My 6 Month Elementor Hosting Review (Elementor Cloud)

  • by

Quick summary: Elementor Cloud Website provides an end-to-end solution for website creators which pairs its renowned no-code builder with its new premium hosting service.

Last month Elementor finally launched it’s new offering called Elementor Cloud Website. This new service from Elementor allows you to get everything you need to build a website with a single purchase. Along the lines of signing up for Weebly or Wix, Elementor is now in the website builder service business. Elementor has offered a visual no-code plugin within WordPress for about 10 years now. But users still needed to sign up with a hosting provider. But now Elementor offers hosting, wordpress pre-installed, and the Elementor Pro web builder in a single package – Elementor Cloud Website.

Over 400 million websites have been created using WordPress (that’s over 30% of all sites). And with over 10 million active downloads, today over 7.1% of the world’s top 10 million websites are powered by Elementor. This is a force to be reckoned with, and web designers are aware of it. Web designers and developers demand an open-source ecosystem, with a secure and high-performing hosting service, where they can build websites freely. Elementor Cloud Website is exactly that. With secure built-in hosting,  Elementor Cloud Website empowers web creators to focus on what matters — creating their perfect website.

Setting Up Elementor Cloud Website

When you first setup your Elementor Cloud site, you will be asked to enter a name for your website. You can change this later. Just enter anything for now to get started.

The domain of your site will be created based on the name you just gave it. If you already have a domain name reserved, you can link it to your site later.

Once your Cloud site is setup, the admin area looks the same as any other site with Elementor. Just drag the blocks you want to include onto your page and then edit.

The WordPress dashboard of your Elementor Cloud site looks the same as any other WordPress site. You still can include any plugin and theme, edit users and settings, etc.

After your site is created, the fastest way to create a fantastic looking site is to use one of Elementor’s themes in their kit library. Just apply their kit, then edit the details to make it your own.

That’s it. Now you have a professional looking website without paying a professional price.

Does Elementor Cloud Include Email?

Yes. The subscription includes up to 100 emails per day sent from your website. This includes form submission emails, purchase confirmation emails, admin notifications etc.

Elementor Cloud Pricing

This new service from Elementor (hosting + wordpress + Elementor Pro) costs $99 per year. For a single website the Elementor Pro plugin by itself costs $49 per year. So basically the cost of the hosting part of this package is $50 per year. The high quality web hosting provided by Elementor, if you were to go and buy it separately, would be at least twice that much. So if you’re wondering if Elementor Cloud is worth the cost, I would say yes it is. Even if you signup up with Weebly (the package most comparable), the cost would be $144 per year (Wix is even more expensive). And the huge advantage offered by Elementor Cloud is that the whole world of WordPress plugins is available to you.

Is There a Free Trial of Elementor Cloud

No. Elementor Cloud has no trial period, but they do offer a 30-day money back guarantee with no strings attached.

This Is the World of WordPress Tomorrow

Elementor is unique as it began during the trailblazing plugin era, whereas other page and website builders started as sheltered hosting providers. It has the mindset, culture, and organizational structure to transform from a product company into a cloud company. From a plugin to a product to a platform.

Elementor Cloud Website is set to revolutionize how WordPress website projects are organized.  By streamlining their workflow, removing technical setup barriers, simplifying hand-off to clients, and, of course, publishing. Elementor now offers Web Creators a solution that lets them focus on what they do best: Create websites and design their future.
