  1. Please add FTP support

    SFTP is not available always. My clients need to be able to FTP the profile of a product/property via FTP as an XML file, for example.

  2. Auto-generating random WordPress database prefix to improve security

    At the moment, a database prefix in each new WordPress instalation is set "wp_". This is makes a website insecure.

    Could you auto-generate a random database prefix to fix that?

    Thank you.

  4. Support for Amazon Lightsail

    New as of 11/30/2016, Lightsail provides much more competitive rates than normal AWS. Comparable to the DigitalOcean or Vultr plans currently offered by Cloudways.

  5. Easy Google G Suite Integration (as SMTP gateway)

    Being able to easily integrate G Suite (Google Apps) would be great. We have all of our email setup through G Suite and it is a popular email service. Like the SMTP add-on, but for G Suite.

    This goes hand and hand with being able to access the DNS add-on directly.

    I don't mind paying extra, but the way things are setup is really confusing.

  6. MongoDB Please

    I already use digitalocean. We usually configure 2 servers per app one for php (with Nginx+ apc cache) and another one for Mongodb. Would be great to have cloudways with this configuration as the other tools you offer are great.

    Thanks

  7. Cloudflare DNS integration

    Integrate Cloudflare as a DNS server, when setting up a domain in the application, automatically include it through the api in the Cloudflare zone.
    If possible a small panel with zone settings, if not possible, only the shortcut of adding the domain with @ and cname already greatly improves the processes.

  9. Static HTML stack

    We'd quite like the ability to specify a HTML-only stack with PHP disabled and no database. While this might seem an odd request, we sometimes have the need for temporary holding sites, additional sub-sites, etc. It's potentially also of use with headless CMS sites. Having related sites on the same server / within the same interface is useful.

    While I realise we can use the PHP install for this, I'd prefer something that has code execution properly disabled from the start.

  10. 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.

  12. PTR records / Reverse DNS

    DNS is important, reverse DNS is also important within production web farms. Currently it is not possible to set the PTR record for IPs on the Digital Ocean (+other?) platforms. PTR record lookups return something along the lines of: 12345-67890.cloudwaysapps.com.

    Please add the ability for clients to modify this zone.

  14. Adding subdomains pointing to the existing directories in application or external site

    I was surprised to know that that you cannot add a subdomain and point to your existing directories. even pointing to other domains.This features was there in cpanel from beginning and it is quite useful. Especially this features helps to server make the site much more faster in magento by making subdomains for stating content like media, js etc and configure in magento application. I had this setup in my earlier hosting making the site to load ~1 sec. I have moved the site to cloudways now it loads ~4 seconds

  15. Update Git

    Cloudways is still running Git 2.1.4 released on 18-Dec-2014. A handful of really neat features have been added to Git since then. One new feature that would be very helpful to have on Cloudways servers is the updateInstead option for the receive.denyCurrentBranch config added in Git 2.3, which allows pushing directly to the server even if the branch is checked out on the server. This would eliminate the need to set up a repository on an intermediary server. Users could just add their Cloudways server as a remote in their local git repository and push directly from there to the…

  17. Different MySQL users - one for managing database and one with limited permissions for usage in scripts

    As many apps stores MySQL credentials in a plain text inside code. I suggest to provide us with 2 MySQL users
    1) Admin user - with the most wide permissions
    2) Script user - allowed only to manipulate with rows (CRUD)

    This is common security practice on other hostings.

  18. run script after git deploy

    the ability to provide a .sh script that will be run after each git deploy if the file cloudways/build.sh is found for exemple.

    this way you can run npm install, or anything related to a framework deploy (symfony commands for exemple), or even database migrations
