WordPress hosting provider CloudOptimus is based in Miami, Florida. Although the company doesn’t say when it started its journey, its LinkedIn and Twitter profiles say it was established on September 2, 2016. Despite being a relatively new entrant into the industry, this company has made its mark by offering blazing-fast boutique WordPress hosting services that are designed to meet the needs of popular authors and professional bloggers.
The CloudOptimus.com website is in English.
Features and Ease of Use
CloudOptimus offers six cloud hosting plans that come with 20 GB to 150 GB storage and are capable of handling a vast number of page views. Some standard features of the plans are:
- Super-fast hosting
- Free SSL
- 15+ mechanisms to stop malicious attacks
- Multiple levels of automatic backups
- Free migration and setup
- Automatic updates
Since all the plans offer the same features except for the storage and page views, you simply need to choose your plan based on these two criteria. While the company allows up to three sites per server, it highly recommends having only one site per server.
How can CloudOptimus provide such super-fast hosting? Firstly, it uses enterprise-grade SSDs and advanced low-level server caching. Secondly, its image optimization automatically reduces the size of images uploaded to your WordPress Media Library, with no loss of information. Thirdly, the content delivery network (CDN) ensures that your content is distributed optimally around the world.
Pricing and Support
This company’s cloud hosting plans are priced on par with the industry average. You can pay for these plans in U.S. dollars on a monthly or yearly basis, with two months free when you make an annual commitment.
You needn’t worry too much about making a commitment since CloudOptimus offers an incredible 200% 30-day money-back guarantee. Not only will you get back 200% of the money you’ve paid, but also assistance with moving back to your old host.
You can reach the CloudOptimus customer support team via telephone, support ticket, and email. Since this host looks so promising, I was doubly disappointed that my exploratory email went unanswered. Unfortunately, there are no self-support resources as far as I can see.
