  1. I must admit, this video helped me to switch from Hostgator to Cloudways. I'm still a newbie and some configurations were different in Cloudflare than what I saw on the screen in this tutorial. But it did help tremendously. Thanks for spending your time making the video. I am all set up and the hosting is 100% faster.

  2. Hey, Alex. Just want to thank you for your terrific tutorial video. I especially appreciated some of the performance tweaks you presented to improve performance on the Cloudways server. Also, the free Send In Blue option to get started with an Email service. What I don't quite understand is the difference between having an in-house Email address (with which your site can be contacted directly by people and perhaps provided by Rackspace)… and one that you would need for marketing purposes and using an email marketing tool like Send In Blue. Should you ever decide to provide a tutorial on how to set up these two different email platforms inside a WordPress platform (perhaps with Send In Blue and Clooudways integration), please send me a link to your PayPal account and I will make a fair contribution (there really is no such thing as a free lunch, and the workman is worthy of his hire – Luke 10:7).

  3. Hey, amazing video first of all 🙂 if I have wp rocket and Cloudflare what does make more sense to install in terms of speed? the wp rocket plugin or the Cloudflare plugin
    Thank you 🙏

  4. Hello Alex, I am very interested in a tutorial on integrating ZOHOmail into cloudways. Thank you for your wonderful work
