  1. Offer some type of real time two way communication support (Node.js maybe Kafka)

    I want to get into two way realtime applications as I see that as the major turn happening in the industry. To be honest, I am not sure how to get there yet, with the servers I have. Apache's got Kaftka, Nifi, and Sockets I believe. JS servers have node. I guess there are solutions with Python and C, as well. I am not sure if PHP can do it? You need to put some realtime options into the platform.

  5. Simplify the billing system

    Simplify the billing system. At the moment, the billing system is confusing and difficult to follow as you have to pre-pay funds, and then get invoiced separately. Why not just charge via credit card each month? I don't understand what the purpose of the current system is? People are signing up for Cloudways to simplify things, and you're making the billing more complicated than it needs to be.

  8. preconfigured hosting plan with affiliate code

    Would be good if there would be a way for me to preconfigure a hosting plan to then link to for my client to sign up with using my affiliate code. Basically, I want to choose the server host, the location, and the plan size. Then have a link to that which I can send to my client.

  9. Allow modifying apache configuration settings

    An option to allow the apache config file shoule be present. Things like KeepAlive and a lot more settings have a big impact on performance.

  10. Provide EU location for Rackspace emails

    It would be great if you could specify where the emails servers were located for the Rackspace add on.

    Currently I believe they store all their email accounts in Virginia, but maybe some pressure from one of their big resellers to also provide a location in EU would be beneficial.

    Some organisations would need to have their emails stored within the EU and not on US servers.

    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.

  13. Allow the public_html folder be symlinkable

    In Short allow the ability to symlink the public_html folder in order to use Ci tools such as bamboo, deploybot, envoyer to handle deployment of code.

    It would be great to run a build scp a zip of the site unzip on the server and then symlink the public_html with the current release, therefore having no downtime when deploying code.

  15. Add Scaleway as a vps provider

    Scaleways offers 4 cores, 2 GB RAM, 50GB disk space at 3 euros/month. Much more than any of the current offering. Its bandwidth has DDOS protection. I think you guys should certainly connect with scaleway!

  16. Add Aliyun.com's Server in CloudWays.com

    Do you have plan to add Aliyun.com's server in CloudWays.com, please?

    The Aliyun.com's server is the best in China but it's too hard to setup the server's envirement, so we hope you could add Aliyun.com's server if possible. After all we will run websites for Chinese so the China location server will be the best. I know it's a harder thing than other server because of China's restrict but you should try.

  19. fail2ban

    I was wondering if fail2ban was available on cloudways instances. I would love managing login attempts and throttling bots with it.
    This could even be integrated in the console at application level.

    I know I can do this with WordFence and others, but it's so much more efficient. Doing this kind of thing with WP plugins is so inefficient, it still require PHP processes.

    While not replacing a full DDoS and WAF service, this is probably still a good affordable and efficient protection and I have the feeling that is being already used for handling ssh login attempts.

  20. Automatic DNS for WordPress MU

    In cases like mine, with WordPress MU. I am building a 'Shopify' like site with WordPress MU and WooCommerce. This means my users will be creating the sites on their end.

    Through praticallity sub-domains ('customershop.ourdomain.com') are our preferred choice of URL structure.

    The way Cloudways works right now, this is only possible if I create the users site then add the sub-domain to the DNS list in Click & Go.

    Somehow making this automatic so sub-domains can be created in WP MU and be provisioned throughout the DNS would be awesome.

    (I don't know... maybe adding a nameserver service so…
