I used Cloudways for my personal sites and soon realized my company needed to be using Cloudways. The platform has the richest feature set of any hosting provider and their scalability is unmatched with many affordable options. We are moving our sites to Cloudways, especially after GoDaddy's own support platform crashed and they were unable to help me. We were seeing incredibly slow server latency with GoDaddy and even their WHM & cPanel were lagging. This was using a dedicated server as well. They solved our issue of server latency, backups, CDN, etc.
  • Automatic Daily One Click Restore Backups
  • Integrated CDN
  • Easy & Intuitive Alternate Interface to cPanel and WHM
  • Very Affordable for High Specs
  • 24/7 Customer Support is Extremely Helpful
  • Serve & Application Management is a Breeze
  • Choose from Multiple Server Locations
  • CDN isn't free, but reasonably priced
I would not hesitate to tell others to join Cloudways.
They answer quick and always help solve my problems. Their documentation is also robust.

I use CloudWays to host our website. Server performance is good and the website UI is intuitive and really clear.
It makes me feel way more in control over what I am doing. Chat support is educated, fast, and helpful. I have made some configuration and payment mistakes in the past and they always helped me.
  • Good control panel interface with many settings.
  • Simple payment method.
  • PayPal is not supported.
  • Some Norwegian credit cards might not work properly.
In my scenario (a WordPress website with WooCommerce on it) the website is always responsive and easy to navigate. It is using custom fonts and more than 10 shop products that are loading fast.
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.

Cloudways are being used to host our websites. For business and even personal use. Also, we use it to host and operate our company CRM on one of its applications. Everyone uses it and it's also used as a cloud hosting solution as well. It helps solve the problem of slow websites and crammed server space with little resources.
  • Support: they're on the ball when it comes to that and is responsive and proficient.
  • The security of their applications. They're layered with state of the art protection so it is easy to maintain and manage.
  • Pricing: for what's offered the pricing is quite convenient and affordable.
  • More personal application help.
  • Easier application installation just like WordPress websites.
  • A free tier to try the product/some kind of trial.
For high traffic websites where speed and performance are critical. It is especially important for massive fluctuation in traffic and usage. If you don't want to be forced into an astronomical hosting bill/package with their vertical scaling(increase resource as needed) it is useful. If you're also busy and want help and additional techniques in maintaining your websites, they're perfect for that.
It's decent. I have seen a bit of disorganization sometimes. Not sure if it's with staff turnover but despite that, it's very good, most of the time.

Their bot helps you find stuff faster everyone seems quite competent and willing to have a look at your issue themselves rather than refer to someone else which is usually quite frustrating.
