As of August 2020, when you visit WPX, you will notice a few changes on our site, this blog and our Knowledgebase (the KB is a work in progress but we’re getting there!).
And firstly, let’s be clear, absolutely nothing else at WPX is changing apart from our design look, logo and main Web address – more on that in a moment.
Everything, and I mean everything, else is unchanged.
NO changes to our status as one of the last few INDEPENDENT hosts.
NO new owners.
NO price changes whatsoever.
NO changes to the great WPX Support Team, one of the most trusted in hosting.
And NO changes whatsoever to our high-speed hosting platform and free custom CDN.
So why did we change the look of WPX from this:
Well, the old look and logo has been with us since 2016 and we felt that it needed updating and simplifying.
You can get the flavor of the new look here:
But more than that, WPX has always been about changing and independently innovating in WordPress hosting – you can read more on our change/independence philosophy here:
- from being the only host with their own custom high-speed CDN
- to offering unlimited free site migrations to WPX within 24 hours (domain change migrations notwithstanding)
- to being the first host to provide a ‘Fixed For You Fast & Free’ guarantee if your site goes offline
- to free malware scanning & removal (some hosts charge crazy fees for malware removal), note there can be a queue for removal work
- and free site speed optimization upon request (Mon-Fri)
- in total, that adds up to a LOT of value in Managed WordPress hosting
You get the idea.
When WPX was created back in 2013, it was with an independent vision to change the arrogant, broken old-school model of Web hosting.
That is still true today and we are one of very very few independent hosts left now, most have been swallowed up by giant corporations that have a terrible track record on customer service.
It also turns out that your own entrepreneurship with your website was probably also driven by a desire to change your life, maybe from a boring, meaningless job or desire to spend more time travelling or with your family.
At WPX, we get that you’re busy working on changing your life with your online projects and you’re in exactly the right place with us.
So, WPX now has a brand new design look and will operate from the simpler Web address of wpx.net instead of WPXHosting.com, but wpxhosting.com will ALWAYS redirect to wpx.net so don’t worry if you won’t remember it for a while.
If any of this is unclear or you need help with something at WPX, remember, our support heroes are never more than 30 seconds away on live chat.
Any time of the day or night, wherever you are in the world, we’re just 30 seconds or less away on live chat.
And that’s 30 seconds away from someone who can usually fix the problem for you.
I hope you enjoy the new look of WPX soon and let me know what you think of it – I will answer personally!
