  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  10. Add Memory Usage Trend on the Dashboard

    I would like to suggest adding Memory Usage to the trends on the Dashboard. Currently, the CPU usage, drive space, and bandwidth can be tracked for the last 6 hours, day, and week, but RAM usage is only an instantaneous data point. Hard to tell if you are close to the max before your site just shuts down for the rest of the hour. This would help in knowing if it's time to upgrade to a beefier plan.

  11. Add "Last Hour" as a timeframe for the Dashboard

    Add "Last Hour" as a timeframe for the Dashboard. Currently, the shortest timeframe is 6 hours. This would be good for testing your website with more CPU and memory intenstive apps.

  13. SQL Server Contained Database

    A description of the feature including its benefits can be found here:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/relational-databases/databases/contained-databases?view=sql-server-ver15

    I would like it because it allows for managing users with password login at the database level instead of at the instance level. It is a feature that can be opted into on a per database basis once the capability is enabled for the instance. It would also mean I could develop locally and then deploy the database to your servers, including users.

    My use case is having the ability to configure multiple users that can login with different permissions. A read only user, for example, or…

  14. The icon that is a search/magnifying glass icon should be changed on Team page

    The icon that is a search/magnifying glass icon should be changed on Team page. That should not be the icon to be used to Switch to underlying team account.
