For Cloud WordPress hosting, Cloudways is possibly the most common alternative.
Cloudways is a managed tool, rather than providing its own hosting infrastructure, that allows you to choose your own cloud hosting from the following cloud services:
Cloudways manages setting it up for WordPress until you select your services and also offers you valuable tools such as staging sites, automated backups, storage, etc.
The important point to understand is that while you do get a decent amount of versatility, you don't get root access to the servers. This is different from any other resources on this page that are similar.
Pricing depends on the preferred services and cloud provider. In total, Cloudways costs almost double what it would cost to host the cloud itself (this is what the service and help you pay for). A $5 DigitalOcean droplet will cost $10 through Cloudways,
For example: For a single small server, this makes Cloudways very inexpensive. But there are more affordable options on this page if you have "big servers or several servers.
