What does Cloudways do well? Flexible hosting. Cheap. Fast. Easy. Empowering. I would say those words encapsulate what cloudways does. I use it personally to host my own site as well as professionally to host many small sites. Rather than spending hundreds of dollars we can simply spend based on need with the option to always move to a larger use case as needed. It’s amazing and it is literally seconds to set things up.
What does Cloudways not do well? Team management leaves a lot to be desired and seems like an afterthought.
What do you wish you had known about Cloudways before using? I wish I knew more about some of the sharing and collaborative limitations but the service is solid as is and this doesn’t deter me from being a customer.
Have you used a competitor to Cloudways? If so, how does it compare? Digital Ocean. AWS
