  1. Multi-tier (more than one server for my application, load balancer, web servers, database server...)

    I would love to have the option of setting up a multi-server application for more targeted and cost effective scaling. For instance, Say I could create a Wordpress site with a dedicated DB server, a dedicated load balancer, and a dedicated Web server. As my site grows, I can scale the specific part that is needed. If my site is gets a lot of views (reads), but doesn't make many writes, scaling my existing web server (or adding another instance) may be what's needed. If I'm running a WooCommerce site and start pushing the limits of my db server, increasing…

    • Cloudways should add DDoS protection service

      DDoS is a common problem now, maybe Cloudways can add a DDoS Mitigation service and upgrade their Network hardware to secure against Level 3 DDoS attacks

        After some difficulties with Cloudflare, we have spoken now with Sucuri (https://sucuri.net/). They offer malware removal, website firewall (providing DDoS protection among other things, requires DNS redirection to point to their firewalls) and site scanning (via local agent). All features independent (we can offer all or some).

        We are thinking that a better approach to solving our customers problems when it comes to security and performance will be to offer (as add-ons) Sucuri (security centric and very focused on our most common apps) and MaxCDN (pure CDN focused on performance).

        Any one has had experience with Sucuri? We have already tested (and in talks with them) and looks very promising.

        Let us know thoughts on this (Sucuri + MaxCDN) approach (vs Cloudfront). We know this is well overdue and want to get it rolling.

      • 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.

          • WordPress (or other apps) staging (live and test site combination)

            Cloudways definition of staging is somewhat different from other managed WP services like SiteGround and MT Premium WP. It would be great to have dual WP setup for live and test without cloning, and hopefully with easy/simple sync feature.

              • Backup single applications

                Actually, we can take SERVER backups but we can RESTORE single applications. This is good but it would be great if we could also take a backup of a single application.

                Consider this : we'll deploy an upgrade but before we want to made a backup that we can restore just after deployment if anything goes wrong.

                - Actually, we need to take a full server backup, which takes several minutes ;
                - I f we could made a backup of this single app, it would take 90% less time.

                This could be placed at the same level than RESTORE…

                • A better backup scheme

                  So here my suggestion for a better backup scheme. Do something like keeping:
                  = 1 - 3 monthly backups
                  + 3 weekly backups
                  + 4 - 6 daily backups
                  This way a longer period is covered without increasing the space required for backups. You can try keeping it at 8, although 12 would be ideal as it will cover last 3 mo, last 3 wk, and last 6 days.

                  Other suggestions:
                  - Allow to choose the time of day to do backup so it won't slow down the server during busy hours.
                  - Allow to choose external backup destination like…

                      For people that wanted to add CW as a WHMCS module, we are releasing a full-blown API this month that will basically allow you to do anything you do via the console, and that should allow you to create the WHMCS module.

                        • OVH servers in Cloudways

                          OVH Cloud VPS servers are cheap, with a high traffic limit, built-in anti DDOS and are able to use IPs from some European countries.

                              • Backup (costs): more transparency desirable and possibility to disable the backup service

                                1) Backups of server is a payed service. Totally fair, but it is not noted anywhere inside the platform portal. You have to dig like 3 articles deep to find out the actual costs for backup storage. It would be nice if in the server settings this was more transparent communicated.

                                2) Once you have multiple servers it is nearly impossible to find out what is actually charged per month for backup storage costs and what is droplet cost. Some reporting on this would be helpfull.

                                3) And last but not least, I think backup should be optional. I can…

                                    Can any of the supporters please give some scope on what you would like to see implemented when it comes to supporting support?

                                    • Do you want to be able to launch containers, let Cloudways deploy your preferred app on top of a container (i.e. wordpress) and manage it like you do with other apps in normal virtual machines on Digital Ocean or Vultr?
                                    • Or you want to be able to deploy your own docker images with your application on top of infrastructure (be it a VMs, a physical host …) that we make available to you?
                                    • Or something else?

                                    It will help set our mind related to this. We are discussing options internally, one being adding a container (over physical hardware) infrastructure provider over which you could deploy/manage your applications like done now.

                                        While we don’t yet offer Mautic as a separate application on our Platform, Mautic is at present fully compatible with our Platform.

                                        Mautic can be easily installed manually on any PHP Stack application on Cloudways. All that is needed to be done is to download and unzip the Mautic application inside the public_html directory of a stock PHP application, and to run its installer from the web (accessing the application URL the first time will automatically start the installer). There is a possibility that the installer may complain about not having the PHP variable “always_populate_raw_post_data” defined to “-1” value. If that happens, then that can be easily handled by defining “php_admin_value[always_populate_raw_post_data] = -1” under Application Settings > PHP Settings and restarting PHP FPM from Manage Services. Afterwards, the installer will proceed and complete successfully.

                                        Furthermore, any required crons for Mautic can be set up through Cron Job Management interface on…

                                            After analysing feasibility we have decided to drop this option by now. We are not experts in node.js, there are far too many full-stacks to be able to focus on one and the changes/efforts that we would need to do to adapt our platform are too big compared to the limited market we currently have for node.js.

                                            That said, surely it is something that we may reconsider in the future.

                                            Thanks to all for your feedback.
