      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.

      Nodejs and NPM packages are now available on Cloudways servers as default.
      This should allow you run services such as bower, gulp etc.

        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.

        Our dev team can help anyone trying to make it happen.

          The new console (already in private beta for some 500 customers and to be in public beta from next week) already includes this (no server access option) along many more fine grained privileges that will be possible to set.

          We are not going to implement it on old console as it should be out of the way in short time.

          There is no ETA for removing old console. As said, hopefully from next week new one will be in public beta and anyone can choose to use it any or all time. If things go well, we will set as default new console and allow customers to switch to all for a period long enough for every one to be comfortable with new one. What we are not going to do is to implement any new feature on old console when new one is the default, so this should give reason to people for a reasonably quick transition.

              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.

                  As most already know, this is doable already via:
                  https://support.cloudways.com/how-do-i-provide-more-than-one-database-for-my-application/

                  We may consider a cleaner / more direct idea of doing it in the future.

                  Take a look at:
                  https://support.cloudways.com/entries/96119563-How-do-I-provide-more-than-one-database-for-my-application-

                  This is the solution that we have in place by now (not extremely neat but it works).

                    Thanks Paul. Would a docker image suit the same needs?. Assume so. We are leaning towards it for the exact same problem you mention.

                      Hi Paul,

                      Understand your problem but don’t think we are big enough to put the kind of pressure needed for this. Currently they only offer mailboxes in US and, for what we know, have no plans to support mailboxes in EU.

                      In any case, we have raised this already with our Rackspace manager and will add the feature as soon as they have it available.

                        Can you clarify your usage case?. Are you using any SMTP add-on?. In general the FROM address can be controlled from the application / application plugin that you are using for outgoing email.

                          Thanks for your feedback Jaime. With the new console, to be released beginning of April. member area is merged with console, so there will be no need for a link between the two.

                            David, we do not have any plans regarding this for the near future. We have not fully declined this idea due to number of people backing it but it doesn't enter our roadmap as we have many other priorities to meet before being able even to consider it.

                            Hi all,

                            We don't have plans for now to white-label the whole platform. We want to focus in improving it.

                            David as for the problem you have with cloudwaysapps subdomain, you could easily use your own subdomain:

                            * Deploy and app on Cloudways. It will get a cloudwaysapps.com subdomain i.e. app1.cloudwaysapps.com.
                            * Create a CNAME in one of your own domains to the cloudwaysapps subdomain i.e.
                            app1.davidowndomain.com CNAME app1.cloudwaysapps.com.
                            * Tell your customer to point his/her site to the app1.davidowndomain.com i.e.
                            happy.customerdomain.com CNAME app1.davidowndomain.com

                            This way you don't have to disclose Cloudways subdomain to your customer.

                            We know this is not a perfect solution, but a solution for your customization needs at the moment.

                            I want to be able to offer hosting to my customers in a way that they don't know it is being hosted by cloudways (so cloudways brand must not be visible in FQDN of server nor anywhere in the file-system structure).

                                  Erik, think that this will be a too specific case but let's see what other people say. We have never had this request before.

                                    Graziano, you have the master credentials at the server tab level cause they give access to all apps in that server. You don’t need to create another account for yourself. Master credentials have SSH and SFTP access to all apps already.

                                    Let me know if I am missing something.

                                      As for turn logs off, there is no option by now and don't think we will be adding. When it comes to deleting, you can already do it (logs are saved in /logs folder) just above the public_html level.

                                        Trevor, can you further develop this?. With master credentials, you should be able to git pull / push / clone … at will from the server.

                                        If you can provide specific issue and steps to reproduce it will be very helpful to assess what we can do.

                                          Hello Stef:

                                          Can you please help us by providing more details about what it is that is getting in your way of setting up queue workers for Laravel? We've tried several different tests on our Laravel stack and not found any issues. Perhaps we are missing something in particular that you may be trying, and would love to figure it out and a provide a solution.

                                          Thanks.

                                          Cloudways Team

                                            Michael, we definitely allow SFTP access https://support.cloudways.com/how-to-connect-to-your-application-using-sftp/.

                                            About database access, it can only be done via SSH with the master credentials (https://support.cloudways.com/how-to-manage-your-databases-using-mysql-workbench/). For security reasons, we can't leave the mysql port open to the world.
