WPOven is an Indian-based web host founded in 2012. It specializes in managed WordPress hosting, among other services, and operates through data centers in the U.S.A., Canada, the Netherlands, the U.K., Germany, India, Japan, Singapore, and Australia.
The WPOven website has a sleek design and is well organized and informative. It is only available in English, and all prices are in U.S. dollars.
Features and Ease of Use
WPOven offers five different plans – Hobby, Personal, Professional, Business, and Agency. It’s clear from the names which plan is suitable for which purpose. The plans vary mainly in storage and monthly bandwidth. However, all five share the following set of features:
- Custom user-friendly control panel
- SSD storage
- Free SSL certificate
- Free website migration
- Website staging
- Automatic daily backups
- CDN-ready servers
You can also create unlimited staging sites where it makes a separate temporary copy of your website. You can perform all the necessary edits without taking the original website offline. Once your edits are complete, they take effect on the original website instantly.
You’ll get SSD storage with all five plans. SSD performs much faster and is more stable than traditional HDD storage, reflecting on your website’s loading speed, stability, and overall performance.
WPOven has a custom control panel with all its plans. Even though I prefer cPanel or Plesk, this control panel has a user-friendly interface so you can manage all aspects of your website without advanced technical skills.

Pricing and Support
I consider WPOven’s prices average. It’s not the most expensive managed WordPress host in the market, but it’s not the cheapest either. All plans come in monthly or yearly billing cycles with a 14-day money-back guarantee.
The accepted payment methods are PayPal and credit/debit cards.
As previously mentioned, the WPOven website is quite informative and resourceful. It includes a comprehensive tutorial section (knowledgebase), a blog, and an FAQ.
If you don’t find what you’re looking for, you can always contact customer support via live chat, email, and support ticket. Help is available 24/7.
I instantly connected to a live chat agent who answered all my questions and seemed quite knowledgeable.
