  1. Client subscriptions

    As we have clients websites on our server we need some way to make sure that they do not use more space etc. than what their subscription offers. Would you consider offering that option?

  2. Resource Boost

    It would be nice to be able to boost performance briefly by purchasing some temporary resources and then to be able to go back down, during development

  3. Verification information should be made more clear...

    Guys, this verification thing is not made clear enough on your website. (Yes I saw the small notification messages and information, still I somehow waited for some email, from prior hosting account experiences: "your hosting is ready, is being prepared, and so and so.") Maybe you should still send an email regarding this.

    Because "if you don't open this chatbox YOUR ACCOUNT WILL NOT BE VERIFIED and YOU WILL RECEIVE NOTHING FROM US" should be made clear enough.

    Thanks otherwise, probably great service, not yet entered :)
    Cheers

  4. The possibility of adding more than one database per application, and even by subdomain.

    Ex:

    domain.com.br - > 1 database
    subdomain.domain.com.br -> 2 database

    all in the same app

  7. DBaaS (MariaDB and MySQL)

    Offer Database as a Service. This will greatly help us offload server load and be able to scale easily without the fear of data corruption. DBaaS will improve web server performance. Maybe this can be integrated.

  9. Add ability to zoom inside Monitoring graphs

    Since we can't have access to the server logs, it would be great to be able to zoom into the broader monitoring graphs to get a better idea of the server's performance.

    For example if I'm looking at CPU usage for a Month, it is averaged, so I don't really see the actual numbers. Granularity gets lost ... It would be very useful to be able to zoom into the first week/day/hour of the month, since the logs for this are already there.

  11. Collect managed migration information via an SSL web form.

    The information required for a managed migration being submitted via a plain text email is sub-optimal. Using a web form on the cloudways site would allow the information to be collected and encrypted in transit.

  12. Queue for API tasks (API multitasks)

    Currently if I need to:


    1. Clone

    2. Set label

    3. Set Domain

    4. Set Aliases

    5. Set SSL

    6. Set something else...

    for the same application, I have to control the queue remotely, which is hard to implement since the connection may be simply lost and as a result we may simply not get any task completed at all.

    It would be just great if we could send you several requests on the API at the same time and see the result of the whole queue.

    /clone -> response with future appid
    /label for app
    id -> ok (200)
    /domain for appid ->

  14. Have the ability to change ownership of server to another cloudways account

    It would be great if we can just change ownership of a server. For example, my account. I am using my company Google account to handle our servers, etc on cloudways but maybe it needs to be owned by a generic company account in the event there is employee turnover or I leave the company. Then there would be no way to fully access the servers under my account that the company may need to access if, my account is ever removed.

  15. Improved monitoring and alerts

    The cloudways bot hasn't detected the two times that I've had issues on my server. A few days ago CPU was high and maxing out, sites were not loading and I had to notice this while on the site and open a chat to get it resolved. A couple weeks ago, the entire server was down from 3am to 10am - everything had completely locked up, no warning email.

    In addition, I don't think you can call yourselves "Managed" if you don't get the alerts on your end and check the servers. If I have to log in to see…

  16. Knowledge Base for Advanced Cron-Jobs

    Knowledge Base about Advanced Cron-Jobs wit better description about the possibilities of Advanced Cron-Jobs:


    • do output with cron-script.php >> cron-script-output.txt

    • different possible to execute like for php «31 04 * * * php pathToPhpScript/....»

    • what is the base-path for cron-scripts, or do I have to use always absolute-path

    • examples like (abstract):
      DD HH DD MM dOfWeek interpreter [absPathToScript] >> [absPathToOutputFile]

    • examples like real (pseudoreal)
      31 04 * * * php /home/121954.cloudwaysapps.com/txsjrjwqax/publichtml/cron-script-1.php >> /home/121954.cloudwaysapps.com/txsjrjwqax/publichtml/output-cron-script-1.txt

  17. possibility to change permission

    It is hard to work with cloudways limited umask for new files and folders
    drwxr-xr-x
    the «read and execute only» for group www-data prevent extremely easy handling of own scripts.
    It should be possible to change the limited permission at least with ssh command line chmod() or php's chmod().

    Only then will it be possible to work efficiently and smoothly.

  18. Enable playbooks from ansible for Cloudways-Server

    With playbooks a lot of manually daly-works can do by one (1) click.
    This simplifies everyday life:
    - Prevents errors
    - Makes most complex work child's play
    - Every customer can use an infinite number of possibilities
    - Every customer can reuse tons of created playbook from library
    - clone from local to remote
    - create-file
    - change value with preg_replace
    - use variable in sequenced-daly-jobs
    - ...

  20. Share benchmarks to know which is the best service that fits our projects

    I have read many reviews with different benchmarks, but for new people like me, it would be nice to have some documentation to know which server and which plan fits our project, based on the number of pageviews, CMS, etc.
