We’ve been using Flywheel for our own website and our clients websites for over a year now so I thought I’d write a quick entry about our experiences with them.
We chose Flywheel for our own site after spending hours researching other Managed WordPress Hosting Companies. Impressed with their features and value, we jumped aboard and have no regrets! We’ve been especially impressed with the above and beyond customer service. Portland Computerworks has migrated several of our clients sites to Flywheel, as they offer free migrations and the process is painless.
In a few cases, these sites had been previously hacked, infected with Malware and banned from Google. Not only did Flywheel resolve the problem at no charge, but in one case they took it a step further and even re-submitted the site to Google for us!
We were looking for a hosting company that was going to make our sites load really fast, as we don’t want our customers waiting for our page to load (Google also gives your site a couple points for fast loading times on the SEO side). They have a unique dashboard that allows adding collaborators on the site, show statistics, manage add-ons, backups, etc.
Previously, we were paying almost $100/year for an SSL Certificate. Flywheel includes this with your hosting plan! Truly a great deal.
Flywheel keeps WordPress up to date and handles Malware Scanning and Security as well. This can cost a lot of money as add-ons with other providers.
Overall, we’ve been very pleased with Flywheel and I look forward to bringing more clients over to the platform.
