It gives you complete control over the scheduling and selection of the updates. Also, it saves time from manually validating if everything works fine after an update. So, you get an automated solution, ensuring your sites are up and running with no breakages.

Visual regression testing ensures nothing breaks after an update. It captures screenshots of the website before and after the updates and compares them. It also checks for visual discrepancies between images across different browsers and screens, ensuring the website's appearance remains intact.

And if anything goes awry with the update, Cloudways with SafeUpdates automatically rolls back to the most recent backup before the update, keeping your sites up and running at all times.

SafeUpdates is priced at $3/site per month for up to 5 websites, exclusive to Cloudways users. And if you have 6 or more websites, the price drops to $2/site.
