  1. Share benchmarks to know which is the best service that fits our projects

    I have read many reviews with different benchmarks, but for new people like me, it would be nice to have some documentation to know which server and which plan fits our project, based on the number of pageviews, CMS, etc.

  2. Higher update frequency for logs

    As an example the logfile "apache_prestashop-114732-326775.cloudwaysapps.com.access.log" of my prestashop installation is only updated approx. 4 times per hour
    Sometimes it would be helpful for bugfixing if the files are updated more frequently.

  5. Progressive Web App (PWA)

    Make your web console a progressive web app so that we can install directly to our android/ios home screens using "Add to ..." button.

    Also add a service worker for offline access of already loaded data.

  8. PCRE version too low for PHP 7.0

    Hi there,

    as you can read here: https://secure.php.net/manual/en/pcre.installation.php
    with PHP 7.0.3 the minimum required version of PCRE is 8.38.

    Your servers still use PCRE version 8.35. Dunno if I am the first who experiences this problem, but this leads to PHP sigfault crashes in my applications (TYPO3, Shopware) and they do not respond any more.

    Any chance you're updating to PCRE 8.38 in the near future?

    Thanky a lot,
    Wolfgang

  10. autoscale storage

    It would be nice that you are also have the option to autoscale storage.
    If freespace is below X add Y to storage.

  12. InnoDB memcached Plugin for MySQL 5.6

    Since you offer MySQL 5.6 and install Memcache it would be nice to have a native NoSQL setup using the InnoDB memcached Plugin

  15. Explicitly warn in the Access Detail page that your IP could be banned...

    Please, for the love of god, write somewhere in the Access Detail page that your IP could be banned... In big bold letters would be nice.

    I struggled for 7 hours to figure out why I kept getting “Software caused connection abort” errors while connecting with SFTP. I didn't even know when my IP got banned, or why.

    The project manager whitelisted it and it's fine now...

  16. Add file (img) storage and organization ability

    There is currently no way to store images in a folder on the server and view them without the exact URL. I recommend adding a feature like this. It's pretty basic and a helpful function.

  17. Update pear for compatibility with your PHP7 servers

    The current version of Pear on Digital Ocean servers is not compatible with PHP 7. Pear needs to be upgraded to 1.10. There are others which could be updated/added as well, such as php7.0-mbstring & php7.0-zip.
    See https://tickets.cloudways.com/hc/en-us/requests/66271 for more info.

  18. SSL Autorenewal Doesn't Work - Email Notification before Expiry?

    The autorenewal of SSLs doesn't work. I know you're working on it. But to minimise the down time could you at least notify by email before the SSL expires so we can quickly act on it and manual renew?

  19. Allow SSH2 on your servers

    I want to use a simple application that requires SSH2, and this is not compatible with your server configuration for some reason.
