Here at Cloudways, you can sign up for a free trial of three days without a credit card and experience the best hosting platform, which offers countless features to make sure that nothing stops you from achieving your goals, and you stay focused on your business growth. In the trial period, you can launch a server, deploy an application, and migrate your site to check all the functionalities and see if everything is working fine. Later, you can upgrade to a Full Account to unlock the full potential of the Cloudways Platform.

To upgrade to a Full Account, you need to have a valid credit card for verification purposes and future billing. A small charge of $1 is charged for verification purposes by the payment processor and is automatically reversed once the attempt is successful.
