One-click staging and cloning tools for unlimited websites

Staging environments are a must-have if you run a website business or need a staging environment for testing out new website designs. They allow you to test new designs and features without interfering with your live website.

With a staging environment, you can clone your existing website onto a new one, test out new features in a sandboxed environment, and switch back to your original website when you’re done.

Cloudways gives you this flexibility with their one-click staging feature.

Automatic backups

You needn’t worry about losing your website content or data if something goes wrong with your website. Cloudways offers daily, weekly, and monthly backups of your website. You can restore your website on the same or different server anytime. You can also download your website backups at any time.

To get SSL for free, you must sign up for Cloudways and select the hosting plan you want to use. After choosing your hosting plan, you will be given the option to decide between a free and paid SSL certificate.

Select the free SSL certificate options, and you’re all set.
