As a complete newbie to building a website, I found Cloudabove really helpful in both setting me up to create and launch our club's new website. The customer service via live chat and e-mail was excellent, and at a very reasonable cost.

Your hosting requirements may not be as complex as you think. We usually advise you to start small and upgrade as needed & don't worry, nothing is set in stone.

If you'd like to ask us more, please do! Speak to us by phone or email and we'll make a plan for you.

Your own server is the next logical step from standard shared hosting, providing great performance & flexibility. It's also a great option if your project has more complex needs and requires a custom piece of server-side software or more physical resources such as CPU and memory/RAM.

However, as these servers are unmanaged, you will be responsible for monitoring the server and occassional maintenance tasks such as software updates. You'll also need to ensure the server is backed up.

The good news is that a control panel such as Scout (included), cPanel or Plesk can help you with day to day management and backups. Plus, we're happy to help and advise you if you're having trouble with your service — we would never leave you without support.

If you would rather not worry about maintenance at all, take a look at our Professional and Managed hosting options. Likewise, if you are looking for an option where you easily host and manage many websites, we would recommend a Reseller hosting plan.

Absolutely. All of our hosting & server plans include our comprehensive migration service, we'll manage the entire process and at a date/time that's best for you.

We understand that the concept of moving your hosting can be worrying, so please don't hesitate to contact us if you would like to discuss the process in more depth.

Premium vCPUs are up to 60% faster and deliver better storage performance as well. In short, this means your website will be much faster on a premium cloud server than a standard one.

You can still expect great performance from the V1 plan but if you have a large website (or boosting performance is your main goal), a cloud server with premium vCPUs (V2 or higher) is the way to go.

The technical specs

Our premium plans (V2 or higher) use Intel® Xeon® "Coffee Lake" or "Rocket Lake" CPUs with a base frequency of 3.2 GHz and can turbo to 5.1 GHz. Standard plans (V1) use AMD EPYC or Intel® Xeon® E5 family CPUs with an average base frequency of 2.3 GHz and can turbo to 3.2 GHz — these are industry standard processors.

Both premium and standard plans use fast, enterprise grade solid-state storage but V2 or higher benefit from NVMe™ storage in RAID (up to 5000 MB/s throughput). Whereas standard plans use SSD storage in RAID (up to 1200 MB/s throughput). NVMe™ is a perfect match for sites with larger databases.

You can upgrade or downgrade between server plans at anytime with virtually zero downtime (a simple reboot). We're also happy to put together custom servers, so if our plans don't quite meet your needs, please let us know and we'll be happy to help.

Scout

Our bespoke control panel is included with every server free of charge. Scout is light weight, easy to use and provides a modern site & server management experience. It has a lot of great features and we're continually improving Scout with each release:

  • Create & manage your servers and servers from a single control panel
  • Install and manage apps such as WordPress
  • Out of the box performance with built-in caching & image + JavaScript optimisation tools
  • Easy database & file backups
  • Free SSL certificates from Let's Encrypt
  • Built-in firewall and security features
  • Git repo management & deployment

cPanel, Plesk and DirectAdmin

We can also provide licenses for cPanel (from £18/month + VAT), Plesk (from £8/month + VAT) and DirectAdmin (£6/month + VAT). These control panel options are better suited to studios/freelancers or businesses with a large portfolio of sites.

If you're not sure which control panel you need, please don't hesitate to contact us and we'll be happy to make a recommendation based on your requirements.

We can provide any specification or type of server that you need, simply get in touch and we'll be happy to put together a solution for you.
