  1. Notification when Elastic Mail quota is reached.

    My Elastic Mail stopped working and apparently I hit my quota. Since there was no notification - my clients lost $???? worth of new business leads. You should allow us to view the email logs and notify us if we hit our quota.

  2. UI for Excluding Images from Nginx vhost to Support webp .htaccess redirect rules

    When using a WordPress plugin like WebP Express (https://wordpress.org/plugins/webp-express/) or ewww.io, they are using an htaccess rule to redirect browsers that support webp images to the corresponding webp image files. This however does not work out of the box on Cloudways due to Cloudways' Nginx vhost.

    Currently, I need to contact Cloudways for each application I want to add support for webp images to exclude images from the Nginx vhost. After that, the htaccess rules work correctly. This is also described by ewww: https://docs.ewww.io/article/16-ewww-io-and-webp-images

    Can you please give us control of excluding images from the Nginx vhost ourselves?…

  3. The ability to have multiple SSL certificates on ONE server instance

    I would like to see the ability to have multiple SSL certificates on ONE server instance. Right now you have to create another server instance, with its additional costs.

  4. Modern new user interface - Click&Go

    Some plans to do better interface of your panel ? I know that its not so critical than functions, but still interface need to follow great function :)
    If you check your partners DigitalOcean or now even new beta SendGrid panel it looks nice, clean and simple.

    This panel looks little bit oldies for that kind of quality technology what you offers. I think your quality service deserve also quality user interface.

    My view is, that ''member area'' looks nice and it would be much better if also panel looks similar way.

    I understand that you use many external systems…

    So, a bit later than expected but our new console & website are here!. Console, while keeping the simplicity and usability of previous one, is now much nicer and modern (fully developed using Google Material-design guidelines).

    You have a link to test it inside the old console. After receiving feedback and doing the necessary improvements will set it as default.

    You can leave your feedback through a survey accessible inside the new console.

  7. Staging - add ability to ignore certain files

    Thanks for adding the new staging feature, this is great!

    During my testing I discovered that my staging .htaccess file was pushed to live and the result was a 500 error on live. I need to use a slightly different .htaccess file on staging, because I force the www version on live. I couldn't access staging with this rule. So the differences in .htaccess rules caused the error.

    It would great if you could add a way to ignore certain files, similar to gitignore.

  8. Use Let's Encrypt certificate for Cloudways database manager (8082 port) instead of a self signed cert

    Since we all can use Let's Encrypt for free (basic needs), why don't you automatically setup LE cert for database manager rather than using self signed cert which gives browser warnings.

  10. Enable ElasticSearch Plugins

    It would be a HUGE improvement for Elasticsearch if we could install/enable following plugins:

    • analysis-phonetic
    • analysis-icu

    Is there a specific reason why these would not be allowed to have? I see no harm in adding them. For instance, it would enable Magento users to add elasticsuite.

  12. Automatic Scaling

    Would be nice if we had an auto scaling feature where the server would automatically upgrade to the next level in the event a site is posted on a news site or all of a sudden got a rush of traffic.

    Example the server load is 85% the system knows to upgrade. The downtime for an upgrade on Amazon is about 5-10 mins. That's better than having your site down for an hour because the server is overloaded.

    Kyup is now live from Cloudways. Automated scaling up is available. Scaling down is not automated by now, but we are working with Kyup to make it a reality asap.

  16. Add Search bar to the new Cloudways dashboard

    The new dashboard/interface for Cloudways looks great, but you guys REALLY need to put the search bar back at the top for quickly finding apps and servers. I have too many to simply click through and find them. Until this is added, I'll have to stick with the classic interface.

  19. Push and Pull Individual Tables and Folders between staging and live environment

    Hello team, pushing and pulling individual tables and folders between staging and the live environment is better compared to transferring the entire database or files. Because in Woocommerce, pushing the database might lead to loss of orders made in between.
