MODX Cloud is fantastic and well worth the reasonable cost—I've tried other cloud services, but this requires no server administration or knowledge of virtual machines. Not having to struggle with installing all the components on a server myself has freed me up to focus on the code and design of my website.

Collaborate and iterate with website superpowers

When collaboration is seamless, you can crush it online. MODX-exclusive Backstage™ selective content staging and Snapshots let you do things that were virtually impossible before. Auto-deploy SSH keys to your sites. Securely work with digital agencies or freelancers. Isolate projects with Groups and quickly seed projects to your customers’ accounts.

Most of our clients’ live streaming websites use a similar format. Starting from Snapshots saves so much time! I'm really impressed with the product and most importantly the support.

Performance, protection & best-practices baked in

It’s like having a fulltime sysadmin without the fulltime payroll. Our fully managed, always upgraded servers and one-click WAF or Security+ managed maintenance option keep your sites safe. Choose Uptime+ failover or high availability hosting for maximum uptime no matter what.

The servers are set up perfectly for MODX, the speed is super, and the MODX team is very responsive at fixing any issues that may crop up. Plus, it’s so easy to create new sites from old ones using Snapshots.

Unparalleled support

We measure success by how happy you are, not how fast we close tickets, and that extends to help with your CMS. Our proactive monitoring and upgrade service includes a no-hack warranty. And for those that prefer seamless priority support, we offer shared Slack channels, too.

MODX support always goes over and above the expected whenever I need help. Probably the best support I have come across in my 25-year IT career.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I move my website to MODX Cloud?

We want to make moving to MODX Cloud as easy as possible. We will move your first site to MODX Cloud for free. If you have additional websites to move, we can move those for a nominal fee.

Of course, web developers are welcome to migrate sites using their typical tools such as SFTP or SSH.

What is your uptime guarantee?

MODX Cloud has a Service Level Agreement standard of 99.99% uptime, excluding scheduled maintenance and upgrades. Our uptime statistics always exceed those.

If your organization can't afford your website to ever be down—including scheduled maintenance or brief restarts, ask us about Uptime+, Failover or our High Availability configurations.

Will you provide site support?

MODX Cloud offers a lot of tools to make managing your site easy. We also understand issues can come up that are outside your capabilities. When you log in to your MODX Cloud dashboard you are a support ticket away from getting in touch with experienced MODX team member.

You can learn more about what is included in our standard and priority support options on our Service Level Agreement page.

Can I only host MODX CMS sites?

MODX Cloud is designed to get the most from any PHP application, including WordPress and Laravel. In fact, we’ve migrated lots of WP sites to MODX Cloud and customers were shocked how much better they work on our servers.

Are there any bandwidth limits?

Production websites have a soft limit of 25,000 vists per month—a visit being a single user on an IP per day. If you have high traffic sites we will work with you to come up with a solution to address excessive overages. There are no limits for sites on Private Servers.

Do you have site backups?

Do we ever. MODX Cloud offers nightly, configurable backups—between one and thirty days (defaults to seven).

What’s more, can restore your site from a backup, at any time, with no need to contact support.

Where will my site be hosted?

MODX Cloud lets you choose from one of six public locations of Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London, Sydney (Australia), Washington DC, or Texas for each site you host in MODX Cloud.

We also offer private servers in 18 IBM Cloud data center locations.

Is MODX Cloud GDPR compliant?

We have EU data center locations (see above) and a SCC and DPA to satisfy GDPR requirements for our EU customers.

Can you help me fix my website?

Our MODX Cloud support is made up of experienced web professionals and skilled support agents. We can help resolve most small issues quickly. For larger projects, we can provide estimates or refer you to a MODX Professional.

How many sites can I host in my account?

You can host as many sites in your MODX Cloud account as will fit within the available storage on your Plan or any Extra Storage.

Each additional website that will have a domain name pointed will be $5/month on the Pro Plan and higher. Websites used for staging or development are no extra charge.

What is Vault Storage?

Vault storage is used for compressed Snapshots and Backups. A backup of a site in the Vault should be substantially smaller than what is on disk. Local disk storage for your site does not count towards Vault usage.
