The easiest and best way for doctors to create a website and blog is by using WordPress. But where do you host it?

I’ve worked with most major website hosting providers and had a long-standing relationship with Bluehost. But because of reliability issues with Bluehost, in 2020 I’ve moved exclusively to WP Engine.

Here are five reasons WP Engine provides the best website hosting for doctors:

1). Reliability

WP Engine has excellent reliability, with an uptime average of 99.9%. It doesn’t get much better than that.

2). Support

They offer 24/7 support and everyone I’ve talked to has been based in the US. This is a big advantage in my view, especially when working through an issue.

They really had a chance to shine when we were moving several clients over from Bluehost. I have been nothing but impressed with their support.

3). WordPress

I’m a big believer in WordPress and recommend that all doctors use it when creating their websites.

As the WP Engine name suggests, they are committed to supporting WordPress. That’s not something that can be said of the more mainstream hosting companies.

There are currently over 100,000 WordPress websites hosted on WP Engine.

4). Better Performance

When it comes to SEO, server performance matters. WP Engine gives you much more than the big and cheap hosting companies, which will only benefit your results.

Additionally, WP Engine provides automatic updates and maintenance, which means your site is going to be more secure and stable.

5). Competitive Pricing

Depending on the plan you select, WP Engine is starts at $30.00 per month.

There are certainly cheaper options out there, but WP Engine gives you much more in terms of performance and reliability without being the most expensive option.
