Top web hosting provider for the cloud

With Cloudways you can get access to the best cloud hosting companies in the world. All with easy to use interfaces and an expert support team ready to assist. Cloudways gives away free trial accounts to anyone that want to try them out. The trial last for 3 days and you don't even need to enter any credit card details to try it out. It is available for all of the different cloud hosting providers they are partners with, but only for starter plans. You can quickly scale the web server after the trial though, to meet your server resource requirements.

Plan features

The CloudwaysBot is a server assistant that will monitor your servers, applications, billing issues, and overall performance. You can set up the alerts and recommendations you want to receive. You also get access to two Cloudways developed WordPress plugins. One for migrating your sites there, and one plugin that is supposedly best in class when it comes to caching WordPress sites.

Daily offsite backups

You can select yourself how often you want to have the automatically backups generated. You can also choose for how long they should be retained. It is also possible to generate backups on demand. $0.033/GB per server will be applied for off-site backup storage.

Lack of payment options

Only accepting credit and debit cards is a drawback to all the Cloudways plans ufortunately.

Cloudways expert live support

Scale your server as needed

There are lots of levels for scaling your server to just have the amount of resources you require. Starting at just 1 GB RAM and 1 CPU core, and going all the way up to 32 CPU cores and 192 GB RAM.

Same price whether you pay monthly or yearly. Price is currently on sale by 25% to 33% which means you get a decent discount for your first order. You can lock in a long length billing cycle for maximum discount!

All Hostwinds plans with cPanel have auto SSL which give all your websites https for free and automatically. The cost of upgrading to SSD drives depends on which VPS plan you choose. SSD is optional, but we included the cost for that feature in our price. cPanel VPS licence costs $13/mo and that is also included in our listed price to make it easier to compare with the other plans. cPanel is an optional extra. Softaculous is another $2/mo. $2/mo per extra standard IP address. Hostwinds also offer DDos protected IP addresses, as well as C-Class IP addresses. Basic server monitoring is another $5/mo. Cloud backups makes sure your data is safe and accessible and costs only $1/mo and is performed daily. WindSpeed is a one time service offered by Hostwinds which claims to be able to provide information which can be used to significantly speed up a website. Windshield is a security extra which adds a shield to your site.

Data center location

Choose between Seattle and Dallas in the USA to be your server's location.

24/7 USA based support team

I have mostly had great interactions with the Hostwinds technical support team. For technical support requests you need to submit a ticket. They have been amazing to me and always helped out fixing anything I've asked them. Sometimes though they can be pretty slow with their responses and fixing server issues. This is why I would think twice about using this web host for very important websites. If you are not that reliant on fast support, then you could save a bit by hosting with this host. They do have 24/7 live chat sales support on their website (popup in the bottom right when visiting their website from a desktop computer).

Conclusion

If you need web hosting on a server in the USA then I would strongly suggest to consider a Hostwinds plan. They get good scores from me for having lots of payment options, USA based support team, long money back guarantees and the best uptime guarantees. They also allow adult content to be hosted with them on all of their plans.

I would have liked to see SSD storage as in included feature at no extra cost. The possibility to scale up or down your plan (except disk space, that can't be scaled down) like in the cloud is neat. With a huge selection of 10 different VPS plans you are sure to find a plan that suits your needs.
