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)

I've used some of the major hosting providers including GoDaddy, Bluehost, and Siteground but none of them have been as easy to maintain and deploy as Cloudways. The Cloudways interface is easy on the eyes. Tools are easier to find compared to the other hosting provider's dashboard. Not having to use WHM and cPanel is a relief.

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.

Cloudways support is firstly way quicker and technology-oriented. It's useful when you're really in a jam and urgently need assistance.

Namecheap may offer a cheap package but their hosting lacks performance. Siteground, on the other hand, is a decent solution but isn't as flexible as Cloudways and despite their improved Cpanel, still falls behind.
