Web hosting
can be tricky. Some web hosts are unacceptably slow, some have unreasonable
traffic limits, some are too pricey, and the rest are plain awful with
non-existent support. We too have had our fair share of disappointments with
web hosting and have changed 5 hosts in the last 10 years. So, when we
moved our websites to WPX hosting in 2017, we were naturally apprehensive.

Did this managed WordPress hosting provider really deliver on its promise of lightning-fast performance, water-tight security, 99.95% uptime, 37-seconds support response times without burning a hole through our pockets? In our three years of association with WPX Hosting, we can honestly claim to know the answer.

And now
it’s time to share it with you.

In this no holds barred WPX hosting review, I will delve into its minutest details and test it against these crucial metrics: ease of use, performance, security, unique features offered, support quality, and affordability. I will also share reviews of WPX Hosting left on other platforms and social media to offer you a complete picture of this managed WordPress hosting provider.

In fact, it’s important to ask whether a WPX hosting subscription pays for itself or not? You will get the answer to this question throughout this review of WPX Hosting. This is a longish review so you might want to bookmark it (Ctrl + D) for future reference.

But before we begin our WPX Hosting review…

A short overview of WPX Hosting

WPX Hosting was started in 2013 as Traffic Planet Hosting by Terry Kyle, its CEO. Terry Kyle claims he grew frustrated with generic $2 shared hosting companies that weren’t able to handle high traffic loads, couldn’t provide 24/7 quality support, and ran unacceptably slow-performing servers.

WPXhosting also began partly because of Terry Kyle’s love of dogs. Its revenue helps feed more than 500 homeless dogs daily in Sofia, Bulgaria, in association with the Dana Foundation.

Is WPX truly a managed
WordPress hosting provider?

This question is important since there are many hosting companies offering managed WordPress hosting plans, but the fact is that they do not offer WordPress hosting in its true sense.

Must Read: What is Managed WordPress Hosting and Is It Worth It?

Such companies offer generic managed hosting on which you can install WordPress apart from other content management systems like Drupal or Joomla using a control panel like cPanel. The server is not optimized for WordPress, and the support often cannot handle technical WordPress queries.

WPX Hosting is WordPress-focussed, and you cannot install any other CMS on its platform. It offers a custom-built control panel, malware scanning, CDN, staging area and offers specialized WordPress support. So, the answer to the question, whether WPX is a managed WordPress hosting provider, is a clear yes.

You can read more about the differences between managed and unmanaged hosting.

WPX Hosting Review

I will
begin by first reviewing its control panel or user interface and whether it
offers ease of use to novices and advanced WordPress users.

WPX Hosting User Interface

WPX Hosting offers its custom control panel that is fairly simple to use. All its services are listed on a single page.

WPX hosting control panel
WPX Hosting Control Panel

You can perform multiple tasks from this interface, such as:

  1. Install or delete WordPress on any
    of your websites
  2. Create a staging area
  3. Access your WordPress database
  4. Create, delete and access email
  5. Add an FTP account
  6. Edit DNS settings
  7. Access your WordPress files using
    the File Manager
  8. Manage your backups, including,
    create a personal backup
  9. Check whether the WPX cloud is
    enabled or not and disable the CDN cache

A unified interface helps in performing routine tasks quickly and in a pain-free manner. You will appreciate the benefit of WPX Hosting’s streamlined interface when you compare this with the interface offered by cPanel, which is also the most common interface used by budget web hosting companies.

cPanel interface
cPanel Interface

You need to
navigate multiple menus and sub-menus to perform simple tasks like installing
WordPress or setting up your webmail. But WPX Hosting has unified all these
tasks under a single interface, which has an easy look and feel, whether you’re
a WordPress novice or pro.

Creating a website and
installing WordPress

Creating a website with WPXhosting is a fairly straightforward task. All you need to do is access the Your Websites sub-menu.

You can perform multiple tasks here with just one click. You can start by adding a new website, then install WordPress on the site you just created, and finally install a free or commercial SSL certificate on your newly created domain.

WPXhosting - Install SSL certificate
Install Free SSL Certificate

The best
part of all this? Every task needs just one click to get started and not
more than three to complete. Is it easy to use for WordPress beginners?
Yes. WordPress pros can do this with one hand tied behind their backs.

WPXhosting Staging area

If you like testing changes you made or new features you added to your site before making them live, then you need a staging area where you can play around until you are ready to deploy your changes.

WPX Hosting offers a comprehensive Staging feature on all plans. The only thing you should know is that you need at least one empty WordPress slot for the staging area since it is basically a clone of your existing WordPress website.

Once you
feel you no longer need the staged site, you can delete it with one click.

Migrating Your Website to
WPX hosting

But what if
you already own a WordPress website and wish to migrate it to WPX hosting?
There’s some good news in store for you.

WPX hosting
offers free unlimited migrations for all your websites, limited only by
your hosting plan. So, if you choose the Business plan with up to 5 WordPress
installs, the good people at WPX will migrate your 5 WordPress sites for free.

While other
managed WordPress hosts either charge for website migration or offer free
migration only from selected hosts, WPX hosting has no such restrictions. All
you need is a WordPress site, and the rest is taken care of by their expert

To migrate your site to WPX hosting, simply send a migration request from the Your Websites dashboard.

Migrate website using WPX hosting
Website Migration Request

You will be
re-directed to the website migration request form.

There are a few details you need to fill here, such as website URL and credentials, including username and password. Next, you will need to select the migration process you wish WPX support to use, whether, cPanel, FTP, SSH, or your database backup.

WPX Hosting - migrate using cPanel
Multiple Migration Options

If you’re
presently using cPanel to manage your WordPress websites, you should select
cPanel from the drop-down. However, if you’re migrating from a managed
WordPress host
, you can provide FTP or SSH access to your existing website.
If you don’t have access to either, you can provide your recent website backup
with the database, and WPX hosting tech support will take care of the rest.

But WPX doesn’t just migrate your website. They offer to migrate your email as well.

And I haven’t even told you about their free webmail feature, which will save you at least $11.88 per year. But more on that later.

WPX Hosting Performance
Review: Speed that Thrills

WordPress user feels the need for speed. In this performance review round, we
will test the speed and uptime offered by WPX Hosting. First, let us check out their
content delivery network (CDN) called the WPX cloud and the speed benefits of
using their cloud network.

High-Speed WPX Cloud (CDN)

WPX Hosting offers free Content Delivery Network (CDN) called the WPX Cloud. Your WordPress site is set up to use their CDN by default on signup. When we first signed up with WPX hosting in 2017, they did not offer a CDN with their hosting plans.

At that time, our niche website loaded swiftly in the US, where the server is located but used to load only reasonably fast in India, where most of our traffic originated. So, we employed Amazon’s CloudFront CDN to make our website load quicker.

However, when WPX hosting launched its free cloud service in 2018, we didn’t switch over to WPX Cloud by default, even though we launched PassionWP in May 2019. It was only two months later that we finally made the switch.

And boy, are
we glad?

Just look at the difference in PassionWP’s loading speed, as measured by GTmetrix, before and after switching over to WPX cloud CDN.

WPX hosting before optimization
Before Optimization and Switching On WPX Cloud
WPX hosting after optimization
After Optimization and Switching On WPX Cloud

Of course, we also worked on other WordPress speed optimization factors to lower the number of server requests and improve our page load times.

page load times dropped from over 8 seconds to less than 2 seconds.

Fast Server Performance
from Different Locations

We also
tested our page load times from 7 different locations around the globe using

You might
know that Google recommends an ideal Server Response Time (SRT) of 200 ms or
less. So how did WPX Hosting fare here? The Server Response Time (SRT) was less
than 200 ms
when tested from Dallas, Hong Kong, Mumbai. And it was below
500 ms or 0.5 seconds from the other locations.

Location Server Response Time (SRT) Fully Loaded Time
Dallas, USA 147.9 ms 1.8 s
Hong Kong, China 156.2 ms 2.5 s
London, UK 433.9 ms 1.6 s
Mumbai, India 123.6 ms 0.6 s
Sydney, Australia 371.6 ms 1.4 s
Sau Paulo, Brazil 461.5 ms 1.6 s
Vancouver, Canada 476.5 ms 1.4 s

But SRT is
just one important indicator of page load times and not the whole story. What
really matters is how quickly the entire page loads. WPX Hosting truly walked
the talk here. Except for Hong Kong, PassionWP loaded in under 2 seconds
from every other test location.

Load Impact Test

We didn’t just stop at page load times. We did a full stress impact test on Load Impact using 50 Virtual Users (VUs) to test the response times, and other performance metrics.

The result is truly amazing.

WPX Hosting load impact test
Stress Impact test

You can see that even at peak load of 50 VUs, the average response time only 66 ms.

And here is the result of the CPU utilization test.

WPX hosting CPU utilization review
WPX Hosting CPU Utilization test

You can see
that except for two spikes when the CPU utilization touched almost 20%, the CPU
utilization was well below 10%
. This points to underloaded servers that can
handle traffic surges with ease.

But don’t just take our word for it

Trust Kevin Ohashi of Review Signal that did a detailed performance test of the best WordPress hosts of 2019 and WPX Hosting earned the top tier status in the under $25 hosting category amongst 19 competitors.

This is what he has to say about WPXhosting:

WPX Hosting has returned to participating (formerly Traffic Planet Hosting) and earned themselves a Top Tier award. Not much to say beyond near perfect (99.99%/100%) and a minuscule 16 errors across both load tests. Nice to have them back and nice to see them put on a spectacular performance after being away for a while.

So how does WPX hosting
deliver such blazingly fast speed?

WPX Hosting uses its custom cloud distribution platform with 25 end-points located in different regions, including, USA, Canada, Netherlands, UK, Germany, France, Bulgaria, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Singapore, China, India, Brazil, and South Africa.

WPX Cloud
ensures that your site loads in a flash from anywhere in the world.

Secondly, WPX recommends the free W3 Total Cache plugin to make your site load faster. It even provides a configuration file with the optimal cache settings. But if you prefer to use WP Rocket for caching, as we do, this is fine too.

importantly, as claimed by WPXhosting, they use “brand new” high-spec SSD
that are deliberately underloaded with accounts and sites to
perform very well under very heavy traffic loads.

In case you
are wondering what’s under the hood of WPXhosting, here’s the lowdown.

WPX Hosting uses standard LAMP configuration to power their servers. LAMP stands for Linux + Apache + MySQL + PHP. In short, WPX hosting offers Apache servers running on Linux and the latest versions of MySQL and PHP (supports 5.6 to 7.3).

Update: WPX Hosting has started deploying LiteSpeed servers that deliver higher speeds and better performance.

Also, you
get the choice of two server locations – the USA and the UK.

SEO benefits of hosting
with WPX

Yes, you read that right. There are a few SEO benefits of signing up with a fast web host. Unless you are living under a rock, you know that Google gives high importance to page load times in their search rankings.

Thanks to the
WPX cloud, you can optimize your page load times to reap the SEO benefits.

The second
benefit of a fast web host is higher user engagement. It is observed that pages
that load under 2 seconds have lower bounce rates, and lower bounce rates imply
higher dwell time, which in turn signals Google that your page is interesting
and useful to the visitors.

Google will
then rank your pages higher than your competitor’s pages that have higher
bounce rates due to slower loading times.

WPX Hosting Uptime Review

You have
already seen that WPX hosting offers fast servers backed by its cloud
distribution, now we will look at its uptime to test whether WPX Hosting is
a reliable managed WordPress host
or not.

WPX Hosting
guarantees 99.95% uptime on all its plans. If you consider a 1-year
period, then this means that your website should be up for at least 525,337
minutes out of 525,600 minutes in the year. This is another way of saying that
the downtime should not exceed 263 minutes or 4 hours and 23 minutes in
a year.

We have been monitoring our uptime using UptimeRobot since we launched PassionWP about 6 months back and have monitored the uptime of our niche site since we migrated it to WPX Hosting in 2017.

And in these 6 months of monitoring PassionWP, it has experienced downtime of only 3 minutes! And this was after a continuous uptime run of 3087 hours or almost 129 days.

WPX hosting uptime test
WPX Hosting Uptime

So, if we
consider a 1-year period, going by our previous 6-month record, our downtime
should be in the range of 6-10 minutes. This is well within the maximum limit
of 263 minutes set by WPX Hosting.

Actually, our monthly uptime is regularly 99.99%, which exceeds the 99.95% uptime guarantee offered by WPX Hosting. we don’t remember even one instance when we had to contact WPX support for an uptime related issue.

WPX hosting uptime review
WPX Hosting Uptime Review

When you
are running an online business, every minute counts. The more time your
website stays offline, the more potential customers you lose. This is precisely
the scenario with budget shared hosting companies.

with WPX Hosting, you can rest assured that your website is up and running
99.99% of the time.

Rock-Solid Security

Did you
know that more than 70% of the most popular WordPress blogs are vulnerable
from a security standpoint, and 41% WordPress sites are hacked due to vulnerability in their hosting platform?

For this reason, you should take WordPress security seriously. Your first line of defence should be your hosting provider since many attacks DDoS and malware attacks occur at the server level.

Does WPX Hosting
offer comprehensive security features? Let’s check out.

WPXhosting offers the following security features 24/7 for all its hosted websites:

  •  Custom and constantly updated WAF (Web Application Firewall)
  • Enterprise-level DDoS protection by Incapsula
  • Full daily system-wide malware scans
  • Full daily system-wide malware/malicious file removal
  • Cleanup of malicious redirects, backdoors and script injections
  • Daily updates to server security rules
  • Individual site audits in specific cases by WPX Malware Team

If we were
to pick three best features from this list, we would pick the Firewall, DDoS
protection, and daily malware scans.

Hey, but
don’t other WordPress hosting companies also offer free malware scans? Yes,
they do. But they don’t remove the detected malware. WPX Hosting removes any
found on your site for free.

How much did you just save here?

If you look at GoDaddy owned Sucuri’s security offerings, the basic protection plan costs $200 a year and includes twice-daily malware scans, malware removal, DDoS mitigation, and a firewall.

You are
getting all these security features with WPX Hosting at no additional cost. Congrats,
you just saved yourself $200 a year. Now, what will you do with this
$200 that WPXhosting just helped you save?

Of course, you will still need to keep your plugins, themes, and WordPress installation updated as part of good security practice. But that doesn’t require any expertise and can be done by WordPress novices in under 60 seconds.

Other security freebies

Free unlimited SSL

Almost all
WordPress hosting companies have now started offering free SSL certificates,
but which company started this trend? It was none other than WPX Hosting that
has been providing free unlimited SSL certificates for all its websites
since 2016.

The free SSL’s are provided courtesy Let’s Encrypt, which is backed by the likes of Google, WordPress (Automattic), and Facebook. If you are running a non-eCommerce website, Let’s Encrypt SSLs are perfect for your needs.

So much did
you manage to save with WPXhosting’s free SSLs? Well, Namecheap’s SSL prices
start from $8.88 per domain per year for the basic SSL and go all the way to
$169 per year.

Even If you
manage just 3 WordPress installations, you have saved $26.64 in one year. And
if you calculate your savings over 10 years, it comes to $266, which is nothing
to sneeze at.

Free 28-day backups

WPX Hosting
offers daily backups with 28-day validity for free. You can even create a
personal backup anytime you wish.

What’s the
difference between automated and personal backups? An automated backup
is system-initiated and does not eat into your hosting storage since it is
stored off-site. It is created once daily and includes the full site backup. It
is stored for up to 28 days.

A personal
, on the other hand, is created by you and stored for only 24 hours,
after which it gets deleted automatically. It is also stored off-site.

How does
this feature stack up against WPX competitors?

Almost all
managed WordPress hosting providers offer free daily automated backups. Kinsta
provides 14 days backup
and 5 manual backups. WP Engine provides 40 backup
points, so we assume that it is a 40-day backup. But it excludes certain
directories and tools data from the backup. It is not clear how many manual
backups they allow their users.

Unlimited Bandwidth and Webmail

I have
already reviewed the ease of use, performance and security features of
WPXhosting; now it’s time to review its other features like bandwidth and

Generous Bandwidth without
Limit on Number of Visitors

One of the
things we dislike about managed WordPress hosting plans is the restrictions on
the number of monthly visits. For instance, Kinsta allows only 20,000
monthly visits and 1 WordPress install on its Starter plan. While WP Engine
allows 25,000 visits on its Startup plan with 1 WordPress install.

Now compare
this to WPX hosting plans.

Their basic plan called the Business plan comes with 100 GB monthly bandwidth with no limits on the number of visitors and allows up to 5 WordPress installs. In fact, their plans have only bandwidth limits and none on the number of monthly visitors. Yes, they also offer a 30-days no questions money-back guarantee on each plan.

WPXhosting plans
WPX Hosting Plans

The unlimited
visitors feature
frees you from constantly worrying about the number of hits
on your website. Additionally, a bandwidth-based plan encourages you to focus
on growing your blog or business
rather than trying to constrict your blog
traffic to within a small box.

How does
this translate into real-world
? We are running two websites with combined monthly visitors
exceeding 50,000 on the Business plan, which costs $25 monthly, and we have not faced any bandwidth issues in
almost 3 years of hosting with WPX.

Imagine for a moment that we were to switch over to
Kinsta. With our current monthly traffic and the number of sites, we would have
to opt for their Business 1 plan costing $100 monthly. The same would cost $115
on WP Engine.

And if you
believe in the saying that “a dollar saved is two dollars earned,” we
managed to save $2550 by choosing WPX hosting over Kinsta and $3060 over WP
Engine in the last 34 months.

Unlimited CDN bandwidth

WPXhosting offers 100 GB bandwidth on its base plan, which should take care of your traffic needs quite easily. Look at our example. With more than 50,000 visits to our niche website, guess how much monthly bandwidth our sites consume on average? Less than 10 GB!

WPX Hosting bandwidth
WPX Hosting – Bandwidth Requirement

How is this possible? Because WPX Hosting does NOT have a CDN bandwidth limit. So, your bandwidth usage is calculated from the server to the CDN and not from the CDN to the end-user.

And since you are using a CDN all your static files are stored or cached on the WPX cloud that distributes them to your website visitors across the globe. This minimizes the need to serve files directly from the server, saving you precious bandwidth.

WPX hosting cloud

if you manage up to 5 websites, the starter
Business plan can easily handle your traffic needs
without the need to
upgrade to higher plans.

To truly
appreciate the benefit of this offering, compare it with Kinsta, which limits
CDN bandwidth to 50 GB per month on its starter plan, and charges overage at

That is why
your bandwidth usage is always low
with WPX Hosting.

Free Webmail

Now let’s
check out their email offerings.  I have
already shared that WPXhosting offers to migrate your webmail account for free
to their WPX webmail.

But what I have not revealed is that WPX Hosting offers multiple email accounts for free, and setting up an email account is a breeze.

WPX hosting - free email
Free Webmail with WPX Hosting

You only have to enter a few details to set up your email account. The DNS records are automatically created once you finish setting up your email account.

WPX hosting email setup
Set up Free Email on WPXhosting

Some of
the advantages of using WPX Hosting email are

  1. You can allot the entire free
    hosting space to your email account or define the exact email space
  2. You can create a catch-all email
    account. For example, if your email is hello@dogworld.com, then an email to woofwoof@dogworld.com will also be delivered to hello@dogworld.com.
  3. You can set up an email forwarder
  4. You can use 3rd party
    email clients like Gmail to receive and send emails

webmail is a WPX-only feature since none of the other major managed
WordPress hosting companies, including, Kinsta and WP Engine, offer free
webmail to their users.

You might
be wondering what’s the big deal in this since a 1-year subscription of
Namecheap’s Private Email service costs just $11.88 per year? But my dear
Watson, this is for their basic Universal plan that offers one measly email
account with a maximum storage of 2 GB.

On the other hand, WPX hosting offers unlimited email accounts for free, and you can decide the storage space for each email account as per your needs. It is surely a big deal.

Does WPX Hosting have a list
of banned plugins?

No, they don’t have any list of banned plugins.

If you look
at Kinsta or WP Engine, they have a long list of banned or disallowed
that you cannot use on your WordPress website. This list includes
some popular plugins like Updraft Plus, Backup Buddy, WP Fastest Cache, W3
Total Cache, WP-Optimize, Broken Link Checker, Yet Another Related Posts Plugin,

This is funny. First, managed WordPress hosts like Kinsta and WP Engine restrict plans by the number of monthly visitors, and then they disallow the use of many useful plugins. So, what exactly are you paying for with these hosts?

WPX Hosting
does not restrict your choices to select-plugins only. You can install any
unless it is “nulled” or pirated, which are very reasonable
restrictions since you cannot expect support for issues caused by nulled or
pirated plugins.

WPX Hosting Support Review

differentiates an excellent WordPress web hosting company from an outstanding
one is its support and commitment to its users.

Outstanding support, among other offerings, is the stand-out feature of WPXhosting. They not only promise 37-seconds response times to their live chat support requests but also deliver on it. On top of this, they also offer a “Fixed for You” guarantee by which they guarantee to get at an offline version of your website back up no matter how badly you messed up your site.

Once you log in to the control panel, a support chat window will pop up where you can shoot off your query.

personal experience, we have never encountered an instance when their support

WPX Hosting Review Conclusion – Does it Pay for Itself?

I started off this WPX Hosting review with the question that whether a WPXhosting subscription pays for itself and whether it offers performance at an affordable price? Now, we can answer this question with finality.

To really
appreciate the savings you realize with a WPX Hosting subscription, let us compare
the features
offered by WPX Hosting, Kinsta and, WP Engine on their most
basic plans.

Plan Features WPX Hosting (Business) Kinsta
WP Engine
Monthly hosting cost $25 $30 $35
Max. number of WordPress installs 5 1 1

List of banned plugins No such list Extensive list Extensive list
Automated backup retention 28 days 14 days 40 days
Money-back Guarantee 30 days 30 days 60 days

However, most users will need more than just one WordPress install. So, let
us assume a minimum requirement of 2 WordPress installs; then, you will require
the following plans from these managed WordPress hosts.

WPX Hosting
– Business ($25)

Kinsta –
Pro ($60)

WP Engine –
Growth ($115)

Now let’s
say you’re already managing a WordPress site with 50,000 visits and wish to
migrate to a managed WordPress host or if you consider website traffic
2 years down the road. Which plan would you now need?

WPX Hosting
– Business ($25)

Kinsta – Business
1 ($100)

WP Engine –
Growth ($115)

You can see that even though there isn’t much difference in prices between the three companies on their base plans but once you factor in a realistic number of WordPress installs and traffic volume, WPX hosting is clearly the most cost-effective managed WordPress hosting provider among the three.

WPX hosting price comparison
Cost remains uniform with WPX Hosting

The above
graph shows that WPX Hosting costs remains the same whether you are running 1
or 5 WordPress installations while it steeply rises on Kinsta and WP Engine.

if you need features such as malware scanning and removal, DDoS protection, Web
Application Firewall, and Webmail, your costs will skyrocket with hosts like
Kinsta and WP Engine while you don’t have to pay even a penny more with
WPX Hosting.

So, the answer to the question of whether a WPX Hosting subscription pays for itself is a resounding yes! This is also how we managed to save 1000’s of dollars over 3 years by staying clear of costly hosting companies that delivered the same or lower performance as WPX Hosting and saved on separate services for website security, webmail, and SSL that come bundled with WPX Hosting.
