  1. When trying to PUSH/PULL selected database tables from staging, list tables in single-column non-iframed list

    When choosing only selected database tables to PUSH or PULL from staging to live website it is VERY difficult to both read or find the tables because of you choice of layout. I'm numbering things so replies can reference each point.

    PROBLEMS

    1. Tables are listed in four columns
    2. Tables are inside a quite small iframe that forces us to scroll around 6 pages in length... it's like only being allowed to look through a peephole at large document.
    3. Table names are truncated with an ellipsis (...) if they don't fit in the width of the column and for me that's…

  2. Ability to nickname Team account instead of showing primary account holder's first name

    I would like the ability to give an account a nickname as a team member. When I have multiple accounts in my dropdown, they only show the primary account holder's first name. If you have two accounts in there with Mark as the first name, it's confusing.

  3. Accept Ed25519 keys on the Dashboard/Console

    Please, consider adapting the Dashboard to allow the adding of Ed25519 keys for SSH sessions.

    RSA, the cryptographic method currently in place for SSH sessions, is mathematically breakable, which is why long keys are necessary to keep security; nevertheless, there is always the possibility they could be cracked. Also, for long term protection, RSA keys should now, supposedly, contain at least 15360 bits; of course, this is unrealistic in a real environment, as it decreases performance and increases strain on the communication channels.

    I pledge for the usage of Ed25519, considering a mere 256 bit key is enough to guarantee…

  4. Resource limitation control per application (disk space, bandwidth limit, CPU cores)

    Adding limitations per application would be a great help so we can offer our clients a specific number on

    disk space
    bandwidth limit
    CPU cores
    and etc.

  5. Make it perfect

    Apologies, I am sure most or all of these have been suggested and I am suggesting a few at once here.

    • File manager

    • Ability to rename accounts. I am a developer and have 5 accounts and more soon that I am working on for different clients. In the drop down it shows their name, I should be able to rename it so I see the name of the client, not the name they signed up with which sometimes is not someone I know and am not sure which websites it is and need to click around to find the correct…

  6. Add Created Date to Single App Page

    Currently the created date only shows on the "Applications" page, which paginates apps in groups of 10. We've go over 150 apps, so when we need to find the created date we have to trawl through pages to find the correct app.

    So it would be super helpful to have the "Created Date" for an application within the details of a single app. As for where, maybe above/below the "Applications Management" title on the left hand side. Or below that menu? Or within one of the pages - e.g. Access Details.

    Should be super simple to add in wherever! Just…

  7. Under Staging Management- Speed up the process for "copy from Staging to Live". It is much too slow.

    It just needs to process all the data much faster than me dropping files into a directory. If I have one php file and I use this tool, it takes hours to update VS 1 minute for me to manually upload a new file. This feature is critical to our GIT environment.

  11. 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

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. HDPI graphics in the dashboard

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

  20. 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…
