I like how powerful yet simple their platform is. Cloudways is the future of hosting!
You have access to the best providers: Amazon, Digital Ocean, Google, Vultr and Kyup, their top-notch technology (example: ultra-fast SSD storage) across all global regions but the difference is Cloudways is managing the servers for you.
For people coming from shared hosting this means having access to better technology / performance (my App is now loading at the speed of light) and the services of a managed host like Rackspace at the price as shared hosting while keeping things simple like in shared hosting; for people coming from the dedicated servers space this means no more hassle managing servers while still benefiting from the low prices of dedicated hosting; for people coming from managed hosting this means getting the same level of services (security, package upgrades, etc) at a fraction of the cost. In a word Cloudways is the ultimate killer App / host regardless from the type of hosting product you are looking for.
You can deploy a server with any major technology (PHP-FPM, PHP 7, Memcached, Redis, etc) or framework (Wordpress, Laravel …) in minutes and within the simplest yet most comprehensive interface ever created that will suit the beginners. Cloudways is suitable for any project size whether you need 1 CPU or 200 CPUs, allowing to scale in minutes.
Moving to Cloudways is very easy as they have built technology to seamlessly do so (it took me 30 minutes), and if you run into issues their support team will help you until you have fully migrated.
The Cloudways team has been innovating constantly: adding new hosting partners, developing new features - like a bot which can post automatically to your slack channels in case your server has issues or the Cloudways API.
Saying that we have been impressed is an understatement.
Thanks again Cloudways for building such an outstanding product and to those reading this review, well, do not wait any further to join the Cloudways revolution!
