About

1up Cloud?

We’re a small independent cloud hosting company based out of Monterey CA. Our cloud architecture was formed out of necessity for web developers, bloggers and e-commerce entrepreneurs.

What is Cloud Hosting?

Cloud hosting is a secure, fast, reliable storage solution for your website.

When will I see results from switching to the Cloud?

After your website is successfully migrated to 1upCloud you will see a massive increase in site speed. Your entire website will be backed up DAILY. The website will be as secure as the government will allow it to be.

Why upgrade to the Cloud?

1up Cloud has truly unlimited resources, unlike other hosts. That means you can store as much data on your website as you want, and the viewers of your website will actually receive the information fast. That means, in areas with weak internet, your clients will still be able to see and find the information on your website as fast as possible. As we know in today’s society, people have very short attention spans. Fast load times are your first digital impression.

How is the host faster, why is that important?

The architecture of the server is set up to provide as much information as possible to each visitor of your website, as they need it, on demand. Whereas a traditional host provider is offering far less, a funneled system of the data. We could go on about this for days, but the simple explanation is that every host buys the cloud space from Amazon. We simply built a simpler, faster platform that provides this to our clients. We’re not in it to make a profit, we’re in it to make the content appear as fast as possible.

Will I get updates on what is updated on my site?

Yes, we give detailed monthly updates to our hosted clients. We breakdown what we updated, what version WordPress is out and if it is compatible with your plug-ins, and we make sure everything works. We take great care when we update so nothing breaks on your website.
