing find/replace queries and removing broken/outdated data in my huge database as my site is 12+ years old and has over 6800 published posts. I had an occasional issue where sometimes my SSL certificate wouldn’t auto-renew properly and they quickly resolved within 5 minutes on the rare occasions that it happened. I had all this support with WPX over their live chat, never had to call them over the phone once. Their live chat support impressed me because there is no holds, no waits, you get a technically competent engineer to assist you immediately.
WPX Hosting optimizes page load times thanks to their tuning and caching as well as Cloud and CDN integrations so in addition to making your site load much faster than traditional shared WordPress hosting providers you also gain all the security protections and benefits of being integrated. The real benefit though is the automation and by hosting your WordPress blog on a specific WordPress web hosting site like WPX you can do more content creation and worry less about having to manage the overhead of the WordPress itself. Automatic WordPress upgrade versions, automatic scheduled backups of your WordPress and more mean you can just write, create and host content and leave the admin work to your hosting provider.
They have 3 plans you can choose from and I have the Professional plan and have 13 out of my 15 websites hosted on WPX as you can see from the image at the top of the article.
Now originally with my 12 year old website I was pushing above the 20GB storage with the backups, so I did have to leverage a WordPress plugin called WP Offload Media to help migrate all my old images and static content over to my Amazon S3 bucket. You can use the LITE version for new image uploads going forward, but you need the premium version of the plugin to retroactively go through and migrate your old media content to your S3 bucket. With the WPX Cloud service you don’t have to worry as much about bandwidth usage as anything served up from CDN or cached from Cloudflare won’t count against your actual hosting bandwidth usage. This is only a risk if you are serving up video content that plays and is hosted directly from your sites.

So just so you know, I pay for WPX hosting, I get no discounts, no incentives, no special treatment or discounts here. I am a WPX affiliate because I become an affiliate only for brands, sites and stores that I believe provide a good return on investment or value for spending your hard earned money. I run very complicated blogs, including a bunch of autoblogs with auto scheduled posts, plugins, automation and this blog itself has over 50 plugins and is honestly extremely complex, yet I can’t seem to simplify and reduce the number of plugins without losing much wanted functionality. I do occasionally run into issues, and WPX will sometimes that one of my plugins has gone amuck and is causing extensive resource consumption and I have to deal with it like anyone else who uses a lot of plugins on their WordPress blog on occasion. What WPX hosting does however is a level of analysis and support to help me find my issues that I found in real time live chat that I got with no other hosting service previous, this is why they deserve to be considered as your hosting platform.
