So our colleagues up the road in Austin, Texas have a classic engine. We prefer the Performance Engineering associated with autos like the Ferrari. The key difference is the classic comes with all kinds of limited capabilities. For example, at WPEngine, you don't get all the standard accessories, like their hosting, it comes with no Email included. Now when you're shopping for hosting, you think, well email is so important, I don't want to have to pay for separate hosting and then configure my domain email to my host. But at WPEngine, that's necessary - for quadruple plus the price... Here at Browserweb we like Super Cars and Super Standard Accessories like Email and Super Fast Web Hosting without any Super Charger add-on packages. We're reviewing our Web Hosting Page Speed League for the final time in 2018. Coming in at 11 on the mobile page speed league by Browserweb is No Engine. At 22.6s your WordPress site is going to lag like a Dial Up Computer with AOL Compuserve bleeping sounds in the background. Classic stuff indeed from WPEngine. Browserweb Web Hosting is Invincible. #1 Page Speed for Mobile Devices since we started testing.

Apparently this is a $20 per month add-on at WPEngine. It's free at Browserweb. Here's how to add Multisite to WordPress;
It’s a cool place to work
WPEngine is just up the road from Houston, it's head office based in beautiful Austin.
Austin is renowned for it's startups and tech vibes. Millennials flock to gain work in the city, primarily because of the culture and working for tech companies comes with a lot of perks.
WPEngine fall into this category. However, as an investor backed startup that just obtained another recent chunk of investor cash, results are required.
In this case, the consumer is paying for the lavish working benefits with fees and add-on features that make this WordPress Hosting company an expensive choice.
