Frequently Asked Questions

Managed WordPress hosting is a form of web hosting that makes installing and managing your WordPress websites easier, where most technical and server-side issues are managed by the hosting provider. Managed WordPress hosting means freeing up your time from having to handle security risks, backups, monitoring your WordPress sites’ uptime, and scaling your infrastructure when your WordPress site grows.

Cloudways provides managed WordPress hosting services but doesn’t stop at WordPress. You can also host other applications, such as Joomla, Magento, Drupal, and other PHP-based apps.

With Cloudways you get world-class web hosting and superior WordPress hosting. You don’t need to pick between a shared hosting account, VPS solutions or dedicated servers. All our plans offer top-of-the-line cloud hosting provided by DigitalOcean, Linode, Vultr, Amazon AWS and Google Cloud Platform. Cloudways is a managed hosting platform that gives you virtually unlimited cloud hosting resources to launch your web apps at very affordable prices.

As a fully managed hosting company, Cloudways takes care of the maintenance of your servers. You still get your own control panel to launch and manage your sites. You can host unlimited WordPress sites and other PHP-based apps from a single, user-friendly control panel. Most tasks can be done in just a few clicks.

At Cloudways, we believe no one should stress about their web hosting platform being down or not working. We put a lot of effort and resources into making that a reality, with the help of our expert support staff.

Standard Support: It’s free and includes 24/7/365 access to Live Chat assistance. Every request is routed to a specifically trained Support Team member.

Advanced Support add-on: For businesses running mission-critical websites. The Advanced add-on opens up a wider range of Cloudways expertise. You get a dedicated account manager, on-demand database and tech-stack customization, deeper application-level support, and proactive monitoring.

Premium Support add-on: Includes everything in Standard and Advanced support, with access to a private Slack channel, that connects you 24/7/365 to our Senior Customer Support Engineers, and direct phone support.

Security is a top priority at Cloudways. We take a proactive approach to keeping your servers safe and secure from malicious traffic, malware and attacks.

To ensure your cloud server security, these features are available on all hosting plans:

  • Dedicated Firewalls
  • 1-Click SSL Certificate for free

  • Regular Security Patching
  • Two-Factor Authentication
  • Bot Protection

You can find alternatives to Pressable that offer web hosting and managed WordPress hosting. The main con with Pressable is that they’re are a managed WordPress hosting provider and that’s it. Hosting websites that are not built in WordPress is not an option with Pressable.

Cloudways gives you reliable WordPress hosting for high traffic WordPress sites, but it doesn’t stop there. You can launch unlimited sites using any other PHP-based application.

We believe no other hosting service gives you the same performance and choice as Cloudways does, which makes us one of the best alternatives to Pressable.
