  1. Single codebase Drupal?

    The idea is simple and yet pretty complicated... The multiple Drupal apps hosted from _single_ codebase. This is similar to Aegir approach - one "platform", multple "sites".
    Pros:
    -APC is caching the same files
    -Less storage space, CPU, memory, IO needed
    -Less management
    Cons:
    -Totally new approach, probably needs entire logic change, inserting "platform" between server and app

  2. 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.

  7. Client specific billing for apps or servers

    Could you guys add in a client billing feature like they have at https://wpoven.com/?
    You can enter clients attached to applications and bill them monthly through the site control panel. It would be the cherry on top for Cloudways.

  10. 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/ssl_gcache_data(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

  11. Add Full URL path to files to Application Management tab

    This is the part of the file path that precedes your document root (eg /home/<your-id>.cloudwaysapps.com/<your-user>/public_html/public_html/). This is relatively easy to find but simply posting it as part of the application information would save needless steps.

  13. git deployment in a folder

    Git deployment in Click&Go console start automatically in the document root folder. If my git repository do not contains the document root folder then i can't use the click&go console, without changing my git repository. This is avoided also if i have more repositories in the same document root. I would like the click&go console to have a destination folder to deploy in.

  14. Add bank transfer as post-payment and add funds method

    It would be nice if we could add funds or be billed trough a Bank transfer or PayPal. Some (of my) clients are not comfortable to give their CB numbers...

  16. Block semalt.com and associated sites Bad Bots

    Semalt.com is causing problems for many sites across the web and is messing up Google Analytics results and reports. I've also read that they do not adhere to robot.txt protocol.

    I've added some rules to my htaccess. as they keep creating different domains that they send bots from. I tried to deny their IP in htaccess but this caused a 500 server error for me.

    I was wondering if you'd ever consider blocking these sites server side for all your customers.

    You can easily achieve this via the Dump and Import features of the Click&Go Mysql Manager from console. We think that this should be enough for most cases.
