Cloudways Hosting Review 2020
the perfect solution for managed WordPress hosting
Updated for 2020
If you’re a web developer, you know the importance of cloud hosting. Cloudways continues to be our first choice for hosting our own sites. If it’s good enough for us, it’s good enough to host our client websites too! Dviso values the fact that the platform is designed specifically for website developers. Cloudways provides opportunity to adjust service resources with ease. The platform also offers consistent uptime and performance. Four core values help us manage WordPress sites of all sizes. Those values include data-driven technology, innovation, simplicity and customer service.
More reasons why we use Cloudways
Cloudways provides a seamless balance between functionality and affordability. Its performance optimization is the result of innovative approaches to storing, editing and securing websites. We appreciate the ease of adding new applications on the server. It’s easy to change server settings and to restore files from backup. Loading times are faster because our website content is stored on many servers. If the main server crashes, downtime is minimized as other servers take over. Another Cloudways benefit is the automatic backup system. We can set backup frequencies from one hour to every seven days. We can also easily restore a backup with just a few clicks.
Cloudways offers scalable cloud hosting. This is a useful feature with the increase of Ecommerce stores. Our customers need to trust we can address their business needs. Dviso creates and manages moderate web traffic. Scalable infrastructures provided by Cloudways help us manage client websites with confidence. Scalability is important if we want any website to grow.
Benefits of a strong infrastructure
Five leading cloud providers form the Cloudways infrastructure. Take time to review Amazon Web Services (AWS), Digital Ocean, Google Cloud, Linode and Vultr. These Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IAAS) providers offer many managed hosting plans regardless of a website’s complexity, size or budget. Plan prices vary depending on which infrastructure provider you select. All plans offer pay-as-you-go options. This flexibility is great if you need to upscale or downscale services. All hosting plans include free site migrations, free SSL certificates, two-factor authentication and unlimited application installations.
ThunderStack Supports Scalability
Additionally, Cloudways developed a stack or bundle of software to support its infrastructure. The exclusive Thunderstack formula consists of the best cache and server technology. It includes Varnish Cache, NGINX, Redis, MarialDB, MySQL, Memcached, Apache and more. The PHP Stack allows developers to make the most of the platform. ThunderStack provides fast load times, flexibility and customization.
