WordPress.com is a fully managed WordPress hosting solution operated by Automattic Inc. that stands apart from the WordPress.org self-hosted model. If you would like to use our services then we would need to migrate your website over to our platform.
As we are hosting websites on the WP Engine infrastructure we have to review visitor numbers regularly to ensure that we do not incur additional overage charges as outlined by WP Engine here: https://wpengine.co.uk/overage-pricing/
As part of the essentials plan we include a 50,000 visitors per month limit by default and 80% of our customer sites are below this limit. Only 20% of the sites we host require a higher usage banding.
WP Engine states that they will apply $2 per additional 1000 visitors over the allowed and agreed usage limit. WP Engine has its own mechanism for counting visitors and it might differ from e.g. Google Analytics, although Google Analytics should give you some idea about how many visits your site gets every month.
After the first month of hosting your site we will have a better understanding of your website visitor numbers as counted by WP Engine and we might have to adjust your included visitor numbers accordingly. We will contact you as soon as we notice that your site might not fall within the purchased visitor banding.
Our visitor bandings and pricing are as follows:
Number of Visitors
Additional Price Per Month
0 to 50k visitors
Included in AWESEM Essentials
50k to 75k
75k to 100k
100k to 150k
150k to 200k
200k to 250k
250k to 500k
500k to 1million

Finally, using a CDN or website firewall are ways to reduce server traffic and this can help avoid or reduce any overage charges.
Depending on your chosen payment frequency, we take monthly, quarterly, annual or bi-annual payments via GoCardless or via bank transfer. Once we’ve reviewed your application we will get in touch regarding invoicing and payments.
