    Terrible. We hosted ~25 websites with them at a whopping $500 a month for multiple months and encountered nothing but problems. It literally started with the migration of our sites when they for some reason, can’t quite figure out how to use the Search & Replace function inside the database properly.

    We had a lot of downtime and when we asked them to investigate, they would do a half-a**ed job, ask our team to do it, or simply are clueless/incompetent (some of the causes included their tech-stack, outdated software, and poor management of our resources…) Their support team would ping-pong us among themselves which resulted in diffused responsibility and accountability (there were times their own team members contradicted themselves.

    Hosting with them has been frustrating and costly – we spent quite a few man hours dealing with all of the errors we encountered, furthermore, we lost a lot of changes our team was making to our various websites because we experienced database connection issues. This was the last straw… They blamed Amazon for the database issue as if that somehow is supposed to excuse them.

    We’ve since moved away from Pagely and do NOT recommend them whatsoever. Terrible company that pretends to be cutting-edge and charge you for it but can’t get their act together.

    Surprised you didn’t cover backups here, as that’s the other critical consideration & what blew me out of the water at WP Engine … oops, found info at bottom of Pagely’s pricing page – auto backup to S3 with 14 day retention.
