Pros: I've been using CloudWays for a long time now, basically since they started and never had any issues so far. They always have good deals for new users, and prices have always been really good for the service they provide. You can pay as you go, which means that you only pay for what you use. They definitely make the life of a developer way easier, making it easy for anyone (even if you don't have experience) to install any CMS and/or PHP based system. Ohhh and let's not forget.. their customer service is a 10/10.

Cons: So far I have not found anything bad about CloudWays, specially now that they just updated their website making it faster and even easier to use. If you're used to do everything through cPanel, get ready to learn how to manage your servers/websites differently (It will only take few minutes if you consider yourself a fast learner).

Overall: I would definitely recommend CloudWays to anyone that's looking for a place where to host their websites. It's way better and easier to use than any other server/cloud/hosting company.

Pros: - Support staff (live chat and email) are quick, extremely helpful, and actually quite knowledgeable

- The admin panel makes it easy to move/stage/clone apps, and scale your servers on the fly

- A number of one-click installs available (WordPress, Laravel, etc.)

- Great pricing (small margins above base DigitalOcean pricing)

Cons: No reseller/agency options available. Creating external access accounts is a bit limited (can't allow a guest user to only access a single app DB, etc.)

Overall: Whenever I have an issue, one of the Cloudways engineers is ready to help me out pretty quickly. Creating and cloning staging apps for our clients apps is super easy with GitHub integration and pull/push/merge options.

Pros: I have paid hundreds and thousand of dollars for servers for my websites that don't come near the speed and quality I get with coulways.

And the price is something to consider heavily.

You can select a very cheap server and have your "applications" up and running in literaly less than 5 minutes.

You can transfers your wordpress websites (or blogs) in a matter of minutes with a free plugin that they provide.

Their support is way over than awesome. I have asked so many questions, I have requested so many things and all I get from them is a very nice reply and a a fast response.

your websites will be FASTER!!!!

Overall: Cloudways is the best, simply the best at the best price.

Pros: Cloudways was so easy to set up. I was able to get a server on Digital Ocean setup in a matter of minutes, and then 6 websites (as applications) setup and live in no time.

What I like the most

- Customer service is awesome. They help me solve a problem that I caused, and corrected it for me.

- You can spin up a new server or application very quickly

- Adding email and CDN is cost effective and easy to do

- Ability to scale my server based on my needs

- No month-to-month contracts

- Interface is clean and easy to navigate and 100% better than cPanel

What I'm experimenting with

- They offer staging environments but they are still in beta. I'll be playing around with them a little more in the future to better understand how I can use them in my workflow. They do offer the ability to clone staging environments to a live server with a click of a button so that looks promising.

Cons: Their online documentation isn't as detailed as it needs to be. I found myself Googling a few things to get my applications and domain setup correctly. Many times I found the answers I needed on another blog post or by piecing together info from several differnt sources. I hope they are able to update their docs in the future and can provide a more detailed guide for domain provisioning.

Overall: I've been using Cloudways for a little while but I'm really really liking it. I came from a shared hosting plan and cPanel and couldn't be happier. I feel like I can finally grow my web businesses without all the constraints that normally come with shared hosting and dealing with typical hosting companies.

I love it.

Pros: I switched from an AIG owned shared server to this, the pricing is not far off from what I was paying and the benefits of using Cloudways are insane. It's so fast, easy to use, and affordable.

Cons: They really need to implement a few things, first, if you have the option to add team members, fix the bug that doesnt allow you to add an existing member of cloudways. I don't want 100 different logins for all my clients. Give me an easy to use dashboard for all of them. Second, add a whitelabel option so I can resell this to clients. Third, make the SMTP setup better, or add an email server to the servers that you sell. 4, customer support is decent at best, compared to Flywheel it is truly lacking.

Pros: The Easiest Configuration Setup:

It was a difficult to setup and maintain cloud servers but Cloudways made things very easy for their users that means you don't need to be expert to configured or maintain your virtual serves.

I have been doing R&D on different Managed cloud hosting services and I have not found any similarity in term of ease, which Cloudways is giving to their users.

24/7 Support Available:

Customer support has been a core part of Cloudways pitch since they were founded.

Their CS staff is well train; and they have the solution right away of any technical difficulties.

They are available on Chat & Tickets. You may reach them via Chat for immediate solution.

Best Features:

Free Trail

You can install unlimited applications

They provide auto back up for websites.

User-friendly panel.

Cons: There really hasn't been any major issues.

They can get more business, if training material provided for the layman users.

Pros: The best part is being up and running in minutes without having to do anything. Well, almost anything. The nice thing also is having a choice between hosting like Digital Ocean or AWS, Azure, etc.

Cons: Like all awesome, modern things, when it hits a snag it is really frustrating. The interface is complicated, but it is functional.

Love the ease of use and functionality of Cloudways!
