Flywheel Hosting Review 2021

Complete Review of Host me Host

Diverse Hosting since 2012

Flywheel is a hosting company that has been around since 2012. Flywheel specializes in WordPress hosting. This is one of the most widely used content management systems. They can help you launch large-scale business pages or a personal site. They offer web hosting as well as a range of creative tools such as ROI calculators and design publications.

Customers from all over the globe are represented by the company, as well as their employees who have profiles on the site. This allows you to really get to know the company that you work with. This company is one of the best hosting companies and will meet your every need.

High Uptime and Reliability

Hosting is very stable

Although it doesn't appear that you can be assured of an uptime, that does not mean that your problems will go away. You will enjoy a high-quality experience thanks to the use of top quality hardware and very well equipped data centers. Many people have expressed satisfaction with their site's stability. They also offer full site backups and malware monitoring, which will ensure that your website is always available to your visitors.

These are the features

Simple to understand features

You will find everything clearly laid out on the Features page, which is located under the Pricing heading. Although it may seem a bit confusing initially, they make it easy to understand once you start using it. You can first choose to pay per website. This means that you can select a package which allows only one WordPress installation. There are 4 levels within this category, ranging in size from Tiny to Full Custom. This package offers up to 5000 visitors per month, five gigs disk space and 250 gigs bandwidth.

You can host up to 100,000 users, have 20GB of disk space and 1TB bandwidth with the 'Professional" package. You can also choose to have a customized option which can handle virtually unlimited traffic, and as much disk space as you require.

You can upgrade to the bulk plan if you intend to create many sites. This gives you higher limit and allows you to install WordPress 10, 30, or 30 times. For people running several sites, or who want to be hosting resellers, this is an excellent option.

Assistance

24/7 Tech Support Available

Tech support can be reached 24/7/365 for any assistance you may need. Fully managed hosting is offered by them. This means that they are able to help you with any software issues as well as hardware problems. You can find a variety of videos, documents and information at their website. This will help you stay informed on how things are going and the type of service you're getting.

Pricing

Hosts slightly overpriced

Hosting at the higher levels is more costly than you might expect. The entry-level package will only allow you to host one site for $15 per month. Although you get quality hosting at this level and have access to more features than the average, it still is higher than industry norms. The prices for higher-level features will increase naturally. It seems that the average price is just a bit higher at every level. They are not ripping off you. However, if you are concerned about cost, you can find cheaper alternatives.

Users Friendly

A very friendly corporate culture

They are focused on offering excellent customer service. You will find them extremely welcoming when you interact with them. You will also see that there are 'Happiness Engineers' on their staff. This is a sign that they care about being a great company for both customers and employees. It is easy to navigate their site, which is important for any user-friendly company.

Summary

Great Hosting Solutions

It is a great hosting company. This company does things differently from other hosting companies, but that isn't necessarily a negative thing. My experience has only shown me happy customers who are content with the overall experience.

The pros:

  • Stable
  • User Friendly Company
  • Host Your Own Website

Cons

  • Prices Exceedingly High
  • WordPress Hosting Only

I went on the website to evaluate features and pricing. It immediately started annoying me with popups trying to get me to engage with customer service/sales. So I asked a simple question and was ignored for about 15 minutes (at noon central time so well inside business hours in north american time zones). When someone finally came on, it "sounded" like a chat bot - it ignored my question and asked me for my name instead. I closed the tab because I don't have time for companies that disrespect my time.

The best WP hosting site I've used. Good value, great support and excellent performance under very high load. Far superior to previous suppliers tried.

Their support's just amazing, very dedicated in what they do and go by what's benchmarked. Will work with them in the future and recommend them for best support in Managed WordPress hosting.

I have had a few sites hosted with Flywheel over the last 2 years and they have been faultless. The service has been excellent and so has the support on the few occasions I have even needed it. My only real qualm is that I wish it was more affordable to the average small client/website, then I would host everything with Flywheel, but I guess that is the price you pay for reliability and quality support.

There's nothing like Flywheel in the industry right now. From the absolute best managed Wordpress hosting you can buy, to their brilliantly designed UI, to their flawless, free, open-source development app Local by Flywheel, to their amazing customer service, they're just a mile above everyone else. I'm a freelance Wordpress developer, and I've hosted with GoDaddy, Hostgator, Dreamhost, and WPEngine, and none of them compare. Flywheel has seriously improved my work flow and my bank account in just a few months of being with them. I also can't say enough about their customer service - kind, knowledgeable, helpful, generous. Everything a developer could want. I tell everybody I know about them.

I've been with Flywheel since Oct 2016 and I joined the partner programme with 72 sites as an agency. I need to share my disappointment and the poor customer service experience I've been having with Flywheel for the past 2 years. The number one problem is the server failing to provide its primary function which is hosting my clients' websites. Only 3 days ago, 15 sites were unreachable online. Clients were calling me stressed asking "What's going on? Why my website is offline?" I had no idea what was happening until I got the call from my clients. So I reached out to Flywheel support, waited 15min and then they said sorry there is nothing we can do you need to contact our emergency team. So I emailed the emergency team to get help, and they replied by "we looked into the server downt...

DO NOT WASTE YOUR $$$ Regular crashes. Almost predictable downtime. 80% uptime AT BEST. Absolutely horrible, detestable enterprise. Hosting companies that charge $5 a month are more reliable than this monstrosity of a company. I cannot stress how terrible of a solution they are. If you care about your website do not host it here.

I spent several weeks finding a host for my company's website. Most of the shared hosting companies ran either Plesk or cPanel which put a layer of control over the site I couldn't deal with (I prefer to manage my files myself and both Plesk and cPanel don't allow me to manage at the level I like). I even fired up several stacks (WAMP, XAMP, etc.) and even an AWS instance which worked fine until I needed some support. Then I was referred to the script developers (Bitnami) which went absolutely nowhere quickly. I eventually found Flywheel and was blown away. Not only did they give me a completely populated local VM stack for development, but publishing the site was a one-click operation. Now the best part. Their support staff really own whatever problems I may be having (rather than fo...

I love my hosting provider, Flywheel. They always have fantastic support times, getting me answers in minutes. They help out with technical issues as well as dumb blonde moments with grace. The support staff is fantastic, and the hosting is excellent. I have never experienced downtime outside of those scheduled. Keep up the great work, Flywheel!

We've moved to Flywheel Cloud server a few weeks back and it's been an appalling experience. The site is faster but it has been down a few times. It can't cope with spikes of traffic. Do yourself a favour and avoid.

I've been using Flywheel for about 3 years now and I would never switch. The support is out of this world and they will go above and beyond for you every single time! If you're using another hosting you are missing out on a much better experience.

The best customer service I think I have dealt with, they are so quick and knowledgeable. Any issue I have had we have dealt with quickly and efficiently. The dashboard is super user friendly, the features are all great. We have had no problems whatsoever hosting 3 sites with them.
