Linode vs Cloudways Managed Service

The cost of Managed Linode on is $100/month per Linode; geared towards server monitoring and disaster recovery while setting up your server or any other custom work needs to be hired separately from their service team.

With Cloudways you get an all-in-one, easy to use server management platform where you can quickly deploy ready configured Linodes; without limits. All with 24h support and full management to keep your server up to date and running.

Servers are easy to scale and pricing is pay-as-you-go for used resources at the end of the month. Free website migration is also included; or you can quickly migrate your web applications between any of the six available cloud partners.
