Top 5 Hosting Advantages with Pronto

SPEED
 Pronto: Fastest WordPress host 5 years in a row
 WP Engine: Slower

Powered by Kinsta, Pronto hosting services offer its clients 20% faster load times. Conversely, WP Engine, due to its high volume of clients, has overcrowded servers and enforces CPU limits on shared hosting.

UPTIME MONITORING
 Pronto: Included on all plans
 WP Engine: Only available on Premium plans

Pronto sites are equipped with a self-healing PHP feature, and we monitor all sites on our infrastructure for uptime 720 times per day. On WP Engine, site monitoring is only available on Premium and Enterprise plans.

FIREWALL PROTECTION
 Pronto: Free with Cloudflare integration
 WP Engine: Add on from $30 per month

Pronto customers enjoy a free Cloudflare integration powered with enterprise-level firewall and DDoS protection on all plans. WP Engine plans don’t include firewall protection unless you purchase their Global Edge Security add-on.

DATA CENTERS
 Pronto: 35 locations
 WP Engine: 15 locations

Pronto has 35 data centers (and counting). This means you can choose the data center that makes sense for your website with no extra fees or hidden charges.

WORDPRESS UPDATES
 Pronto: Monthly updates by humans
 WP Engine: Automated updates

Pronto support agents take care of your site’s backend, updating plugins and ensuring your data is secure at all times. WP Engine instead automates these critical updates, leaving room for unexpected errors.

Can you afford WP Engine’s hands-off maintenance approach?

WP Engine’s hands-off security and uptime monitoring will leave your website at risk of sudden downtime, unwanted site access, and potential attacks. The result of each of these threats can cost you up to hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars.

Pronto, on the other hand, prioritizes uptime monitoring, premium security measures, and updates by humans.

While you run your business, our WordPress specialists will keep your site updated and secure at all times — at no extra cost.
