, the multi-cloud managed hosting platform and subsidiary of DigitalOcean (NYSE:DOCN), announces the launch of its Web Hosting Savings Calculator for small businesses. As companies prepare for the holiday online shopping blitz and look ahead to 2023, the new tool aims to help small businesses to calculate their expenditures, stay on top of their finances, and more easily evaluate the costs involved in embracing cloud hosting technology.

The Web Hosting Savings Calculator allows businesses to input details about their website and traffic and receive a comparison of hosting plans across a variety of companies.
Beginning November 14th, in advance of Black Friday/Cyber Monday, Cloudways is also helping small businesses cut costs at a crucial time by offering special pricing for their core web hosting products offering 40% off for 4 months and up to 30 free migrations.
