  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.
