Alternatives Considered

Cloudways

I liked Cloudways more than other websites due to its simplicity and how clear their website was (and still is). It is the first server hosting platform I ever used.

Liquid Web

The only other serious contender was DigitalOcean. Media Temple and GoDaddy are both terrible. While I liked DigitalOcean and the amount of flexibility it offered, we opted for a managed solution to lighten the workload for us. So, in the end, we picked Liquid-Web and we have been extremely happy with their service.
