Why is WP Bolt a better WPX Hosting Alternative?
Although both WPX Hosting and WP Bolt are WordPress managed hosting services, WPX is built on an older-style model of customers sharing their servers with other customers, similar to Bluehost and HostGator.
WP Bolt is built on 4 of the leading cloud hosting providers (Linode, DigitalOcean, UpCloud, and Vultr), and each customer has their own Virtual Private Server (VPS) in a data center of their choice.
With a VPS from WP Bolt, you have full access to all of the resources that you’ve purchased, which means quicker loading times and no risk of another customer’s site on the same server causing your site to slow down.
More Data Centers
WP Bolt also allows you to choose from 23 Global Data Center Locations from our 4 cloud hosting partners, rather than just 3 options with WPX (Chicago, London or Sydney). This means that you can host your site closer to your customers, including many locations in Asia, Europe, Canada, and all over the USA.
Better Value with More Inclusions
At WP Bolt, our plans offer much better value than WPX. Our plans start from just $12 per month, which is less than half of WPX’s Starter plan, and we allow you to host up to 10 sites on that plan, double the number of sites that WPX offers on their Starter Plan. We also include 10x more bandwidth (1 Terabyte of data, vs just 100 GB with WPX).
Designed for WooCommerce and Membership Sites
WPX’s service is geared towards small publishers and bloggers, and the resources allocated to each account reflect that. WP Bolt’s WordPress VPS plans offer much more scalability and flexibility for people who want to run more demanding and dynamic sites such as WooCommerce stores or membership sites.
We clearly show you the specifications of the server that you’re getting, and it’s easy to upgrade to get more CPU cores or more RAM to power even the most demanding of WordPress sites. On the other hand, WPX doesn’t tell you anything about the server specifications or resource limitations of the hosting account that you’re getting.
