Atlas – Headless WordPress

Headless solutions are absolutely the future of enterprise WordPress, yet there isn’t one end-to-end solution out there that includes the dynamic Node.js layer, the static CDN layer and the Headless content management systems (CMS) layer, in one package. That’s why we created Atlas.

Jason Cohen, Founder & CTO at WP Engine

Atlas is WP Engine‘s new enterprise-grade Node hosting platform which works differently from their WordPress platform. With WordPress, you get a server that you can access via SFTP or SSH. With Node, however, the infrastructure is opaque to you. You just have to point their platform to a GitHub repo and they will then monitor the repo and deploy it automatically!

Features & Benefits

Check out the benefits:

  • Single hosting experience with Node.js powered apps for the frontend and optimized WordPress for the backend.
  • Developer tools including modern frontend frameworks, APIs & resources.
  • Node.js and Headless WordPress in one integrated single platform.
  • Top-notch performance (up to 10 times faster than traditional WordPress).
  • Enterprise-grade security.
  • Multiple server-side environments, auto-deployments from GitHub branches, both static and dynamic headless architectures, a JavaScript framework of your choice, and a scriptable command-line.
  • Faust.js for easy WordPress development.
  • Full-featured sandbox, blueprints, WPGraphQL Plugin, and more.


Atlas Sandbox is completely free of charge. Pricing for Atlas Hosting starts from as low as $49 per month for the Startup plan which includes one site, 25,000 visits per month, 10GB storage, and 50GB bandwidth per month.

By upgrading to an annual plan, you will get two months for free. WP Engine also provides a 60 day money-back guarantee.
