Frequently Asked Questions

PHP Hosting typically refers to web hosting services that support websites and applications built using the PHP programming language. It provides the necessary server environment to run PHP scripts and serve PHP-based content to users. PHP Hosting can come in various forms, including shared hosting, VPS hosting, and dedicated hosting. It focuses primarily on providing the infrastructure to run PHP code effectively.

Furthermore, we have deployed a platform-wide firewall which ensures data safety and security.

Cloudways uses auto-healing servers, and an automated backup mechanism where all of the backup data is stored on an offsite location.

Cloudways currently supports MariaDB 10.0. However, newer servers are available with Debian 10 distribution and MariaDB 10.4 as a default database. You can always upgrade to the latest database version, e.g., MariaDB 10.6, as per your requirements.
