Top 5 Awaited Elementor Cloud Features

Blair Jersyer Blog / Magazine Jun 18, 2022

Elementor Cloud is out for a moment now. Globally, we've seen a service that provides something few companies offer out there: A hosting solution with fewer headaches.

Indeed, Elementor Cloud offers you a hosting service that includes WordPress, Elementor, and Elementor Pro for just $99 per year.

So far the service is great, but at codewatchers.com we're seeking what is close to perfection. That's why here we'll share what are the best 5 features we believe should be added with time on Elementor Cloud, to attract more than beginners who need a simple hosting solution.

Let's jump right into it.

File Management

That's one of the biggest concerns I've faced with Elementor Cloud. Many times I wanted to create a website locally with Elementor and upload it, but that wasn't possible as Elementor Cloud doesn't include any file manager. While it's true I've shared some tips on how to upload file, which still requires you to go through the WordPress dashboard which is not appropriate if the website is unavailable.

We understand having a file manager might raise important security concerns, but with correct file restrictions, that can quickly be fixed. So file management is something we believe will be useful for every Elementor Cloud user.

Cache Plugin Support

While Elementor Cloud allows you to install third-party plugins, some plugins are excluded. Among those plugins, you can count cache plugins. Cache plugin helps make a website faster by "caching" most visited pages to avoid the server having, for every request, to render those pages.

This is really important, as the speed test we add on Elementor Cloud, while it's acceptable, could be better with cache plugins.

Multisite Network Support

Yes, we've tried to add Elementor Multisite, but we failed miserably. We've then tried to get in touch with the Elementor Cloud team to realize that this is a feature that is not yet supported. This means unfortunately, we cannot create a multi-blog or multi-store with Elementor Cloud.

We understand adding that feature will increase the load over the server. We believe with correct pricing, more users will be okay paying an extra to have a better server for that feature.

Plans For Scaling The Server

When you purchase an Elementor Cloud website, you have 20GB of storage, 100K monthly visits, and 100Gb of bandwidth. This might be enough for most needs, but not for all. Indeed every website's needs are different if we have to consider the type of the website. For example, an eCommerce website doesn't have the same needs as a regular blog. If we can be able to create any type of website with Elementor, we should be able to scale our server (or have the choice regarding the available plans).

Special Pricing For Agency

Elementor Cloud is a great service. Chances are agencies will frequently use the service to host their customer's websites.

If we have to consider the price spend per website, someone who purchases 25 Elementor Cloud websites is spending $2475/year. It will be more profitable for an agency to purchase a server that cost $72 for $864 yearly with the Expert Plan that gives 25 website activation for $199. The total expenditure will cost $1063 yearly. That's a huge saving.

Better pricing plans will be profitable for Elementor and the users.

Summary

By the end of this tutorial, we can say that while Elementor Cloud is currently the best solution for hosting (peacefully) a WordPress website with Elementor and Elementor Pro, it remains that this product can be better with the features we've listed above, especially the file manager.
