  1. Modern new user interface - Click&Go

    Some plans to do better interface of your panel ? I know that its not so critical than functions, but still interface need to follow great function :)
    If you check your partners DigitalOcean or now even new beta SendGrid panel it looks nice, clean and simple.

    This panel looks little bit oldies for that kind of quality technology what you offers. I think your quality service deserve also quality user interface.

    My view is, that ''member area'' looks nice and it would be much better if also panel looks similar way.

    I understand that you use many external systems…

    So, a bit later than expected but our new console & website are here!. Console, while keeping the simplicity and usability of previous one, is now much nicer and modern (fully developed using Google Material-design guidelines).

    You have a link to test it inside the old console. After receiving feedback and doing the necessary improvements will set it as default.

    You can leave your feedback through a survey accessible inside the new console.

  2. Add Linode As A Hosting Provider

    I have tested Linode myself and found it better than many hosting providers and is also recommended by many websites and companies like WPEngine. As a CloudWays customer I want to suggest that it will be more better for CloudWays (for more sale) and for its customers (for better services) if you add Linode as a hosting provider as you have already added Amazon & Digital Ocean.

    Best Regards,
    Aamer

    Linode is now available on Cloudways Platform

    You can now launch a Linode cloud server on the Cloudways Platform and get a taste of the best managed cloud hosting experience at very economical prices.

  3. Wildcard Subdomains for WP Multisite App

    When using WP multisite with subdomains, it's a real pain to have to add each subdomain to the app control panel to make it work. Wildcard subdomains are the preferred method, since you only have to set it up one time. After that WP controls subdomains, and so no additional info is required.

  4. Add feedback.cloudways.com to the Member's Area and Site Footer

    It would be great if the feedback platform could be directly linked from the Member's Area and the Cloudways site footer.

    I always forget how to get back here and I'm sure a lot of customers potential and otherwise would be pleased to see you have taken the time to set a platform like this up!

  5. get rid of the cell phone requirement

    So I just signed into your service and I know it may be unbelievable but I don't have a cell phone number. I don't see the point of the requirement I could go buy a sim card for $2 - $5 but I honestly just dislike cell phones. I had to enter my wife's number in order to activate my account. I have accounts with both linode and digital ocean and didn't have an issue setting up the account without a cell phone but for some reason it's a problem for you guys. Really dumb. You should remove any impediment…

  7. Switch from trial to payment

    We had a trial version, now we were asked by you to upgrade. We did so, unfortunately all our work is gone!
    Any chance to get access to our work of the last week?

    Thanks, Diana

  9. The ability to have multiple SSL certificates on ONE server instance

    I would like to see the ability to have multiple SSL certificates on ONE server instance. Right now you have to create another server instance, with its additional costs.

    We are happy to announce that this has been finally completed and it is now live. We are updating KBs and creating blog posts related to it, so stay tuned.

  10. Support Amazon C3 family instances

    We are paying for an instance that is way over spaced just to acquire the processing capability that a c3.xlarge will provide without the costly RAM which we do not need.

    Prestashop is a process hungry system. If Cloudways professes to be a Prestashop hosting expert I would have thought you would have known this and accommodated the processing power required on a competitive basis.

  14. Add APC Settings to the Server Control Panel

    Instead of having to contact support or use .htaccess files to manage APC settings, having the APC Settings directly on the dashboard would be nice

    By now we have added APC memory. Let us know what else you would want to see under Server Settings related to APC and we will make it happen.

  15. Possibility to create folder above public_html for ClicknGO plan

    ClicknGo plan does not allow to create a folder above publichtml. We have an application that requires repository folder created above publichtml to run in a secure mode. We only have option to upgrade our plan to PowerGrid due to this. An option to create a folder above public_html that would also be backed up to offsite backup would make ClicknGo a perfect plan.

  17. Laravel

    CloudWays is a great hosting platform, but I would like to see dedicated support built in for Laravel, this would simplify having to set up Laravel for APC/Memcached and would also negate having to play around with the folder structure of laravel (index.php being in the public folder of the application install)

  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.

  20. Full Screen for MySQL manager

    Could you allow 100% width for the MySQL manager. The current boxed design only allows a viewable width of 730px which makes it difficult to view data tables with lots of columns.

    It's a MySQL manager, it doesn't need to be pretty. Usability should take precendant.
