Frequently Asked Questions

An affiliate program is an agreement between a business and the affiliate where the business pays an affiliate a commission for sending traffic or sales their way. Through our affiliate program, Cloudways offer commissions for each qualified referral who signs up and upgrades through the affiliate link.

You can easily find your affiliate link at the top of the dashboard of your Affiliate Panel. If you need further assistance, please contact our affiliate support.

Anyone can join the Cloudways Affiliate Program. You will need to create an account with Cloudways and then register to “become an affiliate.” You can then fill your affiliate profile form from your Cloudways account.

Your affiliate commission is paid via PayPal once your monthly earnings reach $250 (approved commission). If you hit this threshold, your earnings will be transferred before the 10th of the month. For this, login to your Cloudways affiliate account and update the payout method to “Paypal” along with Paypal email address in the Affiliate Profile form. We also send payments via Wire Transfer (only available for accounts earning $1000 approved commission or more per payout cycle). To set up the Wire Transfer account, contact us via our 24/7 Live Chat or send an email to our Affiliate Support team.

For this, log in to your Cloudways affiliate account, go to Commission Structure drop-down menu (available in the affiliate profile form) and select your desired structure. Once done, click the update button to save the changes. Note that these changes will be applicable from the start of the following month.

The signup transaction is approved when the referred customer has upgraded the account to full by authorizing his billing details and paid at least two full invoices. If the referred customer is on trial and has not upgraded the account, you will receive no commissions for that referral.

The Reports tab in the Affiliate Panel will give you a comprehensive overview of your sales and earnings. Go to Reports, then click on “Quick Stats.” You will see the Number of Sales mentioned within.In case you have referred someone through your affiliate link and cannot find them in your affiliate panel, just email us appropriate evidence (along with the email address the referral used for sign-up) that our affiliate management team can evaluate. Once they give the go-ahead, the referral will be reflected in your affiliate panel.

Yes, you can add the affiliate earnings to your Cloudways funds. For this, login to your Cloudways affiliate account and update the payment method to “Funds Transfer” in the Affiliate Profile form. Please note that the minimum threshold for funds transfer is $100 approved commission. This is processed along with payouts.

All slabs are reset on the 1st of each month. For instance, if you reach slab 3 by the end of the first month, the slab will automatically reset to slab 1 on the 1st of the second month.

You can contact us via our 24/7 Live Chat or send an email to our Affiliate Support team at

We do allow our Affiliates to run PPC Campaigns with a few restrictions. All affiliates have to include “Cloudways” in their negative keyword list and ensure they don’t bid directly on our Brand keywords, also known as TM (Trademark) Bidding. You cannot bid on keywords and phrases containing the “Cloudways” trademark, or variations or misspellings of the trademarked term on Pay per Click or Pay per Impression campaigns on the search engines (Google, Yahoo, MSN, Ask, Bing, or others) without our prior approval. You are not allowed to use the Cloudways Website(s) as a display URL in PPC ads and to direct-link or redirect to the Cloudways website(s) without our prior approval.
