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).

Explained here: cloudways.com/en/pricing.php

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 😁
