Our main research article (this post) provides a quick overview of the best hosting options currently on the market. The following posts continue our research article.
Let’s face it. Cloudways is only popular because their affiliate program is the best-paying. Their pricing was never the cheapest and the stack was never the fastest. However, Cloudways pricing is still fair when compared to overpriced crap like Kinsta/WPEngine.
I think Cloudways stack and company are too bloated to evolve with the times. I don’t expect any improvement from them over the years and see myself recommending them less and less, if even at all. The only reason why I ever recommended Cloudways was because they offered noob support. If not for the noob support, I wouldn’t recommend them at all.
