  1. Ability to add Custom Hostname for each of the servers

    Ability to add Custom Hostname for each of the servers. I love this platform but websites that I host, I don't have access to domains and adding A record is a headache. If there was a way to add a hostname for each server would cut down on changing clients to do changes themselves.

  7. Enable snapshots for DigitalOcean servers

    DigitalOcean has the ability to take snapshots of a droplet built into their service. However the snapshots add-on is not currently available in Cloudways.

    I huge benefit of DigitalOcean is being able to take snapshots and restore a server quickly. Backups take a long time to restore - while snapshots are much faster.

  9. Provide EU location for Rackspace emails

    It would be great if you could specify where the emails servers were located for the Rackspace add on.

    Currently I believe they store all their email accounts in Virginia, but maybe some pressure from one of their big resellers to also provide a location in EU would be beneficial.

    Some organisations would need to have their emails stored within the EU and not on US servers.

    Hi Paul,

    Understand your problem but don’t think we are big enough to put the kind of pressure needed for this. Currently they only offer mailboxes in US and, for what we know, have no plans to support mailboxes in EU.

    In any case, we have raised this already with our Rackspace manager and will add the feature as soon as they have it available.

  14. Include Object Cache Pro subscription as premium addon

    Include Object Cache Pro subscription as premium add on for a small fee - they charge $90 per month but have an agency option and have worked with other hosting companies like Pagely to offer this to their clients I believe for free as part of their hosting fee - however I would be happy to pay a small fee as it seems to double Redis object cache performance which would be great!!!

  15. Add Rackspace Office 365 Plans

    Rackspace offer Office 365 plans... since cloudways is a partner for email, would be awesome to extend this relationship to include the office 365 offers (preferably at a discount rate!).

  17. Add Ability To Add Rackspace Alias w/out Mailbox

    Currently you can only add aliases for mailboxes which requires you to pay $1/mo. per mailbox. On Rackspace directly, you can add aliases without a mailbox.

  18. Adding Tesseract-OCR

    I wish we could install Tesseract-OCR into our server so we can use it.
    https://github.com/tesseract-ocr/tesseract

    It will help us create more powerfull web application.

  20. You should let the users host their emails in the servers

    I'ts unbelievable First of all you don't let users open as many email address as they want so forcing us to pay an extra fee of $1 monthly per email address or look around another email provider for host the emails then when you pay the extra fee per email address you can't migrate your emails yourself because the company use a 3rd party service and you have no access to a control panel to manage your services with them because you sign up through cloudways so you are forced to pay a migration fee of $10 per email address…
