If you’re a web developer, you need a web hosting provider that offers the cheapest hosting plan, best hosting features, and as well as excellent support and full backend access.

I recommend 4 web hosting company that can serve you faster and reliably each time so that your website visitors can have a great experience.

1. Cloudways - 3 Days Free

Cloudways is a managed hosting provider that emphasizes performance and simplicity. From the simple server and application launch to the ongoing server maintenance, Cloudways takes away all the hassles of server management so that you can continue to focus on growing your business.

2. Linode - 100$ Free Credit

Alt Text

Linode is a cloud hosting provider that focuses on providing Linux powered virtual machines to support a wide range of applications. Given its roots, many experts do not see it as a beginner-friendly.

3. DigitalOcean - 100$ Free Credit

Alt Text

DigitalOcean is a cloud infrastructure provider that provides cloud computing services to business entities. It is used to scale by deploying DigitalOcean applications that run parallel across multiple cloud servers without compromising performance.

4. Vultr - 100$ Free Credit

Alt Text

Vultr provides high-performance SSD cloud servers that boast a global footprint. It aims to create the most reliable and efficient service for launching a blazing fast SSD cloud server.

I tried these 4 hosting presonally for my sites and every hosting perform well but cloud hosting provider doesn't provide contact support only for server, no extra support.

If you want good contact support and security in cloud hosting then i recommend Cloudways.

If you manage complete server and server security from your own then you can go with any hosting listed above but i recommend Linode.

I hope you will choose right hosting :)

Have steered away from Cloudways in the past due to hidden limitations on their systems and there was some shady dealings with them taking quotes/testimonials from people without consent and pretending they were talking about Cloudways and featuring them on the website 🤷🏻‍♂️

Cloudways is managed hosting that's why they didn't provide full control. If you want full control then try linode or digital ocean.

Not quite... Cloudways is effectively a Control Panel (with staff members) which sits on top of your linode, digital ocean, aws server. You have to pay Cloudways fees AND your hosting fees (they bundle into 1 cost).

I agree with you but in terms of management cloudways provide cpanel and CDN.

In you don't have server management knowledge then cloudways is good but if you have server management knowledge then try cloud providers directly.

I prefer you to try then you understand the difference in terms of pricing and control 😁

I absolutely love my experience with DigitalOcean but lately I've realized that I don't want to spend my time provisioning Ubuntu servers, Nginx configurations, firewalls, etc. I have limited time to work on personal projects so for my personal projects I've been opting for Platforms as a Service that make hosting and deployments as simple as possible.

A few recommendations:

  • Heroku is the established contender in this arena, pretty simple deploys but powerful enough to be flexible.
  • Render I discovered this a few months ago, it's not overly flexible but it makes deploying a Rails app as easy as Vercel makes deploying a NextJS app.
  • Vercel I've only tried it with NextJS apps but deploying is a breeze.
  • Fly I haven't tried this one, heard good things and I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who had.
