Cloudy.ro began in business in 2007 as an online project of Romanian company Quanta SRL. I'd feel better if I could contact the company and actually purchase a plan online.

Overview

Cloudy.ro

If you are in a hurry, and just want the bottom line: for the same price as Cloudy.ro you can get much better servers with 24/7 support with Hostinger, so why even bother?!

Cloudy.ro is an online project of SC Quanta SRL, which was established in Oradea, Romania, in 2007. This company’s fully managed Linux servers are housed in its own Oradea data center. Cloudy.ro offers domain and virtual server hosting along with web design, website maintenance, hardware and software support services, and network design and implementation solutions.

Cloudy’s website is in Romanian.

Features and Ease of Use

Cloudy.ro

Cloudy offers four virtual server hosting plans (Q-WERTY, Q-BRICK, Q-ARK, and Q-LOUD) that come with:

  • 99% guaranteed uptime
  • 1 to 10 virtual servers
  • Linux/GNU operating system
  • Virtualmin and Cloudmin control panels
  • 3 GB to 100 GB storage
  • 40 GB to unlimited data traffic
  • Unlimited data transfer speed
  • 5 to 50 MariaDB/PostgreSQL databases
  • Selectable PHP 5.4 to 7.1
  • SSL/TLS
  • Webalizer web monitoring software
  • Free migration
  • Antivirus, antispam, and DDoS protection

The three higher plans deliver automatic website optimization using a combination of compression and caching. These plans also provide free domain management and a web application firewall (WAF).

Hosting plans come with 110 free applications — including WordPress, Drupal, phpBB, MediaWiki, Zen Cart, Horde, and OwnCloud — which can be installed easily. All plans are optimized for the Joomla CMS.

Since backups play an important role in deciding which web host to choose, you’ll want to know that Cloudy offers automatic seven-day backups.

Pricing and Support

Cloudy’s plans are competitively priced in euros. Although monthly prices are advertised, you have to commit to six or twelve months (depending on the plan you pick). Unfortunately, there is no money-back guarantee as far as I can see. Worse still, nothing happened when I clicked the “ORDER A PACKAGE!” button, so it looks like you can’t purchase a plan online.

While Cloudy’s customer support should be available via telephone and online contact form, I couldn’t contact the company by phone, and my contact form submission resulted in an error. For self-support, there is a blog that was last updated in 2017 plus two pages of frequently asked questions:

Bottom line on Cloudy.ro

Cloudy could offer what you need if you’re looking for competitively priced virtual server hosting plans. I’d feel better about this host if I could contact customer services and actually purchase a plan online.
