When you dont know how to set up a cloud server technically, (The LAMP stack or the PHP settings etc) Cloudways comes handy. You can easily modify the server settings with one click.
Less Appropriate - If you want to save costs, go for direct cloud providers. Setting up technical stuff is a one time job.

I would say iPage is about average. They have WordPress and Weebly for site building along with their own version, but don't offer any others. There is no cPanel which I dislike as I use that quite often with all my other clients. iPage does have a clean user interface and is probably ideal for a small non tech savvy user.

Support Rating
DigitalOcean
Technical support is just 2-3 clicks away and the Cloudways homepage and the operators are available almost 24/7. They also are able to answer any kind of question related to their services, whether economical or technical. I sometimes made mistakes while using their services and they have been keen to help me, and fixed my problems really fast.

VPS and dedicated hosting are costly, Therefore cloud hosting provides a cheaper way to own a powerful server, and IP is dedicated as well. Cloudways was the decision because:
1) Easy to set up without any linux commands we can set up the server
2) Live chat for technical help. (Excellent agents, they helped out of the scope issues too)

iPage is on the lower end of the spectrum in terms of pricing and also features. The lack of a cPanel makes it a less attractive option than almost any other company offering the same services. Also customer service and technical support are extremely frustrating and slow. I continue to use iPage only because clients have selected it for themselves and not because I chose it myself.
