Divi has made it easier for WordPress users to create professional websites without coding thanks to its visual page builder. With Divi Cloud, the process of website creation will be even easier. Especially if you are an agency or freelance developer creating websites for clients.
What is Divi Cloud?
First thing first, Divi Cloud is not a hosting service. Elegant Themes already offers hosting service — called Divi Hosting — partnered with some well-known hosting providers. Instead, Divi Cloud is a cloud storage service designed specifically to store your Divi assets. From sections, modules, theme builder templates, to code snippets. Elegant Themes introduced Divi Cloud along with the release of Divi 4.17 in June 2022.
Divi Cloud is released as a freemium service. Every Elegant Themes subscriber — be it old or new — is given the storage quota of 50 items. To store more than 50 items, you need to pay $8 per month (or $6 for yearly payment option).
How Divi Cloud Works
As the name suggests, Divi Cloud works by storing your Divi assets to the cloud. Since the assets are stored in the cloud, you can access them from anywhere — be it on the same website or different websites. All you need is to login with the same Elegant Themes account wherever you want to access your assets.
In other words, you can access a certain Divi asset (section, module, etc.) you have customized on a certain website — from another website. With this approach, you can get a website project done more quickly as you don’t need to manually search for JSON files or code snippets on your computer.
Divi Cloud comes with a great assets manager. It automatically generates a screenshot for every item you add, make it easy for you to identify when needed. Also, you can create categories and add tags for a better assets management.
What’s You Can Store to Divi Cloud
A Divi-powered page consists of three main element types as follow:
You can store the above element types to Divi Cloud. In addition, you can also store a full page (page layout), theme builder templates, and other assets.
At the time of writing (January 2023), Divi Cloud allows you to store the following assets:
- Page layouts
- Theme builder templates
- Code snippets
Soon, you can also add other asset types such as theme customizer settings, module presets, theme option settings, 3rd-party integrations, Divi Builder settings, fonts and colors, plugins, and child themes.
A little note. On the assets manager window, you can only see the assets according to their respective context. For instance, when you want to add a module, you can only see the modules on the manager window. So is with rows. You can only see the rows when you want to add a row. And so on, and so forth.
How to Use Divi Cloud?
As mentioned earlier above, Divi Cloud was introduced along with the release of Divi 4.17. So, to use it, you need to update your Divi theme to the newest version.
To start using Divi Cloud, first, edit your page with Divi Builder and add a new element (section, row, or module). Click the Add From Library tab to open the library/assets manager window.
Once the assets manager window shows up, you can click the Sign In To Divi Cloud button on the upper-right corner. Simply login with your Elegant Themes account.
Once logged in, you can start adding new assets to Divi Cloud.
As said above, every Elegant Themes member can save up to 50 assets to Divi Cloud for free. To see how many assets you have added, you can login to the Elegant Themes website. Once logged in, click the CLOUD tab. As you can see, you will be presented with the number of assets you have added to Divi Cloud.
— Adding an Asset to the Cloud
To add a new asset to the cloud, first, you can edit an element just like usual. For instance, to add a row to the cloud, you can add and edit a row on the current page you are editing (you can also add some modules to the row). Once done editing the row and the elements inside it (columns and modules), you can click the down arrow icon on the row settings bar. Give the asset a name and toggle the Save To Divi Cloud option on. Click the Save To Divi Cloud button. Before clicking the button, you can select a category and add a tag.

## Adding a Code Snippet to the Cloud
If you often use custom CSS, you can utilize Divi Cloud to store your code snippets and access them via any website. Interestingly, you can select a certain code part only to be stored.
