  1. 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.

  2. Add elastic email log in console

    I really like how easy it is to use elastic email in Cloudways. However, there is no way to find out if emails were sent/delivered. We have to chat with support to check if an email was sent.

    It would be nice to have an interface in console to view sent email logs.

  4. Auto-Cleaning Option for Logs (Error & Access)

    On top of not being able to delete logs ourselves (which should be made possible - as suggested by other feature request), it would be massively useful if there was an option to set a timer for logs (both error & access) to be auto-cleaned.

    Even if we can control the error logs to a degree (by fixing the application errors), we can't fully control access logs which is a problem because it literally means that the disk space for app is constantly growing - and if you don't pay attention it could take your site down due to full…

  5. Specify time of day for backups

    It would be nice to be able to specify a general time of day for backups to be made. Something like morning, noon, night. Of course to be able to pick the exact hour would be even better.

    Right now backups are being made around 9pm local time on my server and that is making things very slow whenever I work in the admin area of wordpress, which is around 9pm in the evening.

    Thanks

  7. Backup single applications

    Actually, we can take SERVER backups but we can RESTORE single applications. This is good but it would be great if we could also take a backup of a single application.

    Consider this : we'll deploy an upgrade but before we want to made a backup that we can restore just after deployment if anything goes wrong.

    • Actually, we need to take a full server backup, which takes several minutes ;
    • I f we could made a backup of this single app, it would take 90% less time.

    This could be placed at the same level than RESTORE tab under…

  8. Add dashboard for applications

    We have a console for Servers, where we can list all of our servers, enter each one and see the list of Applications on that server (by hitting application management and then viewing the drop-down list)

    I'd like a console for viewing all applications, independent of server, so we could find a specific site without having to trudge through each server screen.

    It'd simply act as a list of shortcuts directly into the Application Management screen for each.

    At the end of the day, we only care about our Applications, that we need servers to host them is incidental, ideally…

  10. Control panel change

    For convenience; I would like to change the password and user name shown under ACCESS DETAILS - > ADMIN PANEL; to match my old account details. This is so that when I log into Cloudways, I can quickly navigate between Apps and websites without having to rely on browsers to store passwords for admin panels. This is why I was originally attracted to cloudways, but then realised after migrating that i had to use other logins.

  11. Add a console to manage email aliases

    Hello, I suggest you add a console to manage email aliases to arrive in email boxes of created email accounts managed in Rackspace. Other hosts do that, and I like to be flexible with creating aliases. Thx.

  13. allow search by autogenerated app folder name

    would be great if i could enter the actual app folder name that is auto generated by your system, into the panel interface search, and have the correct application show. currently it is a giant pain to figure out which app is running high on resources on top without doing a bunch of looking around.

    Thank you very much, Bryan, for highlighting this issue.

    We have now fixed it. You should be able to remove git deployments from Firefox as well now.

  15. 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.

  16. Make the "Restart" Buttons Work in the New Platform

    When Apache or MySQL go down, the "restart" buttons can't be clicked and are always grayed out. I always need to chat with your support to get things restarted. It would be fantastic if these buttons worked.

  17. Allow account owners/master user to create application credentials directly

    I should be able to have full control over my team members. if i want to set their login password i should be able to do it, but as it stands right now I have to bother my user and ask them to perform a password creation step that they shouldn't have to.

    I should be able to go to them and say "here is your access" as I don't want them to have access to the Cloudways console, I just want them to have an SFTP login, thats it. Requiring them to login and create their own credentials is…

    Thank you for all your votes. We have now made it possible for account owners/master users to create as many application credentials as they like directly, without the need of creating team members first.

    Please note that SSH access for applications will need to be enabled from within “Application Settings > General” in order for SSH to work for any application credentials created this way.

  18. Better wording for Delete Primary Domain under Domain Management

    This is a suggestion for better wording when you click on the Delete button of a primary domain that has been set.

    The pop up window text says: "Are you sure you want to delete Application Primary Domain?"

    This can be confused to think you might delete the applications itself. Wording such as: "Are you should you would like to delete this primary domain assigned to the application?" would be more specific.

  20. keep the application credential in master

    I think you should keep the applications sftp access credential in the master account. I know that it seem duplicated but in fact, it's not. since the application credential locks to one applications. also, if I need a application credentail I would need to create a team member account and do all the crazy thing to set up the new member account in order to make the application credentials. this is very tedious and troublesome sometime because all we need is to get the credential info and send it to someone. Normally, we need the application credentail is because we…
