How Should an Ideal "Deploy PHP via GitHub Actions" Hosting Service Look Like?

Hi everyone,

I'm Robert, Product Owner at IONOS. We recently launched a hosting tool called Deploy Now, that allows users to deploy static sites via GitHub Actions. We would like to move on to PHP in the next step. Thus, my question:

How should a "Deploy PHP via GitHub Actions" hosting product look like, so that you would use and love it? What do you consider important features? What annoys you when using other hosting services?

We've already put together a first Alpha. If you would like to join, you can send me a mail with your GitHub name to info@deploynow.dev.

This is a pretty broad question so I'm not sure where to start. I've used GitHub Actions to deploy a Symfony application on a shared hosting service. As I did it with the help of Deployer, I had a pretty good control of each step of the process, from building static assets to exposing public resources. What I may want to improve my experience is a neater interface to review the different stages.
