A WCTO Gift from WP Engine: Free Hosting for Life!

WP Engine

The following post comes from our sponsors at WP Engine. Don’t forget to check out our Q&A with WP Engine co-founder & WCTO 2012 presenter Ben Metcalfe!

Hey there Toronto!

We’re really excited to join you all for WordCamp Toronto! We’ll be sending a couple of our team members, including Canada’s own Ben Metcalfe, one of WP Engine’s two co-founders!

What’s cooler than a cow photobombing a horse stuck in a fence?

Free Managed Hosting for life. That’s what.

Come looking for our table at the event to get yourself free hosting for life, AND we’ll throw in an incredibly soft 100% Cotton WP Engine T-Shirt for, well, free. Yeah, free hosting isn’t as a cool as a t-shirt, we know. But seriously, we want to give you free hosting on our rock-solid, super fast, premium WordPress hosting platform.

No catch. This is WP Engine’s way of thanking the WordPress community for all that you do. We wouldn’t have the opportunity to be a company providing premium hosting without every single member of this community.

For your account, WP Engine will automatically manage your WordPress upgrades, and also guarantee the security of your site because we protect it with our industry-leading security measures. We keep your site safe from malware and hackers. We also automatically back-up your files and database on every day.

Is WP Engine fast? Yes. We hand-built a proprietary WordPress-based EverCache system that delivers pages in under 15 seconds. EverCache is a combination of proxy servers, database, disk caching, and content delivery networks to serve your media incredibly quickly. WP Engine is the only hosting company that also offers a fully-managed CDN service as well.

The best part of WP Engine isn’t the technology, thought. It’s our people. Our support staff are all WordPress experts, so when you need help troubleshooting your site’s hosting, you know that you’ve got knowledgeable support that will promptly respond to keep your site up and running.

Ok, phew. /Marketing Pitch.

If you have questions about your site, or just want to chat with us about WordPress while we get the right size of a t-shirt for you, just stop by and say hey!

Looking forward to talking then!

  1. Did they really intend to brag about pages loading in under 15 seconds? Thats a shockingly low bar to set, even with horribly large sites. Maybe they meant 1.5s? Still high but a nice guarantee. 15ms would be impressive enough to justify the paragraph 😉

  2. Hey, I was really interested in WP Engine, and this sounds like a great way to try it out for myself!

    Just wondering – does the EverCache delivery include nodes in Canada? If so, which cities? It’d be nice to have my WordPress content delivered to my site visitors from a nearby location.

    Thanks, and I’ll see you at WordCamp!

  3. What’s Cooler Than Free Web Hosting?

    I’ll tell you. It’s to get a free ticket to the event. I’ll trade you. You can have my free web hosting if you give me a ticket to the event. I’ll even pay for the ticket if you want. I just want to be there and all the tickets are sold out.

    Come on. We’ve all been to the rodeo before. Even when something is sold out, there’s always a few tickets lying around. Is my name on one of them???

  4. Oh, and did I tell you “I love you guys?” I do really. Well, in a uh, well, er, uh, “spittin’, swearing, let’s watch football kind of way.”

    Anyone find a ticket lying around yet?
