As a top-class WordPress hosting provider, Cloudways delivers on all three of these factors for growing WordPress websites – at a price point that resembles shared hosting.

  • Unlimited Websites
  • No Restrictions on Plugins
  • Dedicated Cloud servers

Ease of Use, Speed, and Scalability at an Unbeatable Price, Guaranteed.


– Great speed.
– Solid support
– Super quick addition of new projects.

Migrated sites across to @Cloudways .. their varnish setup seems faster than our Litespeed config ever was, plus cost savings and more support options. So far, so good and this seems to have been a great decision.

Tried MANY plugins to speed up WordPress which do seem do make Google’s PageSpeed score better but “real” speed never really improved. Moved host after 10 years to @Cloudways and I’m amazed at REAL speed improvements, and so the transfers begin!

I got all my sites set up with Cloudways and enjoy it. Simplicity in it’s setup, and easy to manage each site/server 🤘💯

I want to give a quick shoutout to @Cloudways, the host of my site.

With the events taking place this week, I’ve received nearly a month’s worth of traffic in three days. Their server is going strong, never slowed down and remains fast despite the pressure.

Thank you!

If you’re looking for a better host I’d highly recommend cloudways – it’s who I’m with and you can scale the size of the server as needed.
