        We have started this project and should be available in about 3 weeks.

        We currently allow this via databases but to do this at a CloudSite level we are exploring this option to either allow only a chargeable option or allow you to export your backups to cloud based storage such as dropbox, one drive or google drive.

        Thoughts?

          We are in beta right now of this feature. It will be released in about a week.

          Yes we've officially started on this project and hoping to have something very soon. It's our top requested item so we'll get this knocked out quick.

            Interesting request. This is on the list. Let's make it happen. Would need more support on this!

              This is not planned at this time since restoring a database via the control panel is much easier and faster. To do this via FTP would require to login to your control panel, get your FTP credentials, upload your file, go back to your control panel and select the file for restore. This may be applicable to multiple GB databases but with home internet speeds well over 100mbps on average and only getting faster I don't think this really warrants the development time. I would like to see some more comments as to why customers want this feature as the control panel interface works just fine.

                You are allowed up to 100GB. Do you mean more than that?

                  Thanks Christer for the suggestion. This is being worked on. We are planning on offering a feature where you can allow us to auto scale your site for you based on limits that you set such as a budget and length of time. More details to come...

                    Renames is not possible at this time or proposed in the future however duplicating a CloudSite is technically possible. Perhaps we'll have to think about that if more people up vote this.

                      While we are not sure where this will go it is a needed feature for those pesky A records that customers need at the root if you are using an outside DNS service. Details to come.

                          This feature is planned for after the initial release of Octane. We will offer the ability to automatically scale your site based on a schedule and/or based on resources such as cpu, memory, etc.
