Runcloud Alternative: Manage Servers & Web Apps, Elsewhere

Personally I prefer RunCloud for managing my VPS and web apps, but there are easier and better services depending on what you’re looking for.

This is my take on best alternatives worth considering.

Alternative #1 — Cloudways

Slogan: “Managed Cloud Hosting Platform”

Deploy ready-configured, fully optimized servers for unlimited web apps, on DigitalOcean, Amazon AWS, Linode, Google Compute Engine, Vultr and Kyup.

This is a fully-managed alternative, where server monitoring is done for you with extensive round-the-clock support. Change resources on the go.

You can sign up for a trial to test any of the cloud infrastructures free.

If you are looking for something easier than RunCloud, this is the most popular and competitive priced alternative for managed but feature rich cloud server hosting.

Alternative #2 — ServerPilot

Slogan: “PHP and WordPress Hosting on DigitalOcean”

This is used to be the big brother of RunCloud, but no longer can match the features of RunCloud.

Consider that ServerPilot allows only one server per a $5-$10/month subscription plan, while RunCloud allows unlimited servers for just $6.67-$12.5/month.

Unfortunately RunCloud no longer provides the referral program which allowed 20 days of free Pro account usage, while the advantage of ServerPilot is that they have a better free trial.

Personally having gotten used to the feature rich and slick Runcloud interface, I do not recommend this alternative for server management.
