TL;DR

Namecheap pricing has always been cheaper, and so the case with their managed WordPress hosting. EasyWP’s starter plans are inferior. It is better to choose a turbo or supersonic plan. The Turbo plan’s performance is excellent, and if you buy a hosting plan, there will be a discount of about 50% on the annual payment.

Namecheap is a great website where you get domain names, web hosting, and private email services at low prices.

You probably know, Namecheap provides managed WordPress hosting under the name of EasyWP.

EasyWP Performance

I have been using Namecheap’s EasyWP Turbo Managed Hosting Plan for the last one month. I have created some demo websites and was testing them only. I had more problems connecting my domain, although I did not contact Customer Care.

I performed the performance checks using speed checking tools like the popular GTMetrix, Google Pagespeed Insight, and Pingdom.

You can see the results of the three tools below, where I got an A grade in all speed test tools.

Final Thoughts on EasyWP

Namecheap’s EasyWP managed WordPress hosting is excellent in terms of pricing and performance. There are some loopholes that you can ignore. EasyWP gave quite a good performance during my testing, but I never thought that would be so good.
