A high quality WordPress website hosting platform for small businesses and solopreneurs.

We have seen websites hosted on many different hosting platforms over the years. Some good, some terrible...but very few what I would call "Business Grade".

WPX is a business based in Bulgaria. On the surface, while they have continually grown and improved their offering over the years the business appears to be a smaller, self-funded style business. Many people see small as good and nimble and less bureaucratic.

Our other hosting recommendations are WP Engine and their now wholly owned subsidiary Flywheel. This is a substantial venture backed business which may be seen as better funded and perhaps more financially secure. It is based in the USA.

Note: These are 2 personal observations and if financial security of the hosting business is important to you, please do your own financial due diligence to make your decision about which hosting company to go with.

NOTE: The above link to WPX is an affiliate link and will earn The Quantum (WA) Trust trading as Onlinemporia a commission if you signup to the services. This adds no cost to you but provides some funding to Quantum which lets us continue doing research to find quality recommended tools and resources for you.

Independent WPX Review by ThriveThemes

Normally, I would expand on the more factual information above from our own experiences. While we endeavour to primarily add product and service offerings to our Resources page that we personally use or have used, we will also add some that come from trusted 3rd parties. Our own hosting is currently with Flywheel, which is a long standing relationship because they had Servers closer to our operations. WPX now have servers in Australia also, so for us, we are re-assessing.

Shane Melaugh from ThriveThemes is one such trusted party (we use ThriveThemes products extensively) and he gives some insights into their decision process to use WPX in the following video. Note: he refers to Traffic Planet Hosting, which was the name of WPX before rebranding.
