SafeUpdates, which is being launched in beta, is Cloudways’ newest feature and will enable agencies and developers to update their WordPress websites both automatically and on demand.

Cloudways has worked closely with Cloudflare, OceanWP, Divi, and OCP among others to offer a seamless, no-code digital experience for agencies and developers to build and secure WordPress websites.

“Cloudways is both growing as a company and building significant momentum in the cloud hosting industry,” said Aaqib Gadit, Co-Founder and CEO of Cloudways. “The recent addition of Suhaib, Tom, and Paul to our leadership team shows the growth plans and ambition we have for Cloudways.
