Namecheap is one of the best platforms for domain registration. They provide domains at affordable prices along with many services.
Namecheap has hosting services too & one of them is EasyWP Hosting. It is Managed WordPress Hosting.
If you are looking to buy one of the EasyWP plans, here is EasyWP Review for you to help you decide whether to buy or not.
I bought & tested all the 3 plans. The results are here. Keep reading.
Let’s see what these plans provide, their pricing.
If you want help regarding domain names, SSL installation, check their knowledge base.
Now, take a look at the test results.
|SSD Storage||10 GB|
|Free SSL Certificate||No|
|Price||$3.88/month OR $22.88/yr|
As you can see, the uptime is 99.978% for the last 30 days. The response time is quite stable. But, there is a downtime of 6 min which is not good.
A simple WordPress website loaded in just 0.9 sec. With the inbuilt cache system, this speed is achieved.
The response time is good in the U.S region. If your audience is from India, you need to think as the response time is highest in this region.
I sent 50 virtual users & the server handled it easily. The response timeline is much stable which is a good thing.
Overall, it can handle much traffic & about 50 users at a time.
|Free SSL Certificate||Yes|
|Price||$7.88/month OR $26.88/yr|
The uptime for this plan is 99.986% for the last 30 days. But, there is a downtime of 5 min which is not good. The response time is also stable with just one spike.
The default WordPress installation loaded in just 0.8 sec (with a difference of 0.1 sec compared to Starter Plan).
The response time is somewhat the same as that of the Starter Plan. Overall, it got an A+ performance.
It handled 50 virtual users easily with the stable response time. There are 0 HTTP failures.
|SSD Storage||100 GB|
|Free SSL Certificate||Yes|
|Price||$11.88/month OR $28.88/yr|
The uptime is 99.98% for the last 30 days. There are some spikes in the response time which is not good. There is a 6 min downtime.
The default installation loaded in just 0.8 sec (which is more than the Supersonic plan). The speed depends on various factors. That’s why there’s some difference.
The response time is somewhat the same as that of the above plans. Performance is A+.
It handled 50 users with a stable response timeline.
Lets take a look at some of EasyWP’s features & limitations.
It’s very easy to take a backup of your website. Just head over to the Backups tab, name your backup & click on ‘Create Backup’. That’s it.
Note – You have to manually take backup. EasyWP doesn’t provide automated backups.
They provide live chat support which is quite good. I tried their live chat & got a reply within 30 sec. Pretty quick right?
They provide their own cache plugin that is already installed in the WordPress installation.
It has three levels of advanced caching (Varnish, Opcache, Redis object cache), delivering much faster performance than many of the traditional WordPress caching plugins.
Do I recommend EasyWP?
Yes, but just for people who have a low budget as the pricing is low compared to other Managed hosting providers.
The platform is not fully developed & is lacking some features. Uptime could be better. I hope they will improve their platform in the future.
That’s it. As the name suggests ‘Easy’WP, installing WordPress, taking backup, accessing files is easy. Still, it lacks some features.
This was an honest EasyWP review with the test results. The performance is excellent but it falls back for uptime. It needs to work on its uptime.
If you are looking for affordable managed WordPress hosting, go with EasyWP. But take care of their limitations.
