Important Notes

  • Canceling a Cloudways account is an irreversible action. Your account will not be reinstated once canceled.

  • Once your account is canceled, we will not be able to recover your websites’ data because of GDPR compliance.

  • If you decide to use Cloudways again after the account is canceled, you’ll need to signup with a new email address and go through the verification process one more time.

  • Please clear all your outstanding invoices before canceling your account. As Cloudways charges in arrears, you will receive one final invoice in the next month after canceling your account.

That’s it! We hope this article was helpful. If you need any help, then feel free to search your query on Cloudways Support Center or contact us via chat (Need a Hand > Send us a Message). Alternatively, you can also create a support ticket.
