Cloudways uses an email address rather than a username to uniquely identify you as an account holder. When you first sign up with Cloudways, you are asked for an email address. The same email address is used for logging in to the Cloudways Platform and can be changed in your account settings.


If you have forgotten your login email address, we recommend you check all of your email inboxes, as you must have got emails from Cloudways. If you still find it difficult to retrieve your email, drop us an email at [email protected].

Change Your Account Email Address

Here is how you can change your Cloudways account email address in a few simple steps. We recommend using the up-to-date email to which you have access all the time. In addition, it helps us reach out to you with important information. Get to know more about some web hosting alternatives.

A Few Important Notes

Before changing your Cloudways account’s email address, there are few important things to consider, such as:

  • Only customers with a full account (not on trial) can change their email addresses.

  • The email address can only be changed once.

  • Ensure your new email address is not previously registered with Cloudways as a trial/full account user or team member.

  • Two Factor Authentication must be turned off temporarily before updating the email address. Once the email address is successfully updated, you can turn on Two Factor Authentication.
