WP Engine is the best host for WordPress, that’s our opinion, to learn why read one of our many blogs on the topic. As WP Engine partners, we only build and support websites hosted on this platform. Here’s how you can sign up for a new WP Engine account and grant access to us to migrate your website over.
Please complete all steps including logging in to WP Engine for the first time, and adding us as a User to your new account. Do this on a desktop or laptop computer.
Sign-up for a new account. Just click here to begin, this link will also activate a special discount for you. Now it’s time to Pick a Plan. Typically you’ll only need the Startup Plan (if you have only one WordPress site) or choose one of the larger plans if you have more than one website. You likely won’t need the fancy extras like Content Performance, GeoTarget and Multisite, we can always add these later if required. Make sure you enter your contact and payment information, and choose a Data Centre closest to your target audience (for example, Australia).
Once you have signed up, you’ll need to login to your shiny new WP Engine account at my.wpengine.com and add us as a user. If you have not received your account password by email, you can reset it from the login page. Click on Users > Account Users on the left hand side, then Add User in the top right, enter the name and email address email@example.com and select FULL access (no billing).
That’s it. We’ll be automatically notified once you’ve added us, and can get started on your migration.
Whilst you are waiting, here’s a short read on why you need to get serious about your WordPress host.
