  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.

          • 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

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                    • Backups Daily instead of Weekly

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

                      • Fixes to the new Domain/DNS interface

                        1. The new Domain/DNS interface seems to have lost some valuable features. From what I recall, the old interface for a domain's DNS records had:

                        - Color codes for DNS record types (very helpful for quick looks).
                        - Grouped DNS records order with A, CNAME etc. listed first.
                        - Raw DNS record at the bottom. (There is a "Download zone" option in the domains list view, but I'd prefer to also have the raw record at the bottom, both for quick glances and copy/paste.)

                        These valuable features have disappeared since the update. DNS records for a domain are now listed…

                        • DNS subdomain delegation to a different team account/project

                          Following use case:
                          1. we have an production environment running an API at api.example.com, only some devops have access and api.example.com is defined in teamproject1
                          2. we have a staging environment in teamproject2 with more devops having access rights and the domain ist stage.api.example.com.
                          3. we manage both environments with terraform and ansible including domains.
                          4. we need a subdomain delegation for *.stage.api.example.com from teamproject1 to teamproject2

                          What could be done? Allow Subdomain delegation:

                          1. create NS Records with ns1..3.do.com in teamproject1 for stage.api.example.com
                          2. create rewquired ressource records in teamproject2 (A, MX , SRV, .....)

                          • DigitalOcean offers dollars instead of account credit or at least introduce some kind of converting system to reward their promoters.

                            DigitalOcean offers "account credit" to their promoters. What are we gonna do with the account credit? I mean there should be a proper way (dollars) to reward the promoters like most of the companies in the industry.
                            One of my affiliate accounts with DigitalOcean earns more than 400 account credits. Don't you think that it is hilarious to spend all those on just a single company?
                            My suggestion is that you should at least introduce some type of converting system like $5 account credit = 1$ if you cannot offer the commission in US dollars.

                            • 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.

                              • Support Bring Your Own IP Space

                                Currently Vultr supports the Bring your own IP Space feature: they provide either IP Address Advertisement or full (or default route) BGP. They provide the normal IPv4 and IPv6 addresses (used for peering) and also set up a BGP session from their AS to your server. This, combined with the private networking can really help. I know it's not a popular feature: it's unlikely that 99.9% of the customers will use it, but it's definitely a good-to-have. Even if it requires manual set up and is not automated.

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

                                      • Disable droplet creation notification

                                        There is many way to create droplet.

                                        It will be useful to disable mail notification for creation.

                                        We have two use cases :

                                        > Droplet is created by our action
                                        > An action automatically trigger create a droplet (for example, adding a droplet behind a load balancer because a monitoring system ask it).

                                        For the first case, it could be useful to disable email notification (as we already know that we are creating a droplet).

                                        But I think (email) notification should be the default behavior.

                                        • East Indonesia Datacenter

                                          Hello everyone,

                                          I think East Indonesia should be advanced like West Indonesia. This is because Jakarta is full of population, making the environment bad. To facilitate transmigration, Indonesian government make an action, Gerakan 1000 Startup Digital/1000 Digital Startup Action. This action, however struggling with connectivity issue. By this, the gov started the Palapa Ring project. And to remove this barrier, I think you should build datacenter (at least 2) in the East Indonesia. This is based of the theory that more far away from the datacenter, the slower speed will get. I think the East Indonesia potential to be a…
