Remember when we told you about our favourite WooCommerce hosts, and we mentioned a service called Cloudways, which gives low cost all-but-instant access to managed cloud hosting which doesn’t cost the Earth, and doesn’t require a sysadmin on your payroll?
Maybe you don’t. Don’t worry, the important thing is: we have scored ourselves a unique Voucher Code for Cloudways, for our clients and regular readers to use on their accounts. Result.
So what is Cloudways?
Cloudways is a managed hosting provider with a twist: they utilise a selection of cloud hosting services to quickly launch pre-configured, optimized applications. They have a pre-built WordPress and a pre-built WooCommerce installation – which is where we run into them most often, as WordPress and officially accredited WooCommerce developers – and we can say that their setup is speedy. Very very speedy indeed. And it, generally, works out of the box, too.
