I was looking forward to the review and speed test from the WPspace WordPress hosting expert. My experience with the affordable WordPress hosting from Germany with sufficient server resources.
WPspace is a cloud hosting provider specialized in WordPress. This promises short loading times and excellent visitor response. With each package you get staging, emails, backups and an SSL certificate. Additionally, there is a WP Rocket and Divi license included
I have written and also talked on the phone with WPspace for a long time. For the WordPress hoster, satisfied customers are important, I quickly noticed. The support is always available during the day and solves problems skillfully.
But now let’s look at the provider in detail!
What is WPspace?
WPspace has recognized the demand for fully-managed and above all fast providers especially for WordPress. This is exactly where the strength of the company from Koblenz lies.
WordPress hosting means choosing and aligning the hardware and software to respond optimally to the needs of this CMS (Content Management System).
Also, you get your isolated area at the server that only your website can access. These dedicated server resources are important when another website on the same server suddenly requires an excessive amount of processor time. This way, downtime only occurs for that one website, and your blog continues to run at full speed.

With monthly payment, the prices increase to € 19.99 for Pro, € 34.99 for Pro XL and € 74.99 for WooCommerce, so it’s worth considering carefully beforehand and paying annually.
With a mass hoster like All-Inkl you do not need to compare the prices, of course. But for comparable WordPress hosters, WPspace prices are convenient. This is a big plus for WPspace!

WP Rocket License
I am quite a big fan of WP Rocket and have it running on all my websites as well. Unfortunately, the caching plugin is only available as a paid version. With WPspace, the license is included and the plugin is already pre-installed.
Divi from Elegant Themes has been around for a long time. Hardly any other WordPress theme has completely reinvented itself so often. This is not the only reason why Divi is one of the most popular themes worldwide.
I have already created many blogs with this premium theme. Many of my clients choose this theme.
A license is included with WPspace and the theme is pre-installed.
Strengths and weaknesses
Who is WPspace suitable for?
WPspace is for any website owner who wants to deliver the best possible user experience to their visitors. Even if you don’t want to worry about the technology, but still need a really fast page load.
Do you have an online store with WooCommerce, you will also find the right package with enough resources.
For the test environment, I installed the free Kadence theme with the Coffee Shop starter template. Additionally, the Kadence Blocks are necessary. I have uninstalled all other themes and plugins. PHP version 8.1 is active.
Time to First Byte (TTFB) is a basic metric for measuring connection setup time and web server responsiveness, both in the lab and in practice.
WPspace Time to First Byte: 0.07 – 0.66 seconds
Even though WP Rocket is already installed, I did my speed tests without it at first to get consistent test results:
Then the speed tests with WP Rocket active:
You see, even with an elaborate website, WPspace is super fast. Even WooCommerce is active with the template.
You can get support via phone, email, help center and chat.
The help section is sufficiently filled. This is important for me because I always look there first. If I don’t find what I’m looking for, I try to chat. On weekdays, you get an answer within minutes.
Frequently asked questions
Conclusion about WPspace as WordPress hoster
I am actually very fond of WPspace. The offer is good, the speed is outstanding and the scope of services is impressive. I have only good experiences with the web host from Koblenz.
I also find it very cool that WP Rocket and Divi are already included. Also, the WordPress Toolkit I would not want to miss more.
For 14,99 Euro per month you have a fast webspace with many premium tools, which you won’t find at other hosters. With the Pro tariff you get along forever, most blogs are far from 50,000 visitors per month.
So what do YOU think about WPspace? Will you try the WordPress hoster?
