WordPress Hosting Plans
Our high performance WP Engine WordPress server comes fully loaded and ready for business. Don’t settle for less.
Dedicated vs. Shared Hosting
The major difference between dedicated and shared hosting is the number of websites on one server. With shared hosting, the server is split depending on the number of websites sharing it, and usually minimal to no configuration options. Dedicated hosting means you have your own server, and full access to its resources.
Considering their main difference, it makes sense that dedicated hosting is more flexible and secure. Opposed to shared hosting, you can scale your resources based on your needs – such as website traffic – to ensure your site is performing at its best.
Additionally, your own site’s security is not dependent on whether other sites on the server are insecure. With a dedicated server, you have total control over its content, so you can better protect against hacks and data loss.
CDN (Content Delivery Network)
What is CDN?
How does a CDN work? A CDN is a collection of servers located all around the world. When a browser loads static content, the request is automatically routed to the server geographically closest to the browser. This helps the content load much more quickly. In addition, because your content is loaded from many servers in separate locations, bursts of traffic are less likely to cause issues, because the burst is spread out over hundreds of servers, rather than just one.
WP Engine offers the ability to put all of your static content on a CDN with little to no configuration required. We manage distributing the content and rewriting URLs in the code. We give you control over enabling or disabling the CDN as needed. In short, you just write your blog as usual and we transparently make your blog faster and more scalable.
The WP Engine platform has an automatic backup feature to help ensure that your data is kept safe. These daily backup points can be accessed by visiting your WP Engine User Portal. These backup points contain your environment’s database and all theme, plugin, uploads, and core files.
You have the ability to:
- Create a Backup Point Manually through your User Portal
- Roll Back to a Previous Backup Point through your User Portal
Threat Detection and Blocking
Our platform dynamically inspects traffic, looking for new kinds of attacks, or patterns of requests from certain locations that indicate nefarious activity, and we block many of those attacks automatically. Our rules evolve constantly. We witness traffic across our entire network of customers, serving over 2 billion hits a day, and those learnings are inherited automatically by all of our customers. We block over 150 million bad requests every month, and we’re constantly adding new rules as attackers evolve their tactics.
Your WordPress site is secured with HTTPS
Over the past few years, Google has increasingly stressed the importance of HTTPS encryption for websites, going as far as to mark certain HTTP pages as “not secure” if they contain data fields for things such as passwords or credit card information.
Non-HTTPS status can also affect a website’s search ranking, and earlier this year, Google announced, with the release of Google Chrome 68 in July, that all HTTP pages will be marked as “not secure” in an effort to phase out the older, less secure web protocol.
While this will help make the internet a safer place, it will also create some issues for site owners who have yet to make the switch. Google Chrome handles the vast majority of worldwide browser traffic, and sites that show up as “not secure” face a potentially massive dip in traffic.
Let’s Encrypt certificates provide the same level of security as paid certificates and offer the same HTTPS protection. Because these certificates are fully automated, WP Engine will also automatically renew them for you after you set them up.

Learn more about HTTPS
If a website address begins with HTTPS instead of HTTP, it indicates that all the data you send to and receive from that website is encrypted. In that case, even if it the data were to be intercepted by an unauthenticated third party, they wouldn’t be able to decipher it. Read more about SSL Certificates

More than just clients…
“The best part of my job is getting to know my clients, gaining their trust, and providing the service they deserve. Below is a collection of kind words from some of my clients.”
We have really enjoyed working Jon Sailer at BPro over the years. His quick turnaround on projects and overall efficiency is very impressive. We have appreciated his attention to detail and accuracy while completely revamping our website.
Creating a new website is a daunting task, but with Jon from BPro at our side it was almost effortless! He was courteous, prompt and professional in his services provided to us, plus continues to provide the “extra-mile” service whenever we need it. He provides step by step instructions with screen shots referring to the subject matter, assuring we are doing it correctly. He always informs us of the updates he makes and checks to make sure we are able to still access the site and make our changes as needed.
After many years of dealing with frustrating web hosting companies, and continuing fee increases, I decided to look for a different option. I consider it one of my luckier days when I was referred to Jon Sailer by a business owner in the Pierre area. I have been client of Jon Sailer for several years. His expertise was used to design a new site, redesigning several others, setting up webmail accounts, designing on-line newsletters, managing on-line payment options with funds transfers, and efficiently posting numerous important rules and regulations changes in English and German. And, he handles everything quickly and efficiently in a very calm, patient manner. I couldn’t be more pleased.
