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.

  2. Allow users of any paid plan to create and administer FTP logins

    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.

  3. 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.

  15. FTP pull site feature

    Add a feature to pull an existing site by FTP to a cloud site.

    If i have a VPS host i could remote to it and use its FTP client to pull a large site of a shared hosting without having to download and reupload VIA slow ADSL connection but if i want to use gear host i have no way to avoid doing just that.

    There should be options to skip existing files and maybe to just pull files newer that a given date that would spear your bandwidth in situations where someone pulls a site to see how…

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Provide links to your help documentation from all of the account/administrative pages that are available once the user has logged in.

    When administering my web page and database, I have questions about various elements of the UI (such as what "Memory usage" really means, and why it resets after a period of time). Unfortunately, I don't see any links on screen to refer to documentation for the various pages.
