  1. Offer Ramnode VPS

    Please offer ramnode as an option. They have good track record of positive reviews, and their specs depending on price range is even better than DO.

  2. How to setup the sender mail for each website, please?

    Hi,

    I am using Gmail SMTP for current server, which related email is sinoceo@hotmail.com.

    Now I am testing Magento website, which when customer place order or signup, the Magento will send related email to the customer but the sender always is honestyplus@gmail, which is our Gmail account for Gmail SMTP. But we need the sender if what we setup, such as info@thumbpackaging.com for thumbpackaging.com website. So how we should setup, please? I believe it's related with the server because I am also using other server from Knownhost.com, which we launched many websites and the sender both are different according…

  3. Option to DELETE account quickly

    This is a follow-up to this: http://feedback.cloudways.com/forums/203824-service-improvement/suggestions/9504162-option-to-close-account-quickly

    As I said, what I am suggesting here is a quick way to properly CLOSE/DELETE an account.

    Cloudways currently does not offer such an option.

  4. Add a text option for 2 factor authentication

    The 2 factor authentication is a great feature! You might even get more users on board if there could be an option to receive a text instead of a message through Google Authenticator (ease of use).

  5. Trial Account expires after deleting a server

    I was setting up a trial account to evaluate Cloudways. I created a server on DigitalOcean, but noticed only after creation that the default location was set to London.

    Being in the US, I wanted to recreate it in the SF or NY zone. So I clicked to delete the server.

    Immediately after deleting, I was presented with a message stating that my 14-day trial account was now expired... just minutes in.

    I'm fine with a one server limit, but I would expect that to be limited to one simultaneous instance.

    In lieu of that, it would have been nice…

  8. Add support for PHPEd debugger

    Hi,

    Could you possibly add support for PHPEd? It's one of the most popular PHP development IDEs. It has its own debugger extension as described here: http://www.nusphere.com/kb/technicalfaq/howto_install_dbg_module.htm

    An overview of their debugger is here:
    http://www.nusphere.com/products/php_debugger.htm?

    Basically, it involves uploading the debugger extension to the server and making some modifications to the PHP.ini file.

  9. Offer a LAPP stack as an alternative to a LAMP stack.

    I'd like either bare "metal" spin that allows installing whatever on it or a LAPP stack... We have applications that like that better.

  10. Cloudways should partner with ewww.io to bring their tool as a MediaWiki extension

    ewww.io has a magnificent Wordpress plugin that can batch optimize images in directories, even outside the wp-uploads directory. To have this capability in MediaWiki installs would be a huge improvement in the lives of administrators of MediaWiki websites that deal a lot with images. To get bulk optimization of gifs, jpegs, pngs, it would be great. I have pitched the idea to ewww.io before, but I think they don't have many resources. If CloudWays could support them in a way, it would also benefit all the CloudWays customers with huge MediaWiki installations

  13. Better app submission

    The process should be:

    1 - Type of the app (Wordpress, Prestashop...)
    2 - Name of the app (My Application)
    3 - Primary Domain (myappdomain.com)
    4 - SSH Key (Yes[] - No[] and if yes "Paste you SSH Key)

    Actually these steps means 3 app restarts and 5 minutes, with all these steps at the app creation time it would take no more than 1mn.

  14. Deny all, permit only from my country

    I would like to have the capability to permit connections to my website only from my country. The site is on our local language and there is little to no reason to permit connections from other places (aside from Google robots).

  15. Enable SSLSessionCache

    This configures the storage type of the global/inter-process SSL Session Cache. This cache is an optional facility which speeds up parallel request processing. For requests to the same server process (via HTTP keep-alive), OpenSSL already caches the SSL session information locally. But because modern clients request inlined images and other data via parallel requests (usually up to four parallel requests are common) those requests are served by different pre-forked server processes. Here an inter-process cache helps to avoid unnecessary session handshakes.

    Ex.: SSLSessionCache shm:/usr/local/apache/logs/sslgcachedata(32000)

    https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mod_ssl.html#sslsessioncache

    Or via Memcached (but this requires Apache v2.4) :
    https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/en/mod/mod_socache_memcache.html

  18. Less drag'n'drop sensitivity

    The drag'n'drop sensitivity of the sections in the server and app overview page are very high, making it almost impossible to click the open and close button without triggering a sorting instead. Specially when using a wacom stylus.

    You might want to consider adding som sort of "min. drag distance before sorting" to each section to avoid unintentionally sorting events.

  20. Add the F1-Micro hosting plan for Google Compute Engine

    Due to its specifications and Google's infrastructure, the F1-Micro plan will be a great addition for CloudWays, since the other entry-level option from DigitalOcean is just not sufficient.
