I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

    • FTP Database Restore

      It would be nice if I could FTP a .bak file to my webroot or /data/ folder and do a restore on the database from that location.

      FTP is better at session management for large transfers than HTTP is and this will avoid customer timeout issues restoring databases.

            • Do not block sites

              Do not block a site directly when it goes out of limits. That is irresponsible. Instead, let the user select what should happen when a site goes out or limits. I want my site to auto-upgrade and if there is a problem that caused it to go out of limits, I can correct it and downgrade later. Other users that has less critical sites (are there any?) can choose to have the site blocked instead. Most fair would be to send out a warning though, and block after 12 hours or something. I hope you listen.

              • Allow the option for wildcard records in the Domain DNS.

                Currently if one wants a subdomain, you have to create a new "Domain' from the Domains panel. It would be better to allow wildcard A records so that subdomains don't have to be explicitly created in DNS.

                      We have officially started this project and are looking to have a Europe location as well as an additional US locations within the next 4 months or less.

                    • allow for renames and copies

                      It would be great to allow you to rename a cloud site. It would also be great to make a copy of an existing site into a new (or existing) site. For example to make a QA/test link from an existing production site, or be able to go the other way as needed as well.

                      • For paying customers, include a free email account domain for private mail.

                        I have two paid accounts with you and now I want to move a small private web site to you as well. I wanted this one as a free plan but I need email too. It would be great if you could provide one free email domain to use with private mail, for paying customers.

                                    I have test suites and would like the build process to include these as part of the standard build process.

                                    Email \ other notifications on build & test failures would be needed too as well as only making a build live if all tests have passed.

                                    Some pretty badges would be nice as well, liek we see in NPM, Travis CI etc.

                                        I think ftp logins are a fundamental part of any web hosting plan. One should be allowed create for example, read-only logins to specific folders etc.
