    Cloud Servers for WordPress, Joomla, etc.

    I just thought I would throw this out as a recommendation for cloud-based servers.  I have recently evaluated a company called Cloudways.  It is a Managed hosting platform for WordPress, Joomla, etc.  It has its merits and then some.  If there is a single service that GoDaddy could offer this would be it for me!  Many clients want feature-rich applications, and are starting with a small traffic volume.  By starting on a cloud server, memory and resource intensive applications could be installed from the beginning and the scaling then becomes one of of adding bandwidth and storage.  Much easier than doing a server migration, and also offers good revenue.

     

    Here's a quick example.  My client wants a site that will accept orders from a customer that are forwarded to their dropship fulfillment partner.  They also want a multi-level marketing type setup and backend.  With some tweaking, this can be accomplished through WP/Woocommerce API and third-party plugins.  This is a real resource hog when it comes to execution.  A good cloud-based server allocation solves all of the problems, plus allows for growth.

     

    Thanks,

    Hi @ccarfi

    Thanks for the update!  I will, in fact try them out ASAP!  Any chance community members could get a discount/reward as part of the launch?  Just had to ask, LOL. Smiley Happy
