  1. Elastic Email params and credentials in Server SMTP section

    Getting Elastic Email SMTP params and credential in smtp section of the server interface when Elastic Email is selected.

  2. Monit as New Relic alternative

    New Relic reach EOL but application monitoring is still important. Maybe MONIT daemon should be a good alternative...

  3. Add ClouDNS domain management

    Specifically free DNS zone management, which has an HTTP API available for easier integration. It's really annoying for some ccTLD (like .com.ar) which doesn't offer it by default.

  4. Cloudways Rackspace webmail needs to be SSL / HTTPS

    When an email account is setup using Cloudways/Rackspace, the webmail url provided in the login details is non SSL. This causes a problem that the end client now gets security warnings which makes my service look unprofessional.

    When I spoke to support, they suggested a different (secure) url. I suggest at the very least the set up email sent by cloudways with login details has either the generic https rackspace url or to set up the vanity subdomain url to be https as well

  7. DNS Made Easy - failover records

    I am pleased to see that Cloudways offer a "DNS Made Easy" add-on.

    However, unfortunately it doesn't include the DNS Failover feature (https://dnsmadeeasy.com/services/dnsfailover/) which is a real shame as that would be an incredibly useful feature.

    Cloudways Support clarified that the features provided by the add-on are equivalent to the "Small Business" option that DNS Made Easy offer directly (https://dnsmadeeasy.com/pricing/) rather than the "Business" option.

    Please could you consider making the DNS Failover feature available.

  8. Allow to add additional IP address

    Here is the idea, let say I have 2 websites that have different location of target visitors, for e.g: Website A is intended for visitors from South East Asia, and Website B intended for visitors from Central America, as you know there are timezone different approx 12 hours..

    Note: Both websites has a quite huge visitors >5,000/day. And let say I have server DO with 2 GB RAM already that cost $34/month. Rather than buy another server 2 GB RAM, I would prefer to buy additional IP address that might cost me $2/month. and I would not bother with the…

  9. add elastic email usage graph to monitoring

    I just had a problem with elastic email and I'n not able to see quota usage, logs, queues or anything. Would be a very nice addition and could offload support at the same time.

  12. Free Email or at least Email Forwarding

    Not all clients need or want email accounts, especially Rackspace which costs more. We need a "free" alternative like most hosts provide.

    Just to be able to forward emails without having to use the domain registrar would be very helpful.

    For example a client who pays me the absolute minimum for his one page promotion site won't want to pay for Rackspace email, he just needs a basic email or forwarder to fire emails over to his gmail or work email.

  16. Direct Access to DNS Integration

    Having direct access to the DNS add-on would have made things a lot easier. There are many different DNS setups that make it difficult to know exactly what is needed to add and or remove things. And via ticketing​ service makes it really difficult and confusing.

  17. add support for other app monitoring tools (datadog / appdynamics)

    Currently you only offer New Relic for app monitoring, there are today better/cheaper tools like datadog or appdynamics.

    I think you should provide more alternatives and not forcing users to use new relic.

  19. Allow Agency Like Functionality - Client Pay

    Hi,

    I really like how pantheon allows you to send clients a link to pay for their server directly from your agency account. If you all could add this functionality that would be amazing. That way we could manage all our clients accounts/servers under one interface. It would also be really great to have a sandbox account with aws or something for dev sites with a free tier or something like that to put website templates in their and use while building out the site. Thank you!
