Adding things like database packages and advanced settings are as easy as a click
What I love about Cloudways is that it’s managed so we don’t have to deal with all the technical sophistication of VPS— that’s all handled through their beautiful and easy to use interface …. Adding things like database packages and advanced settings are as easy as a click! The customer service and documentation is awesome!

Far better than any managed hosting that I have used
The performance:cost ratio is far better than any managed hosting that I have used … Very easy to spin up new sites or add server capacity, simple to move WordPress sites on and off … and easy to manage SSH access for each project individually, or for the server as a whole.

Easy to learn and much more straight- forward than Godaddy or Dreamhost
The speed is why I moved to Cloudways …I also like that I can create different “servers” around the world since I deal with clients in various countries. The user interface is easy to learn and much more straightforward than Godaddy’s labyrinth of upsells and Dreamhost GUI.
