– 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!

Frequently Asked Questions

Managed WordPress hosting is a solution that offers the right features needed for a fast & secure online experience. It lets you leave all the hosting technicalities to the experts, so you may solely work on growing your business.

WordPress hosting is a service that lets you host your WordPress sites, but with limited features. Whereas managed WordPress hosting is a simplified solution with the right features for optimized performance, leaving all the technicalities to the hosting provider.

Normally, managed WordPress hosting providers include add-on pricing in their pricing structures, showing ambiguity in their actual rates. But Cloudways' pricing structure clearly states what you pay for the premium add-ons like Cloudflare and SafeUpdates. And even with the combined prices, you get the premium managed WordPress hosting services at the most affordable rates.

Unmanaged WordPress hosting is a service with little to no additional features, while managed WordPress hosting provides you with all the services needed to handle and maintain your server. Managed hosting is costlier than unmanaged hosting, but you save loads on the overall costs with the added benefits.

You can get started with Cloudways managed WordPress hosting for as low as $10. But you can also get premium add-ons at small increments like automatic WordPress updates for an additional $3, Cloudflare Enterprise at $5, etc.

Yes, managed WordPress hosting providers offer automatic backups scheduled to run at regular intervals. And with Cloudways, you can also customize the default backup settings.

Cloudways managed WordPress hosting combines affordability with high performance and robust security to deliver a comprehensive solution. With 99% uptime, fast loading times, and 24/7 support, you get better performance results at lower costs than other hosts, including SiteGround, WPEngine, and Kinsta.

Yes, you can host unlimited sites on Cloudways managed servers without paying an additional penny. However, hosting providers like WPEngine or Kinstra impose extra charges for hosting multiple sites.

Consider the following factors while choosing the best managed WordPress hosting plan:

Cloudways offers one free migration to all its users and charges for subsequent migrations. However, you can conduct free unlimited migrations using the Cloudways migrator plugin.

Your WordPress site's security depends upon your hosting provider's protection mechanism, whether an unmanaged or a managed host. Cloudways provides a secure WordPress hosting environment backed with features like Bot Protection, Cloudflare Enterprise, and WAF, among others, so you're safe from DDoS attacks, malicious traffic & malware.

Before migrating your site to any hosting provider, you must check their transparency in pricing and features. WordPress hosting providers often don't mention server specifications in their plans, so you remain unaware of what you're signing for.

But with Cloudways, you get a clear picture of all server specifications and have the liberty to scale anytime via application/server monitoring. So, you are only charged for the resources you use, saving loads on extra costs.

Yes, most managed WordPress hosting providers restrict your usage. Like WPEngine limits specific plugins and themes, and Kinsta restricts PHP workers on their plans. But with Cloudways, you remain free of such restrictions and use any theme, plugins, or PHP workers without blockages.
