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".

  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.

        • 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…

            • 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…

                • DataCenter in Chile

                  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.

                          • Make it a bit more clear that even powered off droplets still count towards running costs.

                            I understand the technical reasoning as to why you would charge for droplets that are turned off but I didn't know this without traversing 3 pages deep into the help section. I was going to call and complain that not only did I lose my $10 LAS credit but that I was charged $3. Granted, $3 isn't a lot and it clearly states in the FAQs that I would be charged but (knowing that know) I feel a little butt-hurt that I lost a good amount of "free" testing time.

                              DO isn't supporting any charities that we know about. Let's round up those extra pennies for charity and do some good. Personally, I like the children efforts. Maybe have a selection that people can choice from.

                              • 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.

                                    • At a specific, recurring, reliable date and time (say one day a week, or even a month) add the latest kernel to the list

                                      At the moment updating a VM kernel is touch and go. DigitalOcean's boot manager limitations mean that you can't install a kernel and reboot the machine into it. Instead you have to install a kernel (that exactly matches one available in the list) then select it from the dropdown in the admin interface. Many CentOS users update using yum update and bring all packages, including the kernel, up to the latest version.

                                      That would be manageable (for 10s of 100s of VMs) if the list was frequently updated, but it's sporadic. The support team are very helpful and will update…

                                        For different project I may want to use different credit cards, ie if someone else is paying for my hosting. Currently, you can't assign billing of a droplet to a particular card.

                                        • Job Board

                                          I am thinking it would be a good idea to have a job board where people can post jobs, or available for jobs.

                                          Nothing complicated, just a simple board would be fine. I have noticed that sometimes people will create questions where they are asking if anyone is available to do some small project.
                                          Also, there are times when I have some extra projects that I could use some help on. It would be nice to work with people already familiar with DigitalOcean, Ubuntu, Wordpress, etc.
