  1. Decrease of Price For Vultr Servers

    We all know that Vultr recently decreased their Server Pricing.

    It's now offering 512MB Server fro 2.5$ and 1GB Server for 5$

    But Cloudways is charging insanely on top of that for offering Vultr Servers.

    For 5$ Vultr Plan ( 1GB Server ), We need to pay 11$. That is 220% more than what we pay at Vultr

    This insane price is for the other plans too. And, There's no 2.5$ plan option in CloudWays.

    please support this feedback until CloudWays changes the pricing.

              • Server Share Billing is Unfair

                In Cloudways we get to share our server with other CloudWays users. But billing both of the users ( owner & shared account holder ) the complete price of the server is unfair.

                Let me break this down:

                Let's say "USER A" has 7$ DO 512MB Server and he shares it with "USER B"

                Then Cloudways is charging 7$x2 = 14$ from both the users.

                "USER B" is getting only CloudWays Console features with the shared server. All the resources are same

                Same 512MB ram, Single core Cpu, and 20 GB SSD.

                But still, he has to pay total 7$…

                • Allow to add additional IP address

                  Here is the idea, let say I have 2 websites that have different location of target visitors, for e.g: Website A is intended for visitors from South East Asia, and Website B intended for visitors from Central America, as you know there are timezone different approx 12 hours..

                  Note: Both websites has a quite huge visitors >5,000/day. And let say I have server DO with 2 GB RAM already that cost $34/month. Rather than buy another server 2 GB RAM, I would prefer to buy additional IP address that might cost me $2/month. and I would not bother with the…

                  • Clone application settings

                    When you clone an application, you should have an option to clone also:
                    - Application credentials
                    - Domains
                    - Cron Jobs
                    - SSL Certificates
                    - Application settings
                    - CDN settings

                    At the moment, the Application Cloning process only clones the files+database, with the result that the app is working but then you have to duplicate all those settings manually in the Platform.

                    • Web based file manager

                      I like to use the web-based file manager like the FileManager feature in cPanel. Easy to control and use the files. I am not technical savvy. I dont know SSH and Linux command. Also dont like to use FTP reason being its slow.

                      Using web-based file manager is the best. Because upload a zip file of WordPress which consist of thousands of files. It can save a lot of time when doing so. Refer to cPanel, then you will get what I mean.

                        I develop using React.js. Node.js/Meteor, as well as MongoDB. I would love to use cloudways to launch and develop applications using this stack. This would be a game changer for real developers. I hope you all work on this soon. Thank you

                          • Laravel Artisan Commands

                            It would be great if you could provide a GUI (buttons) for basic Laravel commands, such as:

                            php artisan migrate
                            php artisan migrate:refresh
                            composer update
                            php artisan optimize
                            php artisan cache:clear

                            These are such basic commands that need to be run at the root level of each project and if you could provide simple buttons it would avoid a trip to the built in browser ssh tool.

                              • automatic restart when server goes down

                                I think it's essential that the servers are fixed so that if they go down they automatically restart the server especially on digital ocean + vultr

                                A few times I've had the site receive a traffic spike out of the ordinary and it pulled my sites down until I manually rebooted it. It should be automatic.

                                  A file manager like Cpanel is all that i felt missing on your services and I tried the SFTP but its so clumsy compared to the file manager . The web is expanding and a lot of non techies are coming on board . All os us need our life to be as less technical as possible . Not just for us , but for your own rise in business , please consider adding a file manager .

If you look at the comments about CloudwaysCDN on the Facebook Group and on the blogpost about it you'll see there is a demand for it.

                                        • Firewall Management + fail2ban support

                                          It would be useful to have the ability to configure the default firewall rules at server level, rather than relying on htaccess files which are useless for managing large data sets (i.e. IP lists/ranges).

                                          Additionally, having fail2ban installed and bridging between the firewall would be extremely helpful for using plugins like wp-fail2ban, which automatically bans "bruteforce" login attempts at server level, rather than application level.
