  1. Improve WordPress Staging: Selective Database Sync

    The actual staging feature was a big step forward to deal with business related WordPress sites.

    But for now only the entire database could be pushed/pulled between staging <> live environment.

    For more complex WordPress sites with WooCommerce or membership systems the actual staging feature is not enough. While in staging mode the live site changes permantly and new orders/users are created. When pushing back the entire datebase all changes would be overwritten!

    A selective database sync (select which tables should be copied) would really improve the staging feature. With that in place Cloudways would be a very good host…

  3. start to host Vultr's new High Frequency Compute Packages

    The new High Frequency Compute packages from Vultr are a huge improvement over their previous packages at a tiny increase in cost.

    Benchmarks of 2413 Geekbench ($5) vs 4883 Geekbench ($6), 25GB vs 32GB storage, high clock CPU's and NVMe Local Storage for just an extra dollar!

    Having to use a management solution to host these packages such as runcloud, serverpilot etc is an extra hassle for the average consumer and I have no doubt this will offer a huge surge of customers who are willing to pay for the convenience!

    Many thanks :)

  4. Wait time for support should be added

    I prefer to wait for customer support rep that will answer my questions quickly than to not wait and have a support rep answer my questions slowly over many hours. Sure it looks good that customer support can be there right away as a selling point, but you'll have unsatisfied customers who have to wait for answers when they are chatting with support. I'd rather see an actual wait time and get a support rep who can answer me quickly as to not waste my time! So I'm suggesting that wait time be added for chat with support.

  5. White Label Domain

    For agencys, it would be great for us to be able to globally white label the URL

    For example,
    from:
    wordpress-000000-000000.cloudwaysapps.com

    to:
    000000-000000.mydomain.com

  6. ability to exclude certain files/folders on staging > live push

    This would give the ability to exclude certain staging related configuration files or logs, etc. Would be very helpful for a lot of users I think. If you agree vote up!

  7. enforce https

    Please add a feature to the Cloudways dashboard to easily force HTTPS. It's not hard to add a rewrite rule to .htaccess but many platforms such as Kinsta and SiteGround have easy switch for this.

  8. Backup Process Improvement

    Hello Team,

    As of now there's only one full backup / restore option (Server Management > Backups > Take Backup Now)

    Can you please provide some option where the user can take backup as per their requirement, Sometime developer just want to take a backup of the database or hosting files not both all the time.

    If you're providing some option where the user can take backup/restore accordingly as of now if we're taking full backup and restoring the full backup it's super time consuming for the bigger websites while they just want to take database backup.

  9. Cloudways should have a control panel with file manager . file updates should not be limited to FTPs or SFTPs

    FTPs are very slow .it is more convenient to have a file manager which most hosting platforms do. There we can upload large zipped files with convenience.

  10. WP CLI Upgrade to latest version

    The version of WP CLI is very far behind on WordPress deployments. The version that is being deployed is 0.24.1 while the latest is 2.3.0.

    Currently, we are unable to upgrade it because root access is not provided and the /usr/local/bin/wp file cannot be edited.

    If this cannot be done, a better solution would be to grant access to allow editing of .bashrc file so we can map our own custom wp-cli file instead of using the default one.

  11. Cloudways please document your security practices

    I would like to suggest that Cloudways publishes an article or other document that describes how Cloudways maintains, patches, updates servers and secures them.

    The intent is not to disclose details that puts security at risk but instead demonstrates the value Cloudways is providing in the area of helping its customers maintain a secure server and application environment.

    Information should include frequency of update / patch deployment, frequency of security scans for malware / unauthorized access, firewall ports and services that are open especially those for inbound traffic from the Internet, intrusion protection mechanisms, transparency reports for government information requests…

    This is indeed a good suggestion. We at Cloudways believe in being transparent to our users in all operational areas. We have added this idea to our Product Improvement Ideas list, and information about security would be available on the Cloudways Platform in the coming days.

  12. Force SSL

    It would be nice if we could have a Force SSL option from the control panel for wordpress. Then you would not have to install a ssl plugin or add rules to HTACCESS

  13. Limit application to disk space

    The disk space reporting is very helpful. It would be even more helpful to limit application to a specified disk space.

  14. LiteSpeed urgently required.

    Given that Digital Ocean, Vultr and others are well able to offer LiteSpeed or OpenLiteSpeed we urgently need the facility to provide LiteSpeed Acceleration for WordPress and other comaptible applications. Integrating the same with Breeze or Adding in the LiteSpeed Plugin would make a huge difference and keep Cloudways at the cutting edge where it should be.

  16. Redirect module in cloudways

    Would be great with a redirect module manager in cloudways just as kinsta to saftely handle redirects directly into the nginx and server. Instead fo messing with htaccess which can be reset by plugins etc. Safe way of adding redirects to the server:

    https://kinsta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/add-redirect-rule.png

    And make it possible to tag and categorize them and specify if only live domain, both or only staging. The module should work on application level and not server level. Since users might use more than one application on the same server (not recommended) but some do.

    Please cloudways this would be a great feature.

  18. Wordpress Manager

    I am well aware of apps like InfiniteWP and ManageWP. The best thing about them is the bulk core and plugin update management. However, it sucks to have ANOTHER service to add and manage to your websites.

    It would be AWESOME if CloudWays began to build some of these features into the control panel. It makes the most sense to have them in one place.

    CloudWays, have you considered building any features like this?

  20. Add local font files to nginx config (leverage browser caching)

    Actually only the following files are served from nginx with proper HTTP headers for browser caching and character sets.

    html|htm|jpg|jpeg|gif|png|ico|css|zip|tgz|gz|bz2|pdf|odt|txt|tar|bmp|rtf|js|swf|avi|mp4|mp3|ogg|flv|svg

    Please a local font files with the following extensions too:

    eot/ttf/woff/woff2
