  1. 2FA with Whitelisting

    For those with 2FA, allow someone to whitelist their work ip address for XX days, so that 2FA is only required when time expires or access is from a new ip.

  2. Feature Request: Log analysis section

    I made contact via suppot chat and ask if it was possible to install GoAccess on my server for a visual and accurate log view.
    Since it was not possible all i can do is suggest to make a section on server panel to analyse server logs and have a clear vision of traffic and load.

  5. Allow disabling of weak SSH key exchange algorithms

    PCI Compliance now regards weak ssh key exchange algorithms as a liability. There should be a way to disable them. It's fairly easy to set up in open-ssh: https://infosec.mozilla.org/guidelines/openssh#Configuration

  6. Force 2FA for Team Members

    As account owner, I can setup 2FA on the main account, but I can't force my team members (some of whom have full access) to do so. This obviously creates a security loophole.

  7. Ability to add multiple SSL certificates per application (neither wildcard nor SAN)

    If we have a multisite, we need a wildcard SSL for the subdomains. However if we go further, and provide custom domain (domain mapping) the problem comes that the SSL certificate is only for our domain not the mapped. Would be great if we can (even manually) create more than one certificate. SAN certificates is not the good option, since:

    • We are using the wildcard for the own subdomains.
    • There is a hard limit with the 100 domains.
    • All the custom domains would be listed as secondary domains in the certificate details.

  8. Fix security problem with Team Member

    My niche is high risk for online hacking. In Cloudways I can add a team member, which sends his un-encrypted password to his account. This is high risk. As owner of my account I should be able to change his password, and then I can share via a secure app like Last Pass. Please consider this a high priority request. Thank You

  9. Firewall Management + fail2ban support

    It would be useful to have the ability to configure the default firewall rules at server level, rather than relying on htaccess files which are useless for managing large data sets (i.e. IP lists/ranges).

    Additionally, having fail2ban installed and bridging between the firewall would be extremely helpful for using plugins like wp-fail2ban, which automatically bans "bruteforce" login attempts at server level, rather than application level.

  10. Add to CloudwaysCDN DDoS Protection and WAF

    Now that there is a Partnership With StackPath this shouldn't be hard. Add another option, charge more, but add the possibility please. If you look at the comments about CloudwaysCDN on the Facebook Group and on the blogpost about it you'll see there is a demand for it.

  12. Provide an Edit feature for the admin panel URL path name

    Vendors (magento) recommend changing the control panel name from "admin" to something else, it would be great if you can provide an edit facility so we can modify the admin URL so that we can launch the control panel from within cloudways as it only permits the default control panel name.

  15. Security Log for Team Members

    I would love to see some form of a actions/security log which is stores X amount of entries per month.

    What Security/Actions Log?

    Ability to track who has logged in from where.
    Which Team Member has moved, created, deleted applications.
    Which Team Member has changed a setting within Servers/Applictions.

    Any other detailed information.

    Here is an example that PHPBB uses, or Wordpress Security Audit which has similar functions as to what im suggesting.

    Ability to export the log via csv would be great too. This would keep your DB less cluttered as you would purge the entries every…

  18. Allow customers to create database users

    When having Master Credentials you con go to the MySQL Manager and create a user, but when you want to save you get:
    "Access denied; you need (at least one of) the CREATE USER privilege(s) for this operation"
    You should allow permissons for Master Credentials to creat DB users

  19. Enable Encrypted RDS MySQL Database

    Enabling Encrypted MySQL Database on Amazon AWS would enable encryption at rest and improve security.

    This would be a truly unique offering (trust me, I have been researching this for days), one that I can't believe isn't more requested or offered given the hacks and breaches we have seen over the last few years.
