  1. Allow us to be able to implement additional security headers.

    I'd like to have the abiity to implement the following headers on NginX and Apache so I can convince my clients they can pass Header Security Test in conjunction with PCI/DSS. The following are recommendations.

    NginX Headers
    addheader X-Frame-Options "SAMEORIGIN" always;
    add
    header X-Xss-Protection "1; mode=block" always;
    add_header X-Content-Type-Options "nosniff" always;

    Apache Headers
    Header always set X-Frame-Options "SAMEORIGIN"
    Header always set X-Xss-Protection "1; mode=block"
    Header always set X-Content-Type-Options "nosniff"

    Referrer-Policy: strict-origin-when-cross-origin

  5. Console - Analytics - Traffic. Make the Url's clickable/copyable

    Quite simply, when viewing a long url in the Console Analytics it is not possible to copy or load the URL in question.

    see the example below

  6. Add Rackspace Office 365 Plans

    Rackspace offer Office 365 plans... since cloudways is a partner for email, would be awesome to extend this relationship to include the office 365 offers (preferably at a discount rate!).

  8. Block other domains visibility from whois services

    Hi, I'd like to suggest a new feature to server owner's security, to block other domains visibility from whois services. at the moment, anyone can go to any whois service (i.e. http://reverseip.domaintools.com) and by typing domain name, or the IP address can check what other domains are hosted on this server. i think, to privacy of users and server owners, this is a lack. it may be just an additional feature, but i'm sure people would love to see this as an option to disable this from public view.

  9. Client Specific Billing - Allow us to charge clients for App monthly or anually

    This feature is a must, I'm surprised it hasn't caught on any attention. I have a server with 25 applications each one for different clients. I have to keep a log of how much each client has to pay every month or year. If we could do this directly in Cloudways it would be great.

  10. Prenotification of scheduled maintenance

    When the server provider has scheduled maintenance planned, Cloudways should notify server admin (via cloudways bot & email?) that scheduled maintenance is planned, including timescales and servers affected.

    it is much more professional for us to let our clients know that downtime is likely rather than our clients to contact us complaining of application downtime.

  12. Xdebug support for PHP 7.3 and 7.4

    For debugging Magento 2 stores the Xdebug is invaluable.

    Magento 2.4 will only support PHP 7.3 and 7.4.

    We need a solution for running Xdebug on newer PHP versions.

  13. Add a manual option to block/blacklist specific traffic in Bot Protection

    It's great that Bot Protection blocks traffic that meets Cloudways' predefined criteria automatically, but there is other "bad" traffic that continues to get through. It would be helpful to be able to manually block specific traffic that is malicious to our apps. Similar to the "whitelist" function already in place, it would be great to have a second option to blacklist them.

    Adam from WPcrafter. Website takes forever to load the backend always hated it. I wanted sheer performance.

    But now I deleted the server and the trial expired so that caused a bad experience as I had 2 days left and really your trial should be longer.

    I rate it Cways 4 out of 5. I don't remember telling me that deleting my server will kill my trial.

    You guys can do better on that one and work for implementing a 30 day trial (or reseller option etc.).

  15. Allow ShipStation IP's WooCommerce Access Through Bot Protection

    When we batch orders on ShipStation the callback to the server to change the order status within WooCommerce is not working.

    This started happening after Bot Protection was turned on.

    I understand we can turn Bot Protection off.

    It would just be nice to be protected and to allow ShipStation to change the order status in the application at the same time.

  17. Add Rackspace Email Plus & Archiving

    It's awesome to have Rackspace Email integrated with cloudways and the discounted prices is a bonus! Just surprised to learn that this is a half way integration... No option exists for users to add cloud storage (Rackspace Email Plus) or archiving (Rackspace Add Archiving). Please complete this offering and extend the options to add the other plans at the partner discounted price.

  19. Bot Protection DISABLED BY DEFAULT in the application

    Bot Protection DISABLED BY DEFAULT in the application

    I suggest adding an option to start a new app on the server with the application of the Protection bot OFF by DEFAULT.
    If needed, the administrator can activate it later.
    This prevents false positive blocking when the site is being developed.
    We always use the wordfence plugin for wordpress, it works much better than Malcare's Bot protection.

    Thanks for listening.

  20. Offer the option to create a new site as a "Staging" site

    Currently, new sites cannot be created with the development user/pass UI for adding a username and password to access the site. When you are developing a new site it is important to keep it from being crawled by search engines, so it needs to be behind password protection. right now the only way to accomplish this is to either edit the htaccess file or else install a maintenance plugin.

    Specifically, I wanted to create a Staging site from a site that is currently hosted on a server that has an older database. My development server has the latest versions of…
