Preserving IP address when cloning server - making scaling down hassle-free
Scaling up is easy.
Scaling down (with Vultr, DigitalOcean or Linode) requires to clone a server.
When cloning, server gets new IP address - this causes a lot of hassle with application integration or DNS configuration.
It would be great to make scaling down hassle-free, so that after cloning server could have the same IP as previous server.

This is a limitation of the server provider, well at least Digital Ocean that I know of. You can't scale down on Digital Ocean without having to spin up a new droplet (which results in a new IP) so I can see Cloudway's limited ability to address this, but you're right that it would be nice to not have to update records for all domains.
