The availability of a website is measured by the percentage of a year in which the website is publicly accessible and reachable via the Internet. This is different from measuring the uptime of a system. Uptime refers to the system itself being online. Uptime does not take into account being able to reach it as in the event of a network outage. A hosting provider’s Service Level Agreement (SLA) may include a certain amount of scheduled downtime per year in order to perform maintenance on the systems. This scheduled downtime is often excluded from the SLA timeframe, and needs to be subtracted from the Total Time when availability is calculated. Depending on the wording of an SLA, if the availability of a system drops below that in the signed SLA, a hosting provider often will provide a partial refund for time lost. How downtime is determined changes from provider to provider, therefore reading the SLA is imperative. Not all providers release uptime statistics. Most hosting providers will guarantee at least 99.9% uptime which will allow for 43m of downtime per month, or 8h 45m of downtime per year.
Finally, a fourth less common option is co-located hosting, which enables you to purchase your own server and, while it will be kept in the vendor’s data center, you’ll have complete control over it so you can install anything you need onto it.
There are no contracts and you are free to cancel at any time. Cancellation of a dedicated server within the first monthly cycle will result in a $25 set up fee being retained from any eligible pro rated refunds.
This is great and everything but showing “promo price” is entirely meaningless to anyone thinking of having a real website that will stay up for some time. What are the actual prices, after the “promo”?
With a shared hosting plan, you are renting space on a server that you share with other website owners. This also means you’re sharing resources like bandwidth, memory, and processing power. This can be a problem, because a web host company typically supports hundreds, even thousands, of websites on a single server. Most of these websites will get very little traffic, allowing those who do see higher levels of traffic to use the resources they need. Nevertheless, there are no guarantees that you will get the resources necessary to support your website.
WPEngine is a managed WordPress hosting company, I don’t really know how they infrastructure looks like, probably for lower plans is still shared hosting, however due to the pricing difference, is hard to compare with companies like hostgator/siteground .
Clustered hosting: having multiple servers hosting the same content for better resource utilization. Clustered servers are a perfect solution for high-availability dedicated hosting, or creating a scalable web hosting solution. A cluster may separate web serving from database hosting capability. (Usually web hosts use clustered hosting for their shared hosting plans, as there are multiple benefits to the mass managing of clients).
The times below are the average times it took for us to speak to a human after dialling their technical support phone numbers at various times in a week. For consistency, all of the calls were made within ~30 minutes of each other.
As the amount of users jumped up the whole system got erratic with a 4.9sec load time when it hit 30+ users. The platform wasn’t scaling quick enough cover the load and 4.9sec is an eternity online. I can guarantee you all of the 30+ users having to wait almost 5sec would have clicked away. This alone should have made them come last. But it didn’t just happen once but twice during the scaling process (seriously?).

Shared hosting is the common entry-level point for those new to WordPress. It’s where a single host parcels up sections of its servers to multiple websites. Everything runs side-by-side and each site can only access its own segment of the server.
