Some time ago I was looking for a new hosting platform; my options were to remain with cloudways or move back to Plesk after they started supporting Debian 10 which uses MariaDB.
But I don’t want to manage servers in the meantime and I do not want to spend much on hosting, so while doing my search I found pressable web hosting, it’s a manage hosting that is owned by Automattic yes the people that own wordpress.com, jetpack, and others.
After checking their plans, they are suitable for us here at krafty sprouts media and they speak English so it will be easy to explain things and they will understand.
Don’t get me wrong clouways are fine and support is ok but sometimes it’s hard passing a message.
While I am leaving cloudways is that they are selling a $20 server as $43 for vultr, the server is always running out of RAM and CPU which also impacts performance as I can’t run automated services like using Link whisper, Yoast indexing because the dashboard becomes too slow and I have to wait for the process to finish.
Another thing is when opening multiple posts to edit links whisper won’t work on some of them due to not having enough resources.
We still use cloudways for thegloor.com since pressable does not accept its kind of site.
My experience so far using pressable is GREAT, support is good, they even migrated all 6 sites themselves for FREE, and they go the extra miles to help-out with few issues that have arrived.
My displeasure is that the dashboard lacks a lot and would need some improvement, for starters you can’t see the statics until you open each site, in this aspect kinsta beats it hands down.
I have also noticed importing demo content from the theme does not work well with the theme.
Hopefully, they will improve on the platform and also keep their services GREAT. With pressable we pay $90/m for 10 WordPress install and 150, 000-page views.
The UI looks like a 2010 project hope there will be an improvement in that regards soon, for now so long price is not an issue we will remain for a long time.
