WordPress hosting

Searching for Cloud Hosting Services can be a tedious job. There are heaps of hosting options all over the internet, having attractive hosting options, hands down! There is shared hosting, managed WordPress hosting, VPS and then, there is Managed Cloud Hosting.

WordPress is one of the most powerful CMS in the world that is powering more than a quarter of the internet. From designers to web developers to small agencies, everyone is using WordPress software in one form or another. The reason is simple: it’s easy to deploy, use and configure, provided, you don’t have to tackle the server side issues and have ample time to focus on your website.

Reliable hosting is one of the most important issues for WordPress based websites. Most of the time, if not all, a faulty web hosting server is the cause behind the failure of a WordPress website. Moreover, if you are not accustomed to installing WordPress manually, then you need to have a managed cloud based hosting by your side.

There are many managed cloud hosting providers in the industry. Choosing the one that suits your needs is a tough job. Have a look at this guide on how to decide upon a managed cloud hosting provider.

I had the opportunity to experience a managed WordPress hosting service provider, Cloudways - for free - owing to their 14 days free trial for DigitalOcean provider. Here is a transcript of my experience.

Cloudways

Yes, between you and your optimized website, there is only an email address that stands. You just have to sign up to start using the optimized Platform.

Cloudways has been serving the Cloud hosting industry efficiently, giving the users the freedom to scale and add team members. You can choose the provider you want to work with, from five giants of the industry; Amazon Web Services, DigitalOcean, Vultr, Google Cloud Platform, and Kyup.

That is not it!

There are other benefits of using Cloudways. These advantages include:

  • 24x7 Live Chat Support,
  • CloudwaysBot - a real-time insight provider,
  • Cloudways API,
  • Multiple Cloud Infrastructure,
  • SSD Based Hosting,
  • 1-Click Backup & Restore,
  • Free SSL From Let’s Encrypt
  • WPCLI
  • Git Deployment
  • Unlimited WordPress Migrations (easy as 1-2-3)
  • User-friendly Platform
  • And much, much more.

Let's just dive into the features that are offered by Cloudways.

No matter what, no review is complete without the feature of 1click scaling. We will discuss this later in the piece, but first, I am going to describe the platform, because that is important.

Multiple Cloud Infrastructures

When I say, Cloudways gives you versatile options; I mean it. You can choose your provider from Amazon, Google, DigitalOcean, Vultr, and Kyup. These providers have more than 40 destinations where you can deploy a web application. Technically, the platform has most of the updated data centers globally.

Infrastructure Providers

Security is one vital factor, and Cloud servers can be vulnerable in this regard. Cloudways devised algorithms to combat this technological plague. Not just this, the team of engineers at Cloudways are constantly on the lookout for any security threats. On top of that, regular OS patches and firmware upgrades make Cloudways safer (and better) than its competitors.

1click Application

Cloudways offers a range of PHP-based frameworks, content management systems, and e-commerce builders. Deployment is easy and swift. It is a matter of minutes.

You can choose the size of your CPU, the appropriate RAM to go with, and Storage. Give the server some minutes and Presto! You're done.

This era is the age of technology and advancements. This is the era of speed, and Cloudways guarantees a decrease in web page load times. I was intrigued as to how they do that, and while searching for answers, I stumbled upon their one of a kind catching formula, aptly called the ThunderStack. The stack, designed specifically to decrease load times by 100%, is a powerful combination of cache technologies and web servers.

The ThunderStack Formula

ThunderStack

ThunderStack is an exclusive Cloudways creation which uses Nginx and Apache web servers with Varnish and Memcached caching system. The intent to cut web page load time gets a satisfactory fulfillment, thanks to ThunderStack. Furthermore, you get the optional components coupled with the stack, Redis Cache, and you can choose the database software as well. You can pick either MySQL or MariaDB; the choice is yours.

The Power of a Click

As I told you earlier, Cloudways is based on one-click operations; this means you have the liberty to be the virtual owner of your server. Cloudways, actually is, Managed Cloud Hosting simplified. Take control of your business and attain greatness, Cloudways has your back. Cloudways is like that partner that takes your hand and propels you forward towards achieving success. Most operations in the Platforms are executed in 1-click, making it easier to perform server tasks in a matter of minutes.

Free SSL Certificates

Cloudways takes the security of websites very seriously. WordPress websites are very vulnerable to security threats, and why shouldn’t they be? Keeping this in mind, Cloudways has partnered with Let’s Encrypt to provide the industry leading, open source, SSL certificate for free. You can install let’s encrypt on WordPress in just 1click.

Free SSL certificates via Let’s Encrypt means the platform is also equipped with heavy artillery. Plus, the cloud servers launched through Cloudways can handle more than one website with or without SSL protection.

Scale up in a Jiffy

With Cloudways, scaling is just as simple as a volume slider. Scale your server resources (CPU, RAM, and storage) and bandwidth whenever you feel the need to do so. You can launch as many web apps you like; Cloudways gives you that option as well. Looking to manage multiple WordPress instances? You can launch WordPress Multisite as well. Moreover, you can set parameters directly from the Platform’s User Interface.

Work as a Team

If you need that your team joins on your project, you can invite them and make them a part of your team. Also, you can designate their roles while keeping the control to yourself.
Create automated workflows with Git and code deployment tools, keeping your code managed and monitor it properly. From a WordPress agency standpoint, the Team feature is quite helpful as it provides a single platform to the whole team for interaction.

Customer Support Has Your Back

24×7 customer support gives you the ease of use. Start a live chat session and talk to the customer support team. Another way; a simple ticket would connect you to the Customer support expert who will look into your query.

Easy on the Pocket

Cloudways has all the features of a high-end hosting solution, delivering simplified yet valuable cloud servers. However, the price differs from the features; it is highly reasonable. Working on a pay-as-you-go system, you can pay for what you use which means you will get hourly invoices.

So here is the price of a production server from Vultr, $9. Furthermore, a test server from DigitalOcean costs $7.

Oh! One more thing, Cloudways bounds you in no contracts, so technically there is no bluff in it.
