    Looking for cloud solution


    We were with dreamhost, but for various reasons we are distancing ourselves from them.

    We tried to get a cloud solution going with midphase, but are finding it overly complicated, primarily because they don't have nameservers we can use, unless the domains are registered through them.

    That being said what we need is a scalable and managed solution that is easy to setup and maintain, but with root access so we can do customizations as needed.

    You can try out this cloud provider. Basically whip yourself up a VM and go to town. I run my whole network in a VDC within their cloud.

    Above looks a good solution. However, if you wish to have root access and full server control, you may also consider cheap VPS solution.
    We have reliable VPS plans from EUR 7.99 /mo.
    PM or live chat with us if you are interested and we can also provide you IP address for testing.

    Cheers!

    I'm sure there'd be a genuine reason for Dreamhost to disallow using their NS. That's usually done to avoid downtime to customers website just incase their DNS goes down for any reason. But, as a work-around you can always use your own DNS for the site.

    As far as I know scalable and managed solutions are provided by Hostgator, you can try to read reviews about them.

    Private or public the cloud is one of the best scalable cost effective solutions for businesses. There is the drawback that some cloud plans do not have the option and you have to use your own name servers. It can go either way depending on the service. I always recommend a quick sales call before you order to iron out any details that might concern you. Look for onApp as the control panel for your cloud web hosting. It really is a nice control panel that can help you with what you need for your cloud setup and operation.
