Our content is hosted by SmugMug (5/5 stars), but our domain is managed by Name.com. Our site was working flawlessly for years. Suddenly, people started getting "can't find DNS" errors. We contacted both vendors. SmugMug eventually escalated the issue to a specialist who did a comprehensive analysis and testing showing the problem could be with Nam...

They have some good features but totally trip up in some major areas. Email forms will not work without custom configuration and a paid account to an email service. Varnish caching needs to be cleared on the control panel for every change to CSS or in the Wordpress admin panel. I had to spend 30 minutes with tech support just to clear caching issue...

In short, if there is an issue, you're pretty much on your own. The security of the network seems very poor. There are lots of servers in their network that are attacking others, yet their support seems not to care? Whenever I needed help, I rarely received a reply to tickets. When I paid for the VPS, they took a long time before I got anything. ...

I'm using Cloudways for my WordPress websites and also host a few client websites with them. They never let me down, the loading speed immediately improved by just moving the sites over to their servers, and the support has been able to answer all my questions. Love them!

I've been using CloudWays for 3 months now. Support is amazing, and I use the chat feature all the time. Around the clock, 24/7, I got quick and professional answers to any question that I had. Another thing that I LOVE, is the control panel they provide. You can sentup a new wordpress install in a few seconds, and you get a temp url + admin/...
