    Cloudflare just added HTTP/3. I hope Cloudways adds support for this soon. This is in my mind the most important feature that Cloudways should be working on.

    Cloudways uses Let's Encrypt for SSL. I agree with Let's Encrypt's executive director that SSL badges are a bad idea. Take a look at https://community.letsencrypt.org/t/lets-encrypt-badge-for-websites/6863/9

    Here are some examples of how other plugins handle this.

    Swift Performance's Exclude URLs text box says:
    URLs which contains that string won't be cached. Use leading/trailing # for regex

    And WP Rocket gives an example of
    /members/(.*)
    And says
    The domain part of the URL will be stripped automatically.
    Use (.*) wildcards to address multiple URLs under a given path.

    I wrote a Python script that grabs and charts this info for me. At the center of the script is the following.

    grep = 'grep -I' # -I ignores .gz and other binary files # use grep = 'zgrep' for older dates to search through the gzipped files
    daystr = day.strftime('%d/%b/%Y')
    app_dir = str(site.app_dir).replace('~','$HOME') # It doesn't expand ~ by itself for whatever reason.
    search_command = (
    '| cut -d[ -f2 ' # split each line into fields, using [ as the deliminator, and grab the second field
    '| awk '
    '-F: ' # The -F option speficies a separator. We want to get the hour -- the second item of the timestamp -- and so we use a colon as a delimiter
    '\'{ split($4, A, " "); ' # Create the array A that will contain the results of splitting $4 (everything after the timestamp) with a space character
    'h[$2]+=A[7]; } ' # Create or add to the array h. The key is the hour and the value are the bytes (7th column in our splitted array)
    'END ' # What comes next will be processed after running through all of the data
    '{ for (i in h) print h[i], i":00"}\' ' # for each hour output the hour followed by how many bytes where recorded for that time
    )

    ssh.check_output(
    f'cd "{app_dir}/logs"; '
    'LC_ALL=C; ' # Speed things up by using ASCII instead of UTF-8
    f'{grep} "{daystr}" *.access.log* ' # search for lines of text containing our date
    # hint: for debugging you can use the tail command for quicker searches
    + search_command
    )

    Couldn't you do this with the Cloudways API and WP-CLI.

    Would be great for those of us who are already using a backup solution (in my case BackupBuddy for full off-site backups and WP time capsule for continuous backups) to not be forced into paying for Cloudways to do additional backups.

    goaccess.io is another good web-log analyzer. Implementing this would give an idea of which apps where consuming the most resources, which is another requested feature -- http://feedback.cloudways.com/forums/203824-service-improvement/suggestions/15302208-monthly-bandwidth-on-per-app-basis

    For anyone who comes here, this appears to be possible using the Cloudways API. Here is some documentation from CloudWays on how to create a script in PHP that accomplishes this. Their script could be triggered through a cron job, URL, SSH, or what have you. https://www.cloudways.com/blog/automatically-purging-varnish-cache-using-cloudways-api/
