I suggest you ...

Allow Custom Images

Allow users to upload ISO's of Linux installations they would like to use. For instance, I was hoping to install Slackware 14; if users could upload their own ISOs you wouldn't have to keep adding distros as they wanted them.

        Only reason why I'm not using DO yet...

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        I also need this feature as well.

        I want to run IPCop, in VPS as my first Firewall.

        Gentoo++, ¿why is not ready yet?

      • Axel FontaineAxel Fontaine commented  · 

        What is really needed here is not custom ISOs, but the ability to import custom disk images in either RAW or VMDK format

        ISO for freepbx i have a small PBX that i need running.

        People moving to Vultr because it gives more. People don't realize the time and money it costs to bring new features.

        In my opinion, a custom ISO would be great. But there's usually the trouble of having to configure the networking yourself.

        openbsd should be added considering the new features in the upcoming 5.7 release and that its minimalistic footprint is perfect for hosting pf and liber

        Indeed, this would be a great feature, I look forward to DO's response...

        +3. I have a need for this now. I am not a big customer -- I only have two VPS-es currently. I have been using DO for quite a while now and would rather not leave them but unless we can have custom images soon, I may have to begin looking at what other providers are offering.

        https://twitter.com/digitalocean/status/176338623053045760 Where is this feature? Why on earth is DigitalOcean completely stalling on anything having to do with custom uploading/downloading of images? It's really scary that people have been asking for this so long and there hasn't been so much of a peep from them. What's the point of uservoice if you don't talk to your customers?

        want this ;-)

        It is a very very useful feature!
