WP Engine has many features that make a great hosting solution:
- the admin panel isn't cPanel but nevertheless it's extremely easy to use, even if you're not tech-savvy
- backup is done automatically, in daily intervals, which always comes in handy, especially when you have to make some large adjustments to your WordPress site
- support is fast, polite and very helpful
Sadly, WP Engine lacks one very important things - server-response time is so-so when the traffic is low, and pretty bad when the server has a lot of traffic. When you want to optimize your WordPress site for speed, this is an obstacle you just can't overcome and your PageSpeed Insight scores are stuck at mediocre, at best.
Another thing I was unhappy with is their caching - it works OK, but not great. However it prevents you from installing your own caching solutions for WordPress like W3 Total Cache, WP Fastest Cache etc., and that was a deal-breaker for me.
Too bad because WP Engine was one of the go-to hosting solutions for WordPress in 2018. I hope they will resolve these problems as soon as possible because, in 2019, if you have a "heavy" WordPress site I would NOT recommend WP Engine as your hosting solution.

Best host for WordPress, Great Speed and reliability. 24/7 Support.The only downside is they are very expensive with compare to other hosting companies.

If you are looking for a web host who are masters of Wordpress optimisation, then these are the hosts for you. Their pricing is NOT cheap. However if you are hosting a highly successful Wordpress site, either to power a woocommerce store or run an affiliate marketing blog, with high volumes of traffic then this could be a recommend option for peace of mind.
Extensive automatic backups in place, so you never have to worry about loosing any blog post again, or worry about your site being destroyed from a bad plugin update.
If your site isn't built upon Wordpress then this host will be of no interest to you. Their support team are Wordpress Hosting Ninjas, and are readily available to help with your needs.

I would highly recommend WPEngine to anyone who is wanting to design their website but doesn't have the experience necessary to use a traditional web hosting provider. While the pricing isn't really what I would call competitive, the features and ease-of-use WPEngine offers to beginners is undeniably the best in the web hosting business. WPEngine has mastered the art of creating a point-and-click world which enables beginners to create websites that are both professional and unique. It also offers a level of security, spam protection, and backups that is to be quite envied by many other standard web hosting providers. While I would not recommend WPEngine to seasoned professionals, who are likely to feel bored and restricted quite quickly, it tops my list of web hosting providers to recommend to anyone wanting to start out with DIY web design and web hosting.

I've used WP Engine for many years. Excellent performance, excellent support, high availability, and fair price to value have kept me there.
We had a high-traffic site on WPEngine - and keeping in mind that we like them and they've been extraordinary, the site was really slow. They did not handle our traffic load very well at all. it never crashes, so I guess that's good.
