$29 Entry Point Plan, "Staging Area” (website cloning & testing function), “One Click” Restore Points, premium caching (Evercache), Offers a "Free Restoration" if Data or Blog is Compromised


Questionable Flexibility With Themes Outside the "Copyblogger" Family

Lack of Versatility In Plans, Expensive, Not Ideal For Small Startups, Individual Bloggers or Small Businesses

Questionable CDN (Entry point plan does not have CDN; Higher tier plans use MaxCDN located in USA, europe, and asia)


WebSynthesis is ideal for anyone looking reliable WordPress hosting for an affordable price, impressive scalability and have built-in CDN support.

PressLabs is ideal for medium-large organizations. Smaller organizations or businesses should look elsewhere for a lower entry cost.

WP Engine offers a lot of flexibility in their hosting plans that will appeal to both large and small organizations.
