Bluehost vs WP Engine, how to choose the right host for your website

In the next few weeks, I’m re-launching my website. Along with a new look and feel, I also switched website hosts in the process. This was because my current website host just wasn’t getting the job done for my business.

Since it is important for businesses to choose the best web hosting, I wanted to give you a comparison between two website hosts, Bluehost vs WP Engine and which one I ultimately settled on  for my business and why I chose them.

The situation

I made the decision to switch website hosts because the company I was using was not meeting the requirements that my business needed.

For example, here are some of the issues my website encountered over the past year.

  • Unexpected downtime
  • Throttling
  • Lost data
  • Slow site load times
  • Poor customer service

If you are a casual blogger, the debate between Bluehost vs WP Engine probably doesn’t matter as much to you, but I spend a lot of time blogging and making tweaks to my site because it is a main source for running my business.

As a result, I need my website to be up, I need it to be fast, and I need it to be reliable.

Does website hosting matter?

It does and it doesn’t. It depends on the type of website you are running.

If you are a casual blogger who doesn’t blog very often or isn’t running a business, you can go with any hosting company, provided you are prepared to deal with slowness and potential down time.

On the otherhand, if you run a business and you blog a lot and want to get more people reading your content and eventually buying products and services, you want to be sure to choose the best web hosting possible.

When you have to constantly worry about whether your website is running and answer questions from customers about why your site isn’t available, this can put a lot of unnecessary strain on your business and your relationships with customers.

Too much of this and you will find yourself spending more time fixing things instead of creating things. This can put you further from achieving your business goals.

I wanted to share with you the process I took on choosing the right host for my website and how you can do the same.

Here is a comparison I put together on Bluehost vs WP Engine along with details on why I made the switch (which helped my business out tremendously).
