  1. Low cost CloudSite for low resource websites with a custom domain

    We are thinking about introducing a low cost CloudSite, say under $2 (perhaps $1) that is limited in resources but comes with a custom domain name allowing you host small resource sites without paying for a full CloudSite resource which is $5 right now.

    The question I guess is how many of you have small low resource sites that could use this type of CloudSite?

  4. Enable GZIP Compression (Dynamic Compression)

    Hey it's pretty much impossible to optimize a site using large Javascript and CSS files (such as are common with bootstrap, jquery, etc) without the ability to compress those files. This should be a standard feature for accounts running on IIS. Thanks for getting that installed ASAP ;)

  6. New Relic integration

    To use new relic for monitoring .Net applications one needs to install the agent. Obviously, with cloud sites, users can't do that themselves. So how about making it an Addon?

  8. Allow us to use 3rd Party DNS managers

    Allow us to use 3rd Party DNS management such as Cloudflare.

    Cloudflare provide greater control over our domain names, otherwise we are limited to what you have provided which is good, but very basic.

  17. Fix Type error on https://www.gearhost.com/pricing

    Sorry. Don't see a better way to tell you guys. Type error on your pricing page. https://www.gearhost.com/pricing In the following sentence:

    If you use your CloudSite for less than 672 hours during the month, your will be billed for each hour that you used it.

    ... the second "your" in the sentence should be "you", or it should be "your account".

    I just happened to notice this and thought I would let you know.

  19. Mention date in Job Scheduler logs

    At this time the log of the job scheduler shows the time of execution, but not the date. After the update of last week, my job was no longer running, but I could not see this in the logs as there is no date shown.

    This is what is shown right now:
    12:59 Dec 2014 (UTC) Request successfully executed with HTTP code 200 in 6.1s
    12:49 Dec 2014 (UTC) Request successfully executed with HTTP code 200 in 2.2s

    So could you please format the date and time? e.g. 12:49 21 Dec 2014 (UTC)
