Video With WPEngine Sales Support Disclosing Server Specs - None Given!
As you can see from the video, WPEngine’s staff are trained to NOT disclose their server spec’s, thus leaving their clients completely in the dark about the hosting service they offer.
It would be like you going into a bakery and asking what the ingredients are for a cake and being told they don’t give out that information, like asking if they had nuts in their bread and being told they can’t give out those details, you would find that to not only be ridiculous, it could also be dangerous to your health and you just wouldn’t do business with them.
