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 lasts 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 off-site backups

You can choose how often you want to have backups generated. You can also choose how long they should be retained. It is even 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 unfortunately.

Cloudways expert live support

Get access to expert cloud tech support 24/7. You can also ask their live sales support any questions you might have before buying.

Hosted with the Goolge Cloud

This cloud web server is hosted in one of the top data centers in the world, part of the Google Cloud. You do get all the benefits of being hosted on the Google Cloud and the ease and functionality and support by being a customer of the Cloudways web hosting company as well.

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 1.70 GB RAM and 1 virtual CPU core, and going all the way up to 32 virtual CPU cores and 120 GB RAM.

Storage and bandwidth prices

The Google Cloud plans comes with 20 GB of storage and just 2 GB of bandwidth, but you surely can use a lot more than that. It will be billed 0.12$ per GB of storage and $0.14 per GB of bandwidth.

Data center locations

Choose between the following 11 data centers to host your websites and applications: USA - Iowa, USA - South Carolina, USA - North Virginia, USA - Oregon, Europe - London, Europe - Frankfurt, Europe - Belgium, Asia Pacific - Singapore, Asia Pacific - Sydney, Asia Pacific - Taiwan, Asia Pacific - Tokyo

Conclusion

The only reason this plan does not get top ratings of 90%+ is because of the pricing. Similar plans with similar resources per cloud server has lower prices. I don't know if the extra value of being hosted on the Google Cloud is worth the price increase.

Computing intensive server

These types of cloud hosting plans have more power and faster CPU cores better suitable for CPU intensive tasks
