Aside from highlighting parts of these stories, the team spent quite a bit of time discussing WP-Engine’s significant price increase over the past week.
This led to an overall discussion of web hosting and the wars between different hosts. The quality difference between specialty WordPress hosting and lower priced shared hosting products. It was agreed that low-priced services (less than $30 a month) will only work for so long. As your business grows and website traffic grows, you need to budget for premium hosting that frequently costs $100 or more monthly.
Requirements for premium, managed, WordPress hosting are particularly important for large ecommerce stores, membership sites, and learning management platforms.
