    Good news! Application disk usage information and graphs are now live , and we hope it delivers excellent value and simplify disk management for our users.
    https://support.cloudways.com/how-to-view-application-disk-usage/

    We understand that this feature was on the wish list of many users and the release comes a bit late than promised. The feature required extensive testing, thus requiring this long for general release.

    HTTP2 is now fully supported and available for all browsers. It was activated yesterday.

    Customers who already have HTTP2 enabled in their servers, need to disable and re-enable it to update browser support. Other customers, just need to enable it (done from Server Settings in NEW CONSOLE).

  4. Better caching plugin than W3 Total Cache

    W3 Total Cache is rarely updated and is not officially compatible with WP 4.4 as of yet. Many people are speculating that the author may have even abandoned this plugin. Issues with WP 4.4 are being reported and are not resolved. I would prefer a more stable and regularly updated caching plugin.

  5. 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.

  6. Support 'Let's Encrypt' (automatic and free SSL/TLS)

    Mid 2015 the Let's Encrypt Certificate Authority (CA) is expected to go live. It would be great if Cloudways would join this effort and offer it as a service to their customers. This CA & software will allow automatic and free (domain validated) SSL/TLS for any domain.

    For more information visit https://letsencrypt.org/

  7. Add Linode As A Hosting Provider

    I have tested Linode myself and found it better than many hosting providers and is also recommended by many websites and companies like WPEngine. As a CloudWays customer I want to suggest that it will be more better for CloudWays (for more sale) and for its customers (for better services) if you add Linode as a hosting provider as you have already added Amazon & Digital Ocean.

    Best Regards,
    Aamer

    Linode is now available on Cloudways Platform

    You can now launch a Linode cloud server on the Cloudways Platform and get a taste of the best managed cloud hosting experience at very economical prices.

  8. Add Digital Ocean Block Storage Option

    Add support for Digital Ocean's Block Storage add-on. This will allow us to not have to scale entire server for more storage space. This also allows for more options away from the more expensive AWS or Google services for more storage space.

  9. Add PHP 7

    PHP7 will land soon and smart hosting companies are already supporting it (see Siteground and a handful other competitors).

    The speed and performance gains are tremendous. Speed + performance = better website experience and for commercial sites, more revenue.

    The first hosting company to get proper staging support, php 7, easy SSL install and SNI support gets my future business. It's no longer okay for hosting companies to lag behind on PHP, holding the web back.

    PHP7 is now live. Please note that it is only available (and will continue to be) on Debian 8 servers. If you are running on an older Debian 7 server, you can migrate your application to a new Debian 8 server (where even with php 5.6 you will get better performance) and test php 7 there.

    Announcement:

    How to upgrade from php 5.6:

  10. Exclude pages or URL's from Varnish

    I would like to suggest having the option to exclude certain pages or URL's from Varnish. Most of the time Varnish is great, but in some instances it can cause issues. One particular instance right now is a very typical Wordpress + WooCommerce setup where Varnish causes the site to not save items to the cart. I did heaps of testing and it's directly a Varnish issue.

    However it would be great to keep Varnish on parts of the site where it doesn't conflict, because the performance gains are fantastic. Would be a great addition to the console.

    Cheers'

  11. ALLOW a Single Person (and their email) to be a TEAM MEMBER on MORE THAN ONE ACCOUNT

    Allow a way for a SINGLE person (and their email) to be associated as a TEAM MEMBER on more than one account.

    At the moment, a person would need to create several different emails to be be a TEAM MEMBER on more than one account.

    There should be a GENERAL ACCOUNT console (that doesn't require a hosting/server plan.... however it CAN support a purchased plan if desired) that is separate from any TEAM MEMBER access associations.
    On the console you should be able to see all of the accounts you are associated as a TEAM MEMBER on... and access them…

    Thank you for your patience.

    This feature is now live on the Platform. You will now be able to add a team member on more than one account.

    We will be happy to hear what you think of this improvement.

    This has now been completed. In Server tab, under Backup section you can now enable “Local Backups”.

    This will take, additionally to the off-site backup, a local application backup (both files and database) in the local_backup sub-folder of each application. Just one backup set (latest) will be stored there.

    You can automate downloading backups to wherever you want via SSH/SFTP.

    We are going to create KB’s and a blog post related to this new feature. Will post links here when done.

  15. Fully Support WP Rocket

    Your KB article on WP Rocket says that you don't fully support minification of JS/CSS due to Varnish caching on the server.

    It would be amazing if you guys could reach out to WP Rocket and see if this could be resolved.

  16. Offer Cloud Hosting Provider Vultr

    Vultr is now a strong competitor in the Cloud arena, and it offers better deals than DigitalOcean such as 768MB of RAM and 1TB monthly bandwidth for only $5 USD. It'll massively increase your customers by having better offers from strong competitors.

  17. Allow Supervisor installation for laravel queue workers

    As Laravel mention in its docs, to keep a queue worker deamon alive, you have to confgure supervizor.. Laravel Forge has in its default app stack supervizor installed and a UI for its config.

    Please install supervizor in laravel stack apps, Redis is great, and thank you, but we still need supervizor to keep queues deamon alive

    Queues are used for jobs, event handling, mails, notifications

  18. Transfer servers or applications between accounts

    I would love to be able to start a new server and transfer it to my client once I'm done so he would be billed for it.
    On AWS you can change the billing for a specific stack.
