  1. Allow non-Wordpress applications to have same webp bypass for nginx

    I have seen the request titled "UI for Excluding Images from Nginx vhost to Support webp .htaccess redirect rules", and my problem is that this feature is not showing up in my application settings because my application is custom PHP.

    Reference:
    https://cloudways.uservoice.com/forums/203824-service-improvement/suggestions/42123154-ui-for-excluding-images-from-nginx-vhost-to-suppor

    Every time nginx is updated, I have to contact Cloudways support and have them redo the modification to nginx. This wastes their time, my time, and I never know when this happens, so the application efficiency is reduced until I am made aware of the problem.

    The Cloudways support agent gave me this photo, so you are clear…

  2. Application Level FAQ

    For things like WooCommerce, you should have an FAQ on common troubleshooting steps like "Removing All Products" "Best Practices for a clean WooCommerce Database" etc.

  4. add password protection to main applications, not just staging.

    This really should be standard. Password protection plugins are unreliable, even with exceptions for their cookies. Then the htaccess method of password protection has proven to be a major hassle, and in my case, continues to give me internal server errors. My workaround was to create staging applications for any dev sites and completely disable the main application. However, this should be totally unnecessary. Given we sometimes have to develop a site on the default Cloudways URL because the live site is elsewhere, this password protection thing should really be a basic feature.

  5. SSL should follow the Domain, not the App

    Problem: Currently, a Let's Encrypt SSL is tied to a single CloudWays App, so there are delays in dropping and re-applying for an SSL when bringing an App into production on another domain.

    CW Tech Support could not suggest a smoother way to bring an App into production, which makes CW a bad option for active sites. I'm inclined to run my own server where I can atomically move a symlink to go live or various other ways of smoothly transitioning from dev to production.

    Solution: SSLs should be tied to their corresponding Domains, not a single App. This would:

  10. Add identifiable text in application URL.

    Adding characters from the application name into the URL will help tremendously for editing - Staging editors would be able to easily identify which site/window is open when editing multiple sites at the same time.

  11. Applications List View: Enable Pagination Setting of X Items per Page

    The current application list view default to 10 applications per page:
    -> It is NOT possible to change the number of items per page.

    Suggest to enable pagination setting for number of items per page. This is a simple UI adjustment, but very useful for daily application management.

  14. Add Cloudron

    Please add Cloudron. It will make it easy for users to install dozens of apps like Nextcloud, Discourse, Kopano Meet, Matomo, Matrix, Moodle, PeerTube, Rocket.Chat, Taiga, Bitwarden and Jitsi toon hopefully from the next major release!

    Linode already has a one-click app so at least provide it on Linode servers. Thanks.

  15. Create custom URL for new Cloudways apps - without subdomains

    For example...
    we could change: wordpress-565604-2320235.cloudwaysapps.com
    to: easyname.cloudwaysapps.com

    This is a common feature on WPengine. Screenshot: https://imgur.com/a/hqEZfVj

    Currently, the only way to do this on cloudways is to make a subdomain. However this...
    1. Makes launch more complicated because you have to migrate to a new app before pointing domain.
    2. Bloats the primary domain.

  17. Separate manual backups from automatic (persistent) + ability to rename

    Hi,

    You should implement backups the same way some of the best web hosting providers do:

    1) Separate manual backups from the automated ones.
    1.1) Manual backups should be "persistents" so they don't just disappear as the automated backups go on. Hence, the separate list only containing manual backups.

    To avoid abuses, you can limit to 5 or even 3 maximum "spots" of manual backups at the same time. That way, we are forced to delete some to make further manual backups, so that we never exceed the limit of manual backups spots.

      1.2) You could, as well, allow us

  18. storage

    Storage control.

    As a company, we want to provide tiered hosting for our customers.

    Ideally, we'd like to offer a standard package with up to "1gb" space, and then a premium package with up to e.g "5gb/unlimited" amount of space.

    Is this something that could be easily implemented?

  20. Add Jitsi Meet

    Can you please add Jitsi Meet. I'm currently using Linode for this and would like a simpler way or install and manage this with less maintenance so I can focus on other jobs. I know Cloudways would be more expensive but it would be worth if it was managed and as hassle free as possible.
