Infrastructure Support

In case of issues related to any of our infrastructure partners (including but not limited to servers not starting, servers not launching and servers not scaling), we will use our best efforts to coordinate with the provider until a resolution has been achieved.

Platform Features

We fully support any request related to the Cloudways Platform including but not limited to:

  • Adding servers/applications
  • Cloning servers/applications
  • Server scaling
  • Mapping domains
  • Backups
  • SFTP/SSH connection issues

For all our customers, we additionally support the following extra application related services:

  • Migration of your site to Cloudways (managed migration)
  • Issues about installing/configuring Breeze WordPress plugin
  • Issues about installing/configuring Amasty Magento plugin
  • Problems with Let’s Encrypt certificates
  • Issues about setup/configuring CloudwaysCDN


An important element of the Advanced and Premium support levels is the ability to customize your server (deploy additional PHP packages, Nginx/Varnish specific configurations). You can ask Cloudways to make specific configuration changes to your server that will follow it through the different platform processes (including but not limited to clone, restore, transfer).

Application Support

Application Support is another important element of Advanced and Premium support levels, which mainly includes help/collaboration with application level issues, such as:

  • Troubleshooting of plugins and themes
  • Investigation of server error messages
