How Cloudways stacks up VS other managed cloud hosts

When you’re looking for managed hosting, there’s only one thing you really want to know: “Which one will give me the best performance for the lowest price?” We ran tests to find out, and the numbers speak for themselves:

MONTHLY VISITS

BANDWIDTH

STORAGE

Visits, bandwidth, and storage included in small business-scale plans for WPEngine, Kinsta, and Cloudways. See full details of our test here.

Whether you run an agency, a small business or a blog with WordPress, you get better performance with Cloudways, hands-down

Other managed hosting plans put limits on the number of visits and websites you can have, so you max out on traffic well before you use up the “high-performance” server resources you paid for.

WITH OTHER MANAGED HOSTS …

You get locked into low traffic and website limits, while STILL having to pay extra for performance “add-ons” like Redis and NGinx.

WITH CLOUDWAYS …

You can serve 10 to 50 TIMES the visitors per month on as many websites as you want, without sacrificing speed or paying extra fees.

“More visitors sounds great — but what about speed?”

If you think a 10X boost in visitors has to come with a catch, think again: Not only does Cloudways handle an astonishingly higher volume of traffic, it significantly outperforms on server response times, to boot.

The secret to Cloudways’ (shockingly good) performance

Time and again, businesses see a boost in speed & uptime just by switching to Cloudways. Why?

Super speed compared to other shared web hosting plans

The thing I like with Cloudways its super speed as compared to other shared web hosting plans available in the market. The price of the cloudways is so reasonable, and anyone can start with its basic plan of $10. The customer support team is so talented and supportive and readily available to resolve any concerns.

Not only cost less than what I was paying, but also so much faster

I needed to move our busy e-commerce website hosted on a shared hosting environment to a faster web host. Cloudways not only cost less than what I was paying, but it’s also so much faster. We went from our website taking over 10-seconds to load to under 2-seconds. Very impressed.
