Support wildcard DNS, so Wordpress Multisite auto create sub domains
As it is now, we have to manually create the sub domains or use sub directories, which isn't the best solution. Personally I don't have time or even want to do this manually, and I guess this is the case for most people that are interested in Multisites.
As Todd said (in new platform) when using a Custom Certificate, you can just generate a wildcard certificate (*.mydomain.com), that you can use for WP Multisites, or any other needs you have. Wildcard certificates are not yet supported via Let’s Encrypt certificate authority.

Can't believe this is not a thing, cPanel has had this for like 10 years.

You just gotta add *.yourdomain.com as an additional domain in the domain management panel and then you can add as many subs dynamically as you want.

Not just wildcard DNS for subdomains but for domains. It would be nice to use a multisite domain mapping plugin so that a user can enter their domain and it just works, without us having to manually enter the domain in the Cloudways dashboard.
Agreed - Manual method of adding sub domains is like going back in time. It's inefficient and counter productive. Cloudways is a fantastic platform but these things need to be sorted. This is quite a hindrance for me to move all my sites here.
