WP Engine is a web hosting provider that specialises in WordPress, which is a hugely popular content management system that you can use to build a website with minimal coding. In contrast to many other web hosting services, WP Engine focuses solely on managed WordPress plans, so if you’re looking for virtual private servers or dedicated servers, you’ll have to look elsewhere.

But if you plan to build your creative site using the WordPress platform, WP Engine could be one of the best places to do it. In our WP Engine review, we look at what makes this service different to help you decide whether it’s a good choice for your next website project.
