Support exceeds expectations

The worst thing about traditional hosting support is the time waiting for a ticket to be actioned. Cloudways chat based first level support does away with that anxiety. Issues are often resolved during the chat and if not, ticket ...Read More

Constant problems

Service used: Cloud - Vultr Starter Plan
Moved from SiteGround
I've hosted about a dozen sites on Cloudways for about a year now. There are constantly problems with some part of their system. Frequent page load errors due to their Varnish implementation; occasional failures to renew Let's Encrypt SSL; poor application monitoring to identify resource usage.

Applications hosting platform

Cloudways is a cloud platform hosting company offering ease-of-use application hosting options in order for you to focus on developing your web application and business while they focus on the hosting side. They claim to offer a one-stop shop for all application hosting needs while focusing on simplicity and ease-of-use.

Good quality hosting

Cloudways guarantees a 100% faster page load time than competitors based on their multilevel configuration for hosting your applications. There are no complaints about downtime that I can find on their social media pages, or on any other hosting reviews so there is no reason to think you would have any trouble in this area.

Only cloud hosting available

As a Cloud based hosting company, Cloudways offers only Cloud hosting services for building websites and applications. They tout ease-of-use and one-click set-up with all of their options, and their packages come with many features to help you focus on your business rather than running your website. Their VMAN stack configuration guarantees a 40-50% better page load time than regular hosting services, and speeds like that will keep your website running smoothly. All of their Cloud servers are dedicated servers giving you complete control, and offer 1-click SSL management. Additionally, they offer automatic patching to update servers and operating systems. All servers and applications are also behind a secure firewall to prevent unauthorized access and hacking attempts. Additional features include unlimited domains, email add-ons, managed servers, multiple application deployment, and 15+ key metrics monitoring.

Support

Customer focused support

This company seems to have a very reliable 24/7 support network. They have 24/7 live support, and while I was browsing the site a “We are online” bubble was constantly hovering in the bottom corner in case I needed any help. They have 24/7 live chat and ticket support, as well as options in customers’ control panels and dashboards. They keep a running tab of tickets answered, and seem to rate very highly in their support rating. Additionally, they have a knowledge base in case you would care to browse for answers on your own

Pricing

Plenty of pricing options at typical prices

Cloudways offers multiple package options in a variety of memory sizes based on your personal or company needs. Their smallest package comes with 20GB of memory and 1 TB of bandwidth for only $5 a month, which is quite reasonable for a cloud-based application hosting site. Their two smallest packages come with a 14 day free trial in addition to free premium support and unlimited applications. They offer package options with up to 480GB of memory and 8TB of bandwidth, and depending on your budget, this gets very pricey, but you do get what you pay for. If you need even more options, they have a link for you to click for an inquiry into more customizable options. With all of their options they offer a 30-day money back guarantee.

Summary

Hosting focused on cloud solutions for app developers

Cloudways offers a very thorough application hosting service for customers to focus on their businesses and application development. Their managed options take care of all technical issues and the 24/7 live support team is there for any and all issues and concerns customers may have. They work in connection with a number of global companies and have a fairly high customer satisfaction rate for application hosting companies. Pros:
  • All-inclusive package options
  • Global customer base
  • Many package options to choose from
Cons:
  • Only cloud based hosting options
  • Focused only on web applications so if you want to host a general website, this is not the company for you
