Allow CW Signup with any email address (not only Gmail)
Currently, it's only possible to create a new account with either a Gmail address or a branded email address.
I strongly encourage you and suggest allowing any email addresses to create a Cloudways account.
Gmail → can't force a client to use Gmail
Branded email → if the branded email should be migrated to Cloudways (using Rackspace) then its not recommended to use this email address to manage the CW account itself.
Workaround: Change email address after account creation. But this can be only done once. And it's again an annoying process for a client who needs to do that and confirm it.

I'm trying to promote my business, I create different accounts, pages. I recently bought a marketing business email list.Email https://accfarm.com/email-list Very convenient and helped me save time on mailing to clients. Look if it can help you.
This "gmail-only" nonsense is absurd. Already lost a major referral client over this because it's so ridiculous.
Another element making it harder and harder to recommend Cloudways to clients.
And the supposed security reason for this is equally absurd. Given how trivial it is to create a Gmail address, it's a pretty customer-abusive requirement for so little security benefit.
