Although its ordering process seems to be working, I do worry that this provider stopped posting to Twitter in 2015 and I never received a reply to my test support ticket. Otherwise, and if it wasn't for the high prices, Wizzpress could be an ideal WordPress host.

Overview

wizzpress main

Wizzpress is an American provider of primarily WordPress hosting from the Planet data center in Dallas and Houston, Texas. It’s not clear when this company was founded, but it joined Twitter in 2010 (so might have been established then) and stopped posting in 2015 (so it could have ceased trading then). The English-language Wizzpress website presents its prices in U.S. dollars.

Features and Ease of Use

Wizzpress provides three WordPress hosting plans: Personal, Freelance, and Agency. Which plan you pick will depend on the size of your website and the expected number of visitors.

The Personal plan provides one WordPress installation, 250 GB monthly bandwidth, 5 GB of storage, and allows up to 25,000 visitors per month. The Freelance plan allows 5 WordPress installations, 1 TB monthly bandwidth, 20 GB of storage, and up to 100,000 visitors per month. The top-end Agency plan comes with 20 WordPress installations, 2 TB monthly bandwidth, 70 GB of storage, and allows up to 400,000 visitors per month.

With all plans, you get these features:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Daily backups
  • Free migration
  • Servers preconfigured for WordPress
  • cPanel

Wizzpress doesn’t just provide the package and leave you high and dry. Its team of experts will install WordPress and its plugins, so you can simply log in and add your content. All the plans support the popular cPanel control panel that lets you manage your website files, backup intervals, and more.

All plans apart from the lowest one allow you to add a Content Delivery Network (CDN) at extra cost. This will improve your page loading speeds and will protect you against some kinds of cyberattacks. 

Pricing and Support

Wizzpress

Wizzpress’s prices are high, but they get cheaper if you choose a longer billing cycle (up to three years) rather than paying monthly. You can pay by PayPal or bank transfer, and you get a 30-day money-back guarantee if you’re a new customer.

You can contact customer support via ticket, except I couldn’t, because my pre-sales test ticket went unanswered. Fortunately, for self-support, there is a well-stocked knowledge base.

Bottom line on Wizzpress

Wizzpress would be an ideal provider of WordPress hosting if its plan prices weren’t so high. However, more concerning for me are the facts that they didn’t respond to my test support ticket, and they stopped posting to Twitter in 2015.

Pros

  • 30-day money-back guarantee
  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Pre-installed WordPress with plugins
  • Daily backups

Cons

  • Only WordPress hosting plans
  • Unresponsive customer support
