Fully Managed Cloud Hosting
Cloudways offers fully managed cloud hosting services. They take care of everything related to hosting – right from configuring and patching the server to installing and updating your applications.
Cloudways hosts your applications on a dedicated cloud server in a highly secure environment. All servers are loaded with automatic firmware and OS patches. A secure firewall ensures that the server and the applications it hosts are safe from unauthorized access and malicious attempts.
Cloudways makes it super easy to deploy your application on a cloud server. All you need to do is select your cloud infrastructure and the application you want to install. In a matter of about 7 minutes, you will not just have your application running on the cloud but it will also be highly charged to give lightening performance, ready with all the tools to give you complete control.
For example, if you want to install WordPress on Digital Ocean, select Digital Ocean as your cloud infrastructure and WordPress as your application. This will not only save you from the hassle of setting up your server but also from the tedious process of manually installing WordPress. As and when any update is available for WordPress, it will be automatically applied to your installation.
If you are looking to install SSL certificate, you can do that too in a few clicks. Just use the unique tool for this purpose placed right inside your account manager; follow some simple instructions and you are done with adding and configuring your SSL settings.
All Powerful Control Panel
A powerful control panel with easy to use interface is in fact what differentiates Cloudways from traditional cloud hosting providers. There are over 15 metrics related to server and applications that you can monitor from your control panel, without the slightest confusion. This helps you keep a close eye on the performance on your server and application alike.
Be it cloning, taking backups, restoring or scaling, everything is just a click away… And so is the management of your server (stopping, restarting or refreshing critical services, customizing your server settings, etc.). You can manage your MySQL database using the built-in MySQL Manager without having to install any external software.
You can host as many domains as you wish to; there is no restriction whatsoever. When you fall short of the server space or bandwidth allocated under your plan, you can scale up your server without having to move your websites. They also offer staging URLs to build and test a new website before you make it live.
If you are looking to have email set up on your own domain for higher security or to make it look professional, Cloudways offers email add-on, with both, free as well as paid options. This would be great asset for sending newsletters and transactional emails.
If you need more than one person to work on a project hosted on the server, you will want to give more people access to it. Cloudways offers an effective solution through Invite Team feature to take care of such situations. It allows you to add multiple team members with different access options, facilitating team work in developing and enhancing your applications or other projects.
