WordPress hosting providers

You're running a business on your WordPress website, so it's important you have reliable managed hosting. Some WordPress hosting providers we would recommend for use with Memberful (in alphabetical order):

Please note: We do NOT have referral relationships with any these hosting providers. We recommend them from experience only.

After you choose a WordPress host, we strongly recommend enabling SSL on your WordPress website. All of our recommended hosting providers have easy installation and support for SSL.

Redirects not working?

We set a cookie that redirects members back to the page they were on (or somewhere else) after they sign in. Some hosting providers will ignore these cookies by default and still serve the page from the cache. Please contact a support engineer at WP Engine (or your hosting provider) and ask them to add a custom cache exception for Memberful (exclude memberful_endpoint=.* from the cache).

Hosting with Flywheel? Contact a support engineer and ask them to whitelist
?memberful_endpoint and add memberful_endpoint as a cookie-keeping path.

Hosting with SiteGround? Navigate to cPanel→ PHP Variables Manager and add session.cookie_path variable to session.cookie_path: /memberful_endpoint/
Make sure you set a trailing slash at the end of the path.

Staging site

Some hosting providers (like Flywheel and WP Engine) have built in staging sites. You could get your membership program setup on a staging site, then switch it to the real domain when you’re ready to launch. Just don’t forget to disconnect/reconnect the Memberful plugin!
