Cloudways vs ServerPilot?
Cloudways vs ServerPilot? I’m currently running DigitalOcean with ServerPilot. I’m pretty happy with it, but are there any other options that might work better?
I have been running with DigitalOcean + ServerPilot for a year or two and have been pretty happy. The only issue is that I am really not a server admin, don’t mind learning but realistically I am probably being penny wise and pound foolish. My time is better spent on other things. So I am looking for a managed hosting platform that is reasonable in cost.
Cloudways vs ServerPilot Pricing
I have about 30 sites on two DO servers, total cost $40/month. It looked like the Cloudways 42/month server would be a good fit — similar capacity but with CDN/caching/security built in and good support.
So I thought Cloudways might be it but I have had a frustrating 6 or 7 hours with my try-it-free account on the platform. I have migrated two sites using their plugin and neither was successful. Furthermore the chat support, while polite and reasonably responsive, didn’t seem quick to identify the issues, and at the end of it all I still don’t think I know a reliable process to migrate apps to their platform. (I should probably try one with UpdraftPlus Migrator, but it seems odd that the process they have baked into their platform does not work–at least for me. Maybe I am doing it wrong, but support was unable to tell me what mistake I was making.)
So Cloudways customers in here, tell me your experiences with them.
(I know this is a long post but hey, at least I didn’t come in here and just say “who is the best host for WordPress?” )
