In this guide, you will learn about the Cloudways Referral Program and how you can benefit from it. On the other hand, Cloudways also offers Cloudways Affiliate Program to earn commissions.


You must have a Cloudways Account to join this referral program, so if you do not have one, quickly sign up on Cloudways.

Earning Hosting Credits — Deep Dive

Cloudways provides you complete freedom of gaining referrals through any medium you like and referring as many users as possible. Initially, you may start with your friends and family to rescue them from old-fashioned hosting and earn hosting credits.

Your every referral will get a $25 free hosting credit immediately (redeemable after account upgrade) once they sign up on Cloudways (provided they haven't signed up before) using your unique referral link. You will get $50 free hosting credit (standard offer) in return when your referred friend pays at least two invoices and reaches a total spending of $30 or more on Cloudays services.

Your earnings will be in hosting credit which you can spend only on Cloudways and save money on future invoices. The hosting credit can only be used for hosting plans and not any other service Cloudways offers.


If your referral cancels the account, then it will not count as a valid referral; hence, you will not be issued any hosting credits.

    The hosting credits are added to your Cloudways account after the user you referred generates a minimum of two invoices and a total spending of $30 or more.
