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 support and comment on it.

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

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

  1. Make your pricing competitive with Linode's

    $40/mo = 8gb ram - 4 cores (Linode)
    $40/mo = 4gb ram - 2 cores (DO)

    Sort it out... or lose market share.

    • Backups Daily instead of Weekly

      Automatic weekly backups seem a bit far between, daily backups would be better. Especially for droplets holding data.

        • Attach Block Storage Volumes to Multiple Droplets

          Great thing you've done with block storage, most impressive and very useful. In the future if one block storage volume could be seen and used by multiple Droplets, it would make life sooooo much better and easier, to share install files, user files, possible backup images and much more between droplets. Great work DigitalOceanTeam!

          • Add Minio to one-click-apps

            Minio is Open Source Object Storage, written in Go programming language. It is compatible with AWS S3 signature v4 API.

            It will be a great add on to one-click-apps for DigitalOcean users, they can host object storage content like AWS S3 in one click.

            • Add the ability to rename Storage Volumes

              We can rename droplets, but storage volumes are stuck at whatever they happened to be named on creation.

              Having the ability to change the name would be nice for organization. I have a droplet named volume-sfo2-## and keep forgetting what I am using it for.

              • Revisit new snapshot pricing structure

                "Starting October 1, 2016, we will begin charging for snapshot storage at $0.05 per gigabyte per month. This will first be reflected in the invoice posted to your account on November 1, 2016. Like other features, snapshot storage uses hourly pricing, and size is calculated from a compressed version of the snapshot—not the total disk space allocated to the Droplet."

                I see a problem with this method stemming from the way that snapshot sizes are calculated:

                "Our snapshot sizes are determined on the size of your Droplet's sparse disk image, and any data that is added to your server and…

                • Add the option to use traditional 3.5" hard drives in Volumes, at the fraction of the specified price

                  The new Block Storage option is SSD-based storage. SSDs are expensive, and $0.10/GB is kinda ridiculous.

                  I own an image host where I chose DO as my "surrogate" provider to start. As images came in, disk space was scarce, and had to move away to gain more disk space.

                  When I first heard about Block Storage, I was thrilled because I wanted to return to DO. But after hearing that the Block Storage is SSD-based and quite pricey, I had to scrap that idea.

                  It'd be nice if DO had the option to choose either the popular SSD storage @…

                    • Expose droplet metadata via https://api.digitalocean.com

                      I checked with support and confirmed that currently a droplet's metadata is only available to link-local hosts via the `http://169.254.169.254/metadata/` API. So I was encouraged to request this. Could you please expose metadata along with the other data available through the https://api.digitalocean.com API?

                      Also opened an issue for this at https://github.com/digitalocean/api-v2/issues/152

                            • Add ability to download graphs

                              I like the graphs feature which shows the bandwidth, CPU and Disk I/O for a period. I thought it would be nice if I could pass this information on to my client along with their monthly invoice.

                              A simple "Download Graph image" button next to the graphs is all I'm asking for (which downloads a jpg or png to my hard drive).

                                  • Parse.com as a 1 click app

                                    Parse.com will retire in a one year from now, so it will be nice to have 1 click app such as Parse

                                    • support granular OAuth2 scopes

                                      Currently the OAuth2 API only supports the very coarse scopes of "read" or "read write". It'd be great if we could request much more granular scopes. Really, any more granularity would be appreciated.

                                      In the ideal, there'd be a way to request OAuth2 permissions for a very specific set of actions, and the authorizing user can see the price upfront before accepting. Ex:

                                      <Application> is requesting permission to
                                      * Read account SSH keys
                                      * Read droplet information
                                      * Create a 100gb data Volume in SFO2
                                      * Create a 1gb Droplet in SFO2

                                      Total cost: $20/month.

                                      Currently, if you're using the…

                                      • Downgrade (lowered) DigitalOcean package

                                        Hello.
                                        Before use DigitalOcean, i have use Linode
                                        Linode have downgrade vps.
                                        I have ask: Why DigitalOcean can't downgrade (lowered) DigitalOcean package ????
                                        I think it is good and necessary feature.

                                        • OneClick - Phabricator

                                          Phabricator with his own git server. Good tool for code review. I'm using another plataform than DigitalOcean just because has OneClick Phabricator.
