THE ADMIN BAR ENDORSES
Cloudways gives you an easy-to-use interface that connects you with some of the world’s leading cloud providers like: Vultr, Digital Ocean, AWS, & more. These hosting services give you some of the best performance in the industry, but without Cloudways providing the user interface they can be intimidating and hard to use (especially for people who aren’t well versed in server management).
They offer a pay-as-you go model that allows you to scale your servers as you need them— which is a great solution when you are offering hosting for your clients. With servers starting at $11/mo that can easily hold 5-10 low-traffic sites, it’s one of the most cost-efficient solutions on the market.
Why We Love Cloudways
Cloudways makes it so easy to manage all my properties. I can clone my starter site, put live sites in a staging environment, or spin up a whole new vanilla install in just minutes. The initial shock of a system that didn’t use cPanel was a bit jarring, but after learning how it works, I’d never want to use cPanel again!
My customer’s websites are loading in around 2 to 3 seconds out of the box without any additional optimization, and I’m able easily make the hosting part of my care packages profitable.
The biggest knock on Cloudways is the support team— who isn’t always helpful. While it’s been hit or miss for me, it’s so rare that I need support in the first place it doesn’t bother me terribly.
