Scalable, Super Fast, & Secure Magento Hosting
Our Clients Love us because we never compromise on these features
Helpful for Long-Term Strategic Partnership
Cloudways is an important strategic partner of LitExtension that provides a managed Cloud Hosting platform for both individuals, teams, and businesses. Your Platform-as-a-service cloud servers impress me with a set of fantastic features that allow users to scale up hosting resources.
Similar to LitExtension, Cloudways defines its mission as ensuring customer satisfaction. This is why the partnership between Cloudways and LitExtension is beneficial for store owners, developers, freelancers, and web agencies as well.
We feel extremely confident in hosting our clients’ stores. Not only this, but we also feel our partnership with Cloudways is from one specialist to another who both have a deep understanding of Magento and Ecommerce.
Mike Barnett – Founder
Fulfill the Recommended Hosting Stack
We think it’s reliable. With Cloudways, it’s a matter of entrusting the server works to you guys and not having to worry about a thing. Our experience has been rock solid, and it’s what we want from a Magento hosting provider.
Advanced Cache Enablement
Solid Baseline for Magento PWA Projects
When it comes to security, Cloudways delivers beyond expectations. 1-click Let’s Encrypt SSL makes it effortless for SimiCart to meet Magento PWA security requirements (HTTPS). On top of that, there are dedicated, OS-level firewalls to provide an additional level of security for the new website. With all these layers of Magento security in place, Al-Bahar can now confidently venture into the future without care.
Server Scalability Was Our Challenge
Cloudways was able to provide Limesharp a solution that helped them deal with the challenges of managing the diverse client requirements. Thanks to Cloudways easy server scaling features and pre-configured caches, Limesharp was able to scale their clients’ websites to ensure uptime during traffic crunches (such as the Holiday Season sales), all within very reasonable budgets.
We are able to adjust server configurations ourselves such as increasing memory limits, timeouts etc. And it’s all done through a nice web interface with engineers if we need advice and help.
Integrating Advanced Server Technologies
Our second problem was integrating advanced cache to the server. This was solved because Cloudways stack is built with top of the breed technology with pre-configured caches such as Varnish, Memcached, PHP-FPM, NGINX, and Redis. Particularly for Magento 1 stores, Cloudways offers a built-in full page cache, powered by Amasty, that takes care of the store speed issues.
Meet the Expectations
Cloudways also understood that they had to deliver above expectations because the bar was already set high. With expert and caring support, they were able to deliver what Limesharp expected. Additionally, Limesharp was able to get great value through the Cloudways Premium Support Add-on.
Test Application Before Pushing it Live Server
Changes and revisions in client Changes and revisions in clients’ websites are an unavoidable challenge for agencies like Limesharp who take care of a number of Magento and WordPress websites. The Cloudways Staging feature greatly simplifies the workflows and allows Limesharp to test and alter the websites without affecting the Live versions.
Currently, we have multiple clients on Cloudways using Magento & WordPress. We also host our staging environments on the platform which enables us to have standalone instances that are identical to the live environment,” adds Ed, while emphasizing on hassle-free management of multiple websites and importance of staging features in the day-to-day agency operations.
Leverage More Power & Control
The ability to scale and clone sites ourselves and install SSL certificates gives us more control.
Helps in Free-up Server Resources
The caching & server components on offer with Cloudways are great. They give us the ability to deploy a variety of apps safely in the knowledge that the right components are there to squeeze every last bit of performance out of them!
Magento 2 in particular is a powerful platform that needs server components that make the average hosting platform feel inadequate. In fact, recent versions of Magento 2 go as far to make it impossible to host a store without server technologies such as Elasticsearch. Having these components already set up and optimized when we create our app is a huge boon.
Best Solution To Meet Client Expectations
Simply put, Cloudways offer us the reliability and robustness our clients need.
