  1. Transfer servers or applications between accounts

    I would love to be able to start a new server and transfer it to my client once I'm done so he would be billed for it.
    On AWS you can change the billing for a specific stack.

    With some delay, but the new console and new website are now live. Fully responsive, you should have a much better experience when accessing both from your mobile devices.

  6. Add Google single sign on login to ClicknGo (and new control panel)

    You currently offer Linkedin and Github sso, but please allow Google sso. This would be a great feature for Google Apps for business users and even others with a gmail account.

  7. API support

    I'd like to recommend you have API support added to your system. I'd love to be able to launch and control Cloudways services through an API.

    Now you can updated username and password for both Master Credentials and Application Credentials:
    https://support.cloudways.com/which-is-the-difference-between-master-credentials-and-application-credentials/

    You can also change the database password (please note that you need to update manually the database password in your applications configuration files).

    We don’t have plans to allow FQDN change (FQDN is just meant for you to point your own domain to via CNAME) nor database name / database username changes. These are core to many platform processes and we can’t allow for them to be updated.

  10. Enable NewRelic application monitoring

    Your server monitoring is useful, but it would be nice to be able to monitor specific applications. A way to auto-install the NewRelic client would be especially useful.

  13. Add PHP 5.5x to your stack options

    My developer is asking me for a stack option using PHP 5.5x, it would be great this could be offered on ClicknGo platforms especially considering PHP is recommending 5.4 to be phased out: http://php.net/archive/2014.php#id2014-09-18-2

  14. Cloudways please document your security practices

    I would like to suggest that Cloudways publishes an article or other document that describes how Cloudways maintains, patches, updates servers and secures them.

    The intent is not to disclose details that puts security at risk but instead demonstrates the value Cloudways is providing in the area of helping its customers maintain a secure server and application environment.

    Information should include frequency of update / patch deployment, frequency of security scans for malware / unauthorized access, firewall ports and services that are open especially those for inbound traffic from the Internet, intrusion protection mechanisms, transparency reports for government information requests…

    This is now completed.

    Under Server Settings & Packages section (Server tab) you can replace mysql with mariadb.

    Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure
    that all the applications in the server will work with the deployed database.

    Enjoy!

  18. enforce https

    Please add a feature to the Cloudways dashboard to easily force HTTPS. It's not hard to add a rewrite rule to .htaccess but many platforms such as Kinsta and SiteGround have easy switch for this.

  19. Allow cloning of the apps between different servers under the same Click&Go account

    It would be very useful to be able to clone an app to a different existing server under the same Click&Go account. This way it could be easier manage the resources used on different servers.

    Cloudways

    This is now live. In the Application tab, if you click on clone for any application you can now choose:

    • Clone on same server.
    • Clone to new server.
    • Clone to any other existing server in your account.
