  1. Show SSL across the server in one place

    Can we have an information window for the sever showing which applications have an SSL certificate enabled and which don't (expired) ...

    We have had issues with auto renewal not working and without going to each application in turn, it is impossible to see at a glance which renewals have failed

  4. Add 'use lower case for domain address' to avoid issues with SSL installation

    This will avoid any issue with installing SSL certificates when the domain name is in uppercase anywhere in the console.

  5. Option to password protect application

    Hey, I can't believe I have to say it but this is kind of a basic feature of any hosting solution. This is a small but extremely essential feature so please add it to the console. We should be able to password protect an application on live and staging sites.

  7. Granular Management of Applications and Add-Ons Accessibility per user/team member.

    It would be really helpful if we can manage granular Application and Addon-on Access for each Application team member.

    Example #1
    I want my client to be able to get a Rackspace/Elastic Mail email account by themselves and the Add-on and the charge for the Add-on to be shown on my monthly bill.

    Example 2
    I want to be able to manage client's (team member's) access ONLY to certain features on "Application Settings" and hide others. Because I don't want them to be playing with PHP FPM Settings for example.

  8. Find applications by domain name

    Currently it is difficult to find application associated with a domain name, specially if you are hosting a lot of applications and if each application has multiple domain names. You have visit domain management screen of each application to figure out which application is associated with which domain.

    It would be nice to search/filter the applications by the domain name.

  9. Allow Team Members to create notifications on Cloudways Bot

    As a developer and affiliate, we run lots of client sites / servers. It would be great if we could create cloudways bot notifications with our accounts.

    It seems silly for only the master account to be able to do this. Especially, when a lot of clients (main account holders) are non-techies.

  10. Give us the ability to REQUEST a team member role in another account

    The ability to add a team member to an account is great, but it would be even better if we could request access to another account.

    That way, I wouldn't have to send my clients instructions on how to add me as a team member. Instead, I could just request access to their account, then they can approve or deny the request by clicking an email link, much in the same way the server migration between accounts works.

    GoDaddy has this in place with their 'delegated access' feature, I'd love to see Cloudways implement the same. It's a big time…

  12. A new option to download all backups at once

    In order to keep the backups in my machine, I need to browse all applications and dowload the backup.tgz from there, one by one. But, what if I have many applications at the same server? Also, the folders name don't identify each application easily, so, it is a pain to download and rename each one.

    It would be great a button like "Download all your local backups".

    Thank you.

  13. Add search function when selecting server to clone app

    When I click clone app, I have to scroll through a small window to find the server that I want to select. It would be much easier if there was a search feature here. Because I have a lot of servers

  14. HDPI graphics in the dashboard

    Small request, but please can you support high-resolution images/icons/logos for Macs and other modern screens.

    Love the product, but the blurry elements all over the place don't do it justice!

  16. Fix Database Manager GUI - Broken Pagination

    In the Database Manager, when displaying data from a table, a "pages" element shows up on the bottom left of the screen. This allows you to navigate through the pages of selected data. However, the z-index of this element is not set, which means it shows up underneath the "menu" element on the left side, effectively making it unusable. It's a small CSS fix that would fix this.

    Here's a screenshot to show you what I'm talking about.

  19. Console - Analytics - Traffic. Make the Url's clickable/copyable

    Quite simply, when viewing a long url in the Console Analytics it is not possible to copy or load the URL in question.

    see the example below

  20. Prenotification of scheduled maintenance

    When the server provider has scheduled maintenance planned, Cloudways should notify server admin (via cloudways bot & email?) that scheduled maintenance is planned, including timescales and servers affected.

    it is much more professional for us to let our clients know that downtime is likely rather than our clients to contact us complaining of application downtime.
