Your Cloud Account. 100%.

Since there no contractual lock-ins, you will own (and pay for) cloud infrastructure on top of the chosen cloud provider. This way you keep full control and ownership of your data—the most critical asset—and have the complete freedom of moving away from Cloudways service with your servers and data if for whatever reason you are unhappy with the service provided. Rest assured, there will be no hassles in moving your setup from one cloud provider to the other.

Separate Database & Server Roles

For better web performance, you can choose to have separate database servers. This also makes scaling (up or down) very easy and adds redundancy to the overall setup.

Multi-Tier Server Setup

PowerCloud offers the perfect solution for hosting your app on multiple web/DB servers for increased redundancy. We can scale your web/DB servers automatically or on-demand anytime you want.

Root Access

You have unrestricted root access for custom installation or performing root functions on your servers. In addition, you have SSH/SFTP access to the servers as well.

Fully Managed Backups (Onsite/Offsite)

Apart from hourly, daily and monthly onsite backups of your applications, we also have managed offsite backups for increased redundancy and reliability in the setup. View our complete backup policy.

Automatic Scalability

We've got you covered for unexpected traffic spikes. We work very closely with you to identify potential spikes and advice to have a flexible infrastructure depending on your unique requirements, so your site can serve excessive concurrent traffic without any downtime.

Automatic Failover

Once you are with Cloudways, you won't have to worry about your website going down. If you choose to have automatic failover in the mix, your site will be up instantaneously on the backup server if the master server goes down.

High Availability

ant to deploy servers and backup servers in multiple availability zones for high availability? Cloudways has got you covered. We will deploy automatic high availability (multi AZ) setup to make sure your website is up and serving visitors even if one datacenter is down.


All servers and applications are placed behind a secure firewall (Shorewall/Windows Firewall), which restricts unauthenticated access and thwarts hacking attempts. All servers and applications are accessed only through pre-approved IPs. We will also do the configuration, monitoring, management and troubleshooting of firewalls.

Server Security Patches

We take care of it all - Security, OS updates and patches to make sure there is no security loopholes due to outdated OS or server configurations.

SSL Integration

Whether you want to get the entire site or a portion of your site on SSL, we’ll do it and help you with existing SSL migration as well.

Secure Cloud Deployments

We increase the security of your servers by taking advance security measures that protect your servers from hacks, malware, viruses and unauthenticated access. We ensure that each server has minimal attack surface, so that it is running the minimum number of services to comply with its role.

Security Testing/Analysis of Web Applications (Add-on)

We do complete vulnerability scanning of your application to uncover any possible threats. We will also do web application security test to find out any possible SQL injection or hacking vulnerabilities. Security Analysis is available as an add-on in our member area. See how we secure your Apps.

Varnish, Memcached and APC Configuration

Varnish is highly recommended by PHP community and is one of the best PHP accelerator. We configure Varnish for frequent rich media content query caching, which not only releases significant server resources but also speeds up content delivery by up to 50%. We also manage, monitor, patch and troubleshoot varnish to give you one window management solution. Similarly, we also configure and manage Memcached for frequent database queries to further speed up the website load time and free server resources. See how you can Enable/Disable & Restart Memcached, Nginx, MySQL & Apache within few clicks.

Nginx / php-fpm deployments

Based on our long experience managing web infrastructure, we have come up with the perfect mix to speed up any website. All our deployments are based on nginx (serving static content), varnish (caching php) and apache with mod_php serving php code. This ensures compatibility with all applications and lightning speed (due to the combined effect of fast nginx delivering static content and fast varnish delivering cached php).

CDN Integration & Support

We recommend Amazon CloudFront as a CDN to further improve load time for your visitors and customers spread around different corners of the world. We help you in configuration and complete management of CDN.

DB Optimization

We tweak your database so it offers optimal performance for your application. This includes adjusting database settings to the available memory in your server(s) and the traffic pattern of your site(s).
