Cloudways has always been a great proponent of transformations and improvements. Keeping up with the tradition, our cloud experts intend to present something remarkably useful, especially for developers, agencies, and SaaS vendors. With the objective to better the user experience and make the Platform more developer friendly, Cloudways has released its Public API to the Platform.

After continuous revisions and reviews, this API was put to the test on our staging environment. Our cloud experts were constantly working to fix the glitches and errors that occurred during the course. Finally, we are content with the stability of our API and have decided to release it for our customers. The current version of the API includes the documentation and a Playground, explained later on in the text.
