  1. Get VULTR HF engineers to solve scalability problem

    Particular to NJ location VULTR HF. When I purchased a 16 GIG VULTR HF, there were options for 32 and 48 available in NJ. But I cannot vertically scale without cloning and moving. I'm not able to vertically scale the VULTR HF. I understand these are VERY popular servers, with good reason, but as I expect my business to grow and traffic increase, it's not efficient to have multiple server when in just a few minutes I should be able to scale. I moved here from SIteground due to stability issues. I don't want to have to clone, or add…

  2. CDN for Staging Environment

    Why we can't have CDN URL for the staging environment?

    If you dont support CDN for the staging site how can I test the code & optimize speed before making it live?

    All leading managed WP hosting companies have CDN support for staging.

  3. Please add Windows Server Hosted option

    It would be nice to have an option to select Cloud Windows Servers. We have a need for that now but will have to look elsewhere. It is nice to keep it all with Cloudways if we had the option.

  4. Allow to define bash aliases for app user

    The master user can define bash aliases in .bash_aliases file, but an app user can't do the same, there is no way to define aliases and load them automatically on ssh login
    Would be great to be able to define such bash aliases file for app user!

  6. Add "Bot Protection" events to CloudwaysBot so we know if users are being blocked

    It would be great to be notified if Bot Protection is blocking users so that we can take action. Currently, I have to manually check and I am concerned as I myself was blocked a few times. Having an event added to your CloudwaysBot seams like an ideal solution for me as I currently have that integrated with a slack channel. Many thanks, Alex

  7. Enable Autoscaling for servers

    It would be great to implement an autoscaling feature that would automatically add additional resources to a server when certain thresholds are met related to RAM or CPU usage.

  8. Fix Database Manager GUI ( Enable table filtering and search fields )

    When you click on a database table, you're taken to the Select data tab, which is great. However, the header section is only displaying two fields, neither of which are labeled. All the actual labels and additional fields are missing. This means it's impossible to sort the data, filter, or search for advanced content.

    Here are two screenshots, one of what IS visible:
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/yyp2meohkaxlakk/What%20IS%20Visible.png
    and another of what SHOULD BE visible.
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/qaycu7qc3h5ux00/What%20SHOULD%20BE%20Visible.png
    Hope that helps explain what I'm talking about.

    Clearly, all the form fields are already there, but they're hidden. Looking at the CSS, it looks like there are…

  9. Make error reporting in SSL installation more verbose.

    I have dozens of domains added to my server, all with Let's encrypt certificates.

    Sometimes, I face an issue when I can't add a certificate for a new domain because one of the old ones has got its IP address misconfigured.

    Error reporting for these cases, as it is now, is not very descriptive, so I am forced to manually copy-paste all my domains (up to 100 of them) into a DNS lookup tool.

    The current error message in such cases look like this:
    Server 4: Please make sure that your domains are pointed correctly to your server IP

    Desired…

  10. Server Log

    While I was talking to support he mentioned cloudways only save log of 7 days. While doing log server analysis for SEO we need 30 days at least. Can you guys extend it?

  11. Add HSTS server setting

    Adding the HSTS setting manually is cumbersome. It would be a great addition to configure via the server admin console.

  13. Configure email generated from the server to allow it to go through

    The cpanel currently accepts configuration values for SMTP that get carried through to postfix (or whatever), but do not allow us to set a custom From: header. As a result, nearly every SMTP relay will reject the message.

    Workarounds include generating email from PHP (usually via PHPMailer) or on the command line using mail -r "from@example.com". However by default, without any workaround, email generated by the system (such as using the MAILTO= in a crontab) will simply fail.

    I've not encountered a server stack before that takes in SMTP configuration for the server but fails to take in…

  14. Ability to disable Off-site Backup

    1) Off-site backup is a paid service. Please allow us to disable it if we want to.

    2) What's your reasoning for rounding up backup charges on $0.5 increments?

  15. Better explanation: ATTACHING WARNING.

    The first waring says something about cloning the server.
    In a chat with support, they mentioned:
    "it is saying that once you increase that you can't revert that and you may need to clone your server if you wanna revert block storage"
    That explains the first warning more clear think.

    Kind regards,

    Niels de Vries

  17. Offer the option to create a new site as a "Staging" site

    Currently, new sites cannot be created with the development user/pass UI for adding a username and password to access the site. When you are developing a new site it is important to keep it from being crawled by search engines, so it needs to be behind password protection. right now the only way to accomplish this is to either edit the htaccess file or else install a maintenance plugin.

    Specifically, I wanted to create a Staging site from a site that is currently hosted on a server that has an older database. My development server has the latest versions of…

  20. Increase SFTP idle time or give user option to increase it

    If you check here - https://github.com/liximomo/vscode-sftp/issues/541

    many of us are facing issues with SFTP getting disconnected and not automatically connected again. This is very frustrating in development. Creating a ticket every time and asking to increase this is not convenient.
