Features and Ease of Use
Cloudy 360 Technologies offers four shared plans on the cloud. These plans are suitable for startups, growing businesses, and high traffic websites. They have the following features:
- 99.9% Uptime guarantee
- Free SSL certificate
- From 500MB to unlimited disk space
- From 40GB to unlimited bandwidth
With any of its plans, you get an unlimited number of email addresses. Its highest plan offers unlimited FTP accounts, databases, and subdomains.
An SSL certificate is essential to websites that collect sensitive details like passwords and credit card information. They are also important for websites that do not, due to Google flagging websites without one. You don’t want your visitors getting security warnings when they come to your website. It’s nice to have and this company provides it to its customers for free.
The benefits of cloud hosting over regular shared hosting are numerous. Usually, different servers handle the hosting, so there’s hardly any downtime. Plus, it provides speedy performance.
Cloudy 360 Technologies makes no mention of beginner-friendly tools, but it does support WordPress and in connection, PHP. It also supports Python.
Pricing and Support
Cloudy 360 Technologies’ shared plans are called Swala, Chui, Twiga, and Tembo. Its prices are listed in annual rates and fall within the same range that many other hosting providers charge for similar services. Also, the company offers a free domain, but this is only applicable to its highest plan.
The smallest shared plan offers subscription options for both annual and biennial periods, whereas the other plans only offer an annual subscription. This may not be ideal for users who wish to try out the services without committing to a long duration.
Available payment methods are PayPal, offline payment, and 2checkout. There’s no money-back guarantee, which is quite frustrating, as that leaves you at risk of losing your money if the service doesn’t live up to your expectations.
Support is available via phone, email, and ticket support. Office hours are Monday – Saturday from 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM. I sent support staff an email, but never got a reply.
