Your feedback drives our design process. Your votes count! Let us know what you want to see from the DigitalOcean cloud.

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 vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Support OpenBSD

    I was happy to see that today a FreeBSD droplet was added, but I'm more interested in OpenBSD than FreeBSD.

    • S3 / Object Storage alternative

      As title says - it would be great if you would offer Amazon S3 storage alternative in same datacenters where we are hosting main sites.

      • Snappy Ubuntu Droplet Option

        http://ubuntu.com/snappy

        This is the new Ubuntu cloud offering, and it would be nice to have this as a droplet option.

          • Datacenter in Japan.

            Singapore location is great and works well. But for HA applications it would be nice to have another Asia datacenter...

            • Add Ultimate Edition Linux

              I am the creator / leading developer and CEO of Ultimate Edition Linux http://ultimateedition.info/, 2 of our droplets are currently running it.:

              http://ultimateedition.info/webpagedoesnotexist.html

              I have been developing a "minimal server" and "server" based editions. I am also developing software to automate the entire build process:

              http://os-builder.com/

              I could fully automate it to run on a droplet and let the user choose build options. Apache, mysql etc. and build their custom O/S. Feedback would be greatly appriciated.

              TheeMahn,

              • Improve customer experience during DDOS attacks

                Currently if you get a DDOS attack your server loses all internet facing networking ability, effectively cutting off your access to the internet on your droplet. Other providers provide more direct protection rather than just shutting your net down. Such as OVH's technology and approach detailed here: http://www.ovh.com/us/anti-ddos/ I would prefer digital ocean over any other provider based on my experiences, but the DDOS issue is the last remaining concern. If other providers are providing protection to customers rather than just cutting their customers internet, then I believe with all the money digital ocean has they should be able to…

                  We can resize our droplet by just shutting down it , but it will more exiting if we can resize our droplet without shutting down.

                  • Keep Arch Linux on DigitalOcean

                    Hi all,

                    I really love Arch Linux so much, but DO is trying to move that out. I hope that you guys can try to vote for the fantastic distro to keep it on DO.

                    The following is the letter that I just wrote to the support ticket.
                    ----

                    I'm very surprised about the maintainability of Arch Linux. Personally, I'm a heavy user of Arch, I do love the distro. Arch Linux is a contemporary minimalist Linux distribution. It provides a very clean, lightweight distribution of the Linux operating system.

                    While I was trying to launch another Arch server on…

                        It would be great to have a DC here in Chile. The economy and government is stable.

                        Also, Google is already building a DC here! https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/quilicura/

                          • Offer EV SSL Certificates via API and DigitalOcean Cloud

                            It would be awesome if DigitalOcean customers could roll out EV SSL (single, multiple domain and wildcard) certificates from the API and DigitalOcean Cloud panel. Too many people do not use SSL on their servers because of the cost and complexity of issuing SSL certificates. Being DigitalOcean is great at making things affordable, it would place SSL into the hands of all DigitalOcean customers. Additionally, it would compliment the increasing number of DigitalOcean community tutorials that require SSL certificates.

                              Hellom

                              I just started with using SSH Keys.
                              When i create a Server with SSH Key everything works fine, but i noticed that "PermitRootLogin yes" doesnt change to "PermitRootLogin without-password" so you can only login with a working SSH Key.
                              Is it possible to make a checkbox for this when you start a server?

                              • Bring back the Critical option in support tickets

                                I have noticed that the critical option has recently been removed from the support ticket process. If you take a look at status.digitalocean.com you will see that there are several service affecting issues per month.

                                I would appreciate the ability to log a ticket as critical. I know that people abuse this for a quick response, but you could easily implement an "abuse it once and lose it" policy.

                                  • Display the SSH ID of a droplet on the droplet's admin web page.

                                    Display the SSH ID of a droplet on its admin web page so that the ID
                                    can be manually confirmed when ssh-ing in to the droplet for the
                                    first time.

                                    Having to accept a droplet's ID the first time one connects to the
                                    droplet without confirming it leaves the whole droplet-creation
                                    procedure open to a man-in-the-middle attack. This security hole
                                    can be plugged by displaying a droplet's ssh ID on its page inside
                                    the DigitalOcean website and then encouraging DigitalOcean users
                                    to check the ID when they ssh in to the droplet for the first time.
