  1. Add DNS CAA support to the DNS manager

    I would like to see an implemention to support DNS CAA in DOs DNS controllpanel.

    DNS Certification Authority Authorization (CAA) uses the Internet's Domain Name System to specify which certificate authorities may be regarded as authoritative for a domain. This is intended to support additional cross-checking at the client end of TLS connections to attempt to prevent certificates issued by CAs other than the specified CAs from being used to spoof the identity of websites or perform man-in-the-middle attacks on them.

    If we would run a certain CA on our websites, we can specify that in our DNS settings and…

      • mark a droplet as protected, so deleting it require confirm from owners via email

        I noticed that destroying a droplet is so easy on Digital Ocean. I have to double and triple check If I'm deleting a correct droplet or not.

        I think It's a good idea that I (as a customer) could mark some of my droplets as protected droplets, so destroying them require confirming on owner's email. I mean, DO does not delete the droplet unless the owner confirms via a link sent to his email.

        I'll be happy if I see this feature on Digital Ocean.

        • Support HTTP/2 on load balancers

          Digital Ocean's new load balancers only support HTTP 1.1. The text protocol and lack of multiplexing in HTTP 1.1 means it's MUCH slower than HTTP/2.

          One of the pages on our site loads in 600ms on nginx running HTTP/2, and 1.8s on HTTP 1.1. We'd love to be able to use DO Load Balancrs but the slowdown isn't worth it.

            • Select/Add other email address for Monitoring Policies

              Currently, when you create new policy, you can only select your own email address or Connect to Slack.

              Since some or many people will have a team which they have created droplets, it would be good to include a field to add new email address or select the team email address to send the alert to, instead of only allowing the user to only choose their own email address.

              I am not sure if this feature is already planned. But i hope this can be added in. Thank you.

                • Allow users to disable Gravatar

                  I like my privacy and I'm sure most of us developers care about it too.

                  I do not use Gravatar or any avatar for that matter, therefore kindly allow us to disable Gravatar in the settings, and just create an avatar in CSS like Google does, using the initials of the user's name.

                  Thank you

                    • Allow Cloud Firewall rules to be disabled/enabled

                      I keep SSH closed when I don't need it, so it'll be convenient if there is a feature to quickly enable and disable rules instead of deleting and creating them.

                      • Add Mastodon as a One-Click Install

                        Mastodon (https://mastodon.social/about) is a fantastic new open source, decentralized, and federated social network. People can install it on their own servers, and users who are part of the community on that specific server can interact with anyone, regardless of what server they are on. You can @mention people in different networks, publicly or privately.

                        It is and incredibly important project, and will be a major step in the right direction to curb censorship, regain control of our data, and solidify free speech on the internet.

                        The convenience of having it in a One-Click Install on DigitalOcean would be…

                              • Reverse DNS for Foating IPv4 and IPv6 on DigitalOcean-supplied or Customer's Domains

                                DigitalOcean owns the IP blocks from which Floating IP addresses are allocated to droplets. It would be a benefit to the customer to automatically assign Reverse DNS records to the Floating IP addresses handed out. Mail Exchange servers, and any secure server are usually required to have Reverse DNS match Forward DNS, for security reasons.

                                • Name firewall rules

                                  I use the firewalls to block SSH from all but our employee IPs. However, those IPs change weekly, and I end up having to maintain a map and it's really confusing. I'd like to have a way to name them so I can easily update them.

                                  Different ways I've done this with traditional firewalls:
                                  • Create one SSH rule per person and name the rule
                                  • Create a named machine with an IP for each person, and add all those machines to the SSH rule

                                  Please please please let me know if this is something you can accommodate in the…

                                    • Launch 1GB VPS for $5/month.

                                      Linode and Vultr already moved into this strategy to capture low budget developers.

                                      • Allow us to enter hostnames as sources on the firewall

                                        I have a dynamic IP at home with a hostname pointed to it. When that IP changes I'd only have to update the DNS entry instead of all firewall rules, like my SSH and phpMyAdmin rules.

                                        • Integrate Let's Encrypt free SSL certificates

                                          It would be totally awesome if you could integrate Let's Encrypt SSL certificate management (installation, renewal, etc.) into the control panel, so they can be attached to load balancers or even single droplets. This would really help getting started with SSL and making the internet a safer place!
