I haven’t personally used WP Engine, but have heard some great things about the service. I think this rather large round of funding backs that up, and seems interesting for such a specialized hosting company. Obviously this speaks to the popularity of WordPress as well, which is always exciting. Maybe if this site ever outgrows its current shared hosting plan, I’ll look at WP Engine to see if it could support my needs, but right now it’s a bit pricey for what I’m doing.
Do you have any experience with them? What do you think of this round of funding?
