Increase website speed with the fastest WordPress hosting
Create a better experience by improving your website speed up to 40% after migrating to WP Engine. Faster page speeds will increase your Google rankings and will drive more traffic to your site.
What makes WP Engine
the fastest WordPress host?
We used 3rd party data to determine who has the fastest platform and found that WP Engine has the highest percentage of top WordPress hosts' sites that load under 200ms. Our proprietary EverCache caching technology is built with WordPress-specific rules designed to move hundreds of millions of hits per day, meaning your site runs faster with less strain on resources. We also offer a free CDN and global data centers to provide a fast experience to global audiences.
Every second counts
EverCache technology reduces load on your server while boosting page speed. Pages that take more than 3s to load lose 53% of users.
Higher conversion rates
99.99% SLA with uptime protection for high-traffic sites. Conversions fall by 12% for every second a webpage takes to load.
Automatic core updates
Platform optimized for WordPress. Stay up to speed with the latest technology, daily updates, and core backups.

Improving website speed up to 40% for more than 1.5M active websites post-migration to WP Engine
"The post migration experience has been great. Our page load speeds have been amazing. The same pages that were taking us 20-40 seconds are now taking 2-3 seconds to load. And, we made very little changes to them, if any at all. We were able to put back our Wistia video pages that were so clunky on our old platform. It just allowed us to go back to the kind of experience we wanted to provide."
—Doug Phelps, Success Manager, EBQ
