WP-Engine is the world leader in hosting WordPress websites. By world leader I mean: they have the best infrastructure, an extremely simple management website, and run an incredible number of WordPress websites. If you'be been using a budget hosting company you will be very impressed with support and with the speed of the websites you run on WP-Engine.

Creating an account with WP-Engine is very straight forward:

  1. Go to the WP-Engine 20% off signup page:

    Note: This is an affiliate link and we at AssetLab Academy get a commission when you sign up for an account. Don't be concerned though, we use WP-Engine for all our important websites because it is far superior. This is why we recommend WP-Engine to all our clients.
  2. Choose the billing cycle you prefer
  3. Enter your contact information
  4. Choose the United States data center unless specifically directed otherwise
  5. Select the highest PHP Version available
  6. Enter the billing information for the account
  7. Accept the Terms & Privacy Policy
  8. Click the "Create my site" button

If you want to create a website straight away then you can follow the instructions to do so. If you're working with a Pro then the best course is to skip setting up a new website and proceed to give the Pro access to your account.

How to grant access to a WP-Engine account for a Pro:

  1. Sign in to your account by visiting:
  2. Select "Users" from the top menu
  3. Click on the "Add user" button
  4. Enter the name, email, and access level for the person you are adding
    Owner - This is for creating a new account owner, and probably not what you want to do...
    Full (No Billing)
     - This user has full control over all technical aspects of the account except payment and billing
    Full (With Billing) - This user is just like the account owner in their abilities
    You can also grant access to specific WordPress installs here if that is the goal...Note: If you're working with AssetLab  select "Full (With Billing)". This allows for transfer-in of websites. Once we handle the transfer we will downgrade to "Full (No Billing)"
  5. Click "Create user"
  6. The new user will now get an email with sign-in instructions


You're all set at this point. You've created an account and you have granted access to someone else to help manage the account.

Retargeting is the most amazing feature that the Internet has…
