Here’s my honest experience with Cloudways and I’ll show you how to install WordPress, migrate an existing website & take it live. Then we’ll learn how to setup your email with rackspace & connect to Gmail. Free Trial: (Coupon: HOGAN for 10% off for 3 months) – no CC required

  1. What is the true cost of this hosting? I see that it has some sort of 0.0124 per hour charge or something like that. What does that mean?

    Also, your guide is super helpful. Thank you for this.

  2. Thank you man! It was one the best tutorial about cloudways ans emailing, what do you suggest for email marketing for those who has cloudways as a hosting provider and use wordpress? Elastic email or mailchimp?

  3. Excellent tutorial Hogan! Clear and easy to follow. I noticed when you went to install SSL Certificate it requested 2 email addresses below! Can they my your gmails or do they have to be from the domain?

  4. Excellent and clear, well done. Quick question, when you set up the Primary Domain name, what is the relevance of that if you plan on importing several websites with different domains?

  5. very nice review and instruction

    to use Rackspace, this is the email for the entire-server, correct?
