Cloud Ways Hosting Review 2021

Cloudways Expert Review

Cloudways hosting services are built around flexibility and scalability. Cloudways is a cloud-based, managed hosting company that focuses on small to medium-sized businesses. However, it offers a unique pay-as you-go service, which makes it affordable for smaller and mid-sized companies.

Cloudways experts reviewed the hosting service by putting it through a trial period that lasted several months. This test was to see if its features and performance. Cloudways offers great value, customization and flexibility thanks to the many cloud options. Check out our Cloudways Review below to find the best hosting solution for you.

Both the pros and cons

The pros:

  • You can choose the right hosting platform for you using AWS, Google Cloud and DigitalOcean. There are many server options.
  • You only pay for the services you use with an easy subscription that is usage-based.
  • Company uptimes rank among the best in the sector, loading times are also fast.
  • With your hosting package, you can give your apps an extra layer of trust by including SSL certificates.
  • Cloudways customer service is outstanding and can help you find the answers to your questions or problems.
  • Protect your server with automatic patching and firmware upgrades to avoid any potential vulnerabilities.
  • Automated GIT implementations and unlimited staging areas will keep your team organized and productive.

Cons

  • Cloudways is more suited for web apps, so it's less helpful if you are building a site.
  • Hosting plans for the company are managed fully, so you don't have root access.
  • There are not many scripts that you can easily install on servers.

Prices and payment methods

Cloudways' pricing structure is one of its most unique features. Cloudways bills itself as "pay-as you-go" and we are pleased to report that they deliver. There are five infrastructures available: DigitalOcean Linode Vultr Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud.

Cloudways' lowest priced plan is the DigitalOcean Basic Package at $10 per Month. This package includes 25GB storage, 1TB bandwidth and 1GB RAM. Vultr is $11 per month and Linode starts at $12 per monthly. Higher tiers provide 8GB RAM, 160GB storage and 5TB bandwidth. Digital Ocean offers a $80 per month plan, and Linode has the highest priced at $90 per month.

Cloudways AWS and Google Cloud Services were more suitable for our heavy-duty requirements. Amazon's cheaper solution costs $36.51 per monthly and provides 1.75GB RAM, 20GB storage and 2GB bandwidth. AWS servers can be configured in a number of ways. Your bandwidth usage is calculated based on your use, so there's no need to worry about exceeding your allocated space.

Google Cloud offers a similar deal starting at $33.30 per monthly, but with slightly less RAM. We liked how flexible and affordable these plans were. They let you only pay what you need and don't lock you into expensive plans.

It's easy to use

Cloudways's user control was amazing. Cloudways has its own control panel, which is different from other hosting providers that offer the standard cPanel. This gives users many options. The CPU Monitoring tab was a favorite. It allows you to see the performance of your servers and makes smarter decisions regarding scaling up capacity during peak periods. Vertical Scaling allows you to select the amount of space that you require in just a few mouse clicks.

For beginners unfamiliar with the complex features Cloudways has, the lack of cPanel can be confusing. With just a few clicks, you can build sites and add new instances to your apps. You also have access to useful 1-click integrations that allow for web development and e-commerce. The service is designed for more advanced developers but you still have great benefits if you are a beginner.

Load times and reliability

Cloudways is a reliable server provider that can load files quickly and avoids crashes. This could lead to a loss in revenue for your company. Cloudways reviewed the company's performance over several months. We measured its uptimes, loading times and overall efficiency. Cloudways guarantees at least 99.99% uptime for all its server options. Vultr was the most impressive, offering 100.00%. The loading times were also impressive, with an average load time of 0.4 seconds to 0.6 seconds. This is significantly higher than the industry average.

These are the features

When reviewing hosting services, one of the main selling points is its features. Cloudways offers all plans with over 10 1-click integrations, including Drupal, Magento and WordPress. With just a click, you can easily add SSL certificates for all of your websites and applications.

If you are looking for a quick way to set up new instances, 1-click server replication is a great option. Managed backups also help in the event of an emergency. Cloudways offers dedicated OS-level firewalls and automated software updates. It also provides two-factor authentication.

Cloudways offers advanced developer tools if you require more features. Cloudways offers unlimited app installs and compatibility with MySQL and MariaDB. It also provides temporary URLS and dedicated staging areas. There are multiple PHP versions. We would like to have seen more 1-click integrations of apps, but you still can use PHP to add new applications or to manually install them.

Support for Customers

A website crisis can make it difficult to feel overwhelmed and helpless. Cloudways' expert review revealed that there are many excellent support channels. Cloudways has a large user base that you can use to search for answers or to help you solve your problem on your own.

For more detailed support, you can reach out to teams via chat or an online ticketing system. Cloudways support team was highly skilled and capable of resolving most of our problems.

Review of Cloudways by Users

Our reviews focus on providing an overview of the company's features and services. Cloudways users reviews are available below.

Conclusion

We were satisfied with Cloudways' service. Cloudways offers multiple cloud servers providers which allows you to select the best service. If you are on a tight budget, or don't want to commit to an expensive multi-year or annual plan, the usage-based model of payment is a great option.

The company does not offer the same number of 1-click integrations that some competitors but it provides a rich environment to create web apps and websites. It also offers top-of-the-line security and back-end tools. Cloudways offers a wide range of tools and excellent customer support. It is a great choice if you are looking for an affordable solution to your websites or web applications.

Cloudways is can be helpful less technical website owners
Cloudways isnt the best but at least I found their regime hassle free for least technical people like me, I handed over everything even including my word-press ad-dons installation to them and they didn't ask for any extra charges, and I contact them every now and then for different issues, they are quick in this regard
for me they are above average!

Disappointed customer
Cloudways aren't cheap, but initially seemed worth the for us money. Unfortunately as time went on, they made mistakes that cost us significant amounts. Upon complaint they made excuses, and on cancellation got sarcastic. Very disappointed.

Not happy
My Magento site is slow and keeps going down randomly. Nobody knows why it happens. Price seemed good bt overall unhappy.

Jan 24, 2019 09:06
liars and fake people from pakistan pretending to be from europe. will hold uh hostage if uh choose to host with them and do everything they can to restrict permissions to your own servers. Do not work with them at any cost.

Mar 22, 2018 04:14
Initially seemed cheap and good. But then support is not what you expect. If you need no management, then buy directly from DigitalOcean or AWS. No use buying from Cloudways.

Have you ever wanted a fast and scalable #cloudhosting for your website or Web Design Agency clients, and the solutions out there were too technical or time-consuming to configure? Been there, done that. Since I started using Cloudways, I am spending more time creating websites, and less time dealing with slow hosting issues or configurations. They are also providing amazing customer and technical support!

So cloudways have awesome plans for beginners . Just only for $10 .I like the most thing that they charge as postpaid also . Their customer care service is awesome and 24 hr available for us. I have asked so much question to service executive and they have given me all the answers with explanation. So i also prefer cloudways to you 😁😁

Just migrated from Shared Siteground servers to Cloudways. And I say this... It is absolutely different experience! Much faster speeds, uploads, the dashboard reacts instantly. It would not be an overstatement that the site's speed has doubled. Also the customer support. I asked a lot of questions. A LOT. They have helped me to migrate the website to their platform, helped with SSL, cloudflare setup, changed DNS to point to new IP. Would give more than 5 stars, as they truly deserve it!

Cloudways has a great interface to let me keep track of only thing i necessary need to focus on. so far speed and responds time has been outstanding and great support, overall a very satisfying experience getting out from the traditional hosting services to Cloudways.

Can't Fault Cloudways. Good fast hosting. Simple Control Panel. A good alternative to normal slow shared hosting and I have tried a few different ISP's.

Hello Y'all, I would like to say that you guys are the best, to begin with. I ain't a techi but each time I come with huge list of quires, I always end up with excellent support team, and today was not an exception. My email was lost, my website was down and i have bunch of demos waiting for the next few days. I reach out to your chat support and I ended up with Mr. M.Shah, who was so kind, extremely helpful and patience with my queries. I felt like I was talking to a good team member who is miles away to support us. That kind of a connection doesn't happen with all chat support you end up. He helped me with the work around and best part was he was super cool and helpful. Thank you Shah, appreciate your help and long way to go! THANK YOU - Annie

We have always received great customer service from the team at Cloudways. Our issues have always been fixed quickly whenever we have had an issue and jumped on chat with them. The servers are amazing as well. Overall, one of the best hosting providers we have ever used. The value far exceeds the cost.

Fantastic company. They made it super easy for me to deploy a server with Wordpress installed with a very easy-to-use backend to manage my projects and servers for clients. They also keep everything updated for me as well as dealing with SSL and whatnot. Makes my job much easier. All this for a super low price. Lastly, they actually value their customers and when I had a client that was late on a payment, they worked with me multiple times to give me an extension to make the payment when my client paid me, all within a 2 minute conversation with one of their great reps. Truly appreciate how great their service is as a whole.

I switched to Cloudways about a year ago and found out that I have made a correct decision. Everything was very smooth from the start. As a non-technical person, I followed the instructions they provided, and completed the migration of my Wordpress site in 4 hours. (Most of them I spent time playing games, and let the plugin do the job) Since everything was done, the site runs fast, and never experiences any downtime. Billing is never an issue for me, as the payment is deducted from my registered bank account. Their technical support agents are mostly helpful, knowledgeable and very easy to reach by live chat. They have solved many of my problems. However, I did chat with a few unhelpful technical support agents as well. I think he just wanted to finish my session as fast as possi...
