WPX Hosting Customer Testimonial by Jay


Hi, this is Jay from ratracefabric.com. We help people quit their jobs and create a location independent lifestyle. Recently I decided to switch my web hosting provider into something more professional because I wanted to do this professionally and I wanted my site to reflect that. I’ve been using Namecheap for a long time, which is a decent provider. Speed is average over there, customer support is, you know, it’s okay, it works compared to Bluehost and other sites like that, which are basically successful only because they pay so much to see their affiliates. Namecheap is actually quite good, but it’s not good enough. I found myself constantly fighting with cPanel, my WordPress installations always broke on my domains, the hosting dashboard is kind of confusing, slow, not very easy to use, stuff like this that made web hosting feel like a drag and you would think that it doesn’t matter that much, like it’s just a web host, like you’re supposed to make your website and then just you know do your business right. Why would you care so much about a web host? But that’s exactly the problem. I find myself fighting with the web hosting all the time. My WordPress was slow, the dashboard was hard to use and I found myself spending too much time on the web hosting itself, rather than focusing on my business. And I want to do that, I want to focus on my business not the web hosting. That sounds like a cliche at this point but it’s true. It was my first realistic touch into this cliché. So, because Shane Melaugh from Thrive Themes and other marketing fame recommended WPX Hosting, so I have figured might as well try that and at first glance the prices for WPX Hosting seemed to be a bit higher than Namecheap and these other providers, but then I started reading the fine print on the page. There was a part about real bandwidth, what you actually need and little things that kind of showed me that WPX Hosting actually care about making a good work per site. They actually care about making your site work and I’m intrigued, so I made the purchase at that point. The first thing that came to my mind when I got my first site up is that it’s fast. It’s like ridiculously fast. I mean it’s not like 0.1 seconds faster than some other service that you can measure with a speed test or whatnot, but it’s like ‘Holy Wow!’ I’ve never seen a WordPress dashboard load up this fast. This is sort of speed I want from my website. Regarding that the WPX has a custom sort of dashboard for their hosting dashboard, it’s simple and it works. It has all the things you need and pretty much nothing else. So, there’s no guessing, no arguing with some FTP protocol, or trying to change some file and something like that. It’s just, you know, click a button and it works, which is perfect for me. I just want my WordPress sites to work and if it doesn’t work, you just ask support and it’s done with. About the support, I mean incredible stuff. I had some problem with migrating my domains from the last provider to WPX and it’s like I ask something from support and they get back to me and in minutes. It’s like ridiculous how do you even do that. I usually so used to not using support, because usually the answer they give comes days later with some cryptic, unhelpful response. Here anything you’re confused about, you just ask and they give you a response. It’s so easy. About the migration, I migrated a couple of websites and that confuses the hell out of me and it’s a bit of an intimidating process, but I think WPX made it as simple as it could be. Maybe it could be easier, I don’t know, but they asked very precise questions. Some of the questions were a bit complicated, but I just didn’t answer those and they did it anyway and the thing is, the parts that they were confused about, they asked me to verify that. Like, okay, are you sure you want this, like this, like this? And I`m like ‘Yes!’ and they did it exactly like that and I like that, I appreciate that. Then, there’s free SSL. I was never made aware of this, I was paying for my SSL back there and I’m not doing it anymore and now I have SSL on all my sites, which is nice. So, if you’re still on the fence about choosing which hosting to go for, just go for WPX. If you’re looking at the price and it’s slightly higher, than whatever other thing you’re looking at, that price is going to pay itself back so quickly when you don’t have to suffer these headaches about support, or chasing control panel settings, or trying to figure out something which just doesn’t work. I mean you’re going to save so much money, because you can focus on your business and grow your business and make more money that way. That was my quick review about WPX Hosting. As you can see, I’m quite excited about it and I would like to use it in the future as well. So, thanks! Ciao!
