DigitalOcean

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".
(thinking…)

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. Download snapshot and/or backup

    It would be great if we could download a snapshot. I would use snapshot to replicate development environment on my local computer, I believe many others will do the same.

    Thanks

      • Bitcoin Payment Method

        Bitcoin is a Peer to Peer digital currency with worldwide implications. Its value is changing rapidly just like oil did during its early days of adoption.

        That aside, it is a new technology and is beginning to be widely used. One of the largest internet company's in China started accepting them, WordPress accepts them and many more are starting to accept them every day.

        I don't want to see Digital Ocean lose out on this technology.

        I suggest you take a good hard look in the adoption of this new payment system.

        • Give users IPv6 /64 blocks when you roll out IPv6

          As you guys are testing IPv6 in the Singapore region, I highly recommend you give users a /64 each when IPv6 rolls out. This is proper practice, and gives users more flexibility in terms of address selection.

          • 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.

            • Brazilian DataCenter

              What is the possibility of creating data centers in Brazil or in Latin America? The latency is high here!

              But would also like to congratulate you for the quality and support!

                  • 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.

                        • Add DNSSEC support to the DNS manager

                          This would mean that you would allow us to upload our DNSSEC keys in the manager, so that your name servers can sign their responses, and prove authenticity of their responses.

                              • GEO DNS Service (visitor goes to the geographically closest droplet)

                                GEO DNS + Multiple droplets.. is more than AWESOME setup..!!

                                I'd love to see this service soon in DO, where you can create several droplets in several data centers and point your DNS zones toward these droplet.

                                Visitors from NY for example get served by NY Droplet(s), Visitors from AMS get served by AMS Droplet(s).

                                This way, you can build your own CDN within few moments, and get your websites performance-extra-charged.

                                Your Votes, comments ?!

                                    Awesome news, we’ve hired our first two engineers from Australia, one is our new Senior Network Engineer and another is a Software engineer.

                                    After we launched Singapore we spent two months analyzing the usage and also looking into how the new region improved latency for customers around that geography.

                                    Since then we’ve been looking at the next geographies to open and Australia definitely came up on that list. Given that the logistics there, at least initially, seem to be less complicated than other regions we are beginning to investigate Australia as a new region for DigitalOcean.

                                    This process usually takes a couple of months as we review datacenter location choices, internet connectivity providers, and the pricing that these vendors will provide so that we can ensure we can still operate out of this new region with the same price point that we have across the cloud today.

                                    We’ll have more…

                                  • Configurable SOA record in DNS

                                    Configurable SOA Records for DNS to change email address.

                                      • Include openSUSE as a droplet image option

                                        This is one of the most traditional Linux distributions out there, used and loved by many Linux aficionados. SUSE, it's biggest sister, is used in countless data-centers around the world, even super computers! SUSE/openSUSE have an awesome documentation, and are one of few Linux distros covered in the system administrator bible: UNIX and Linux System Administration Handbook.

                                        • Ubuntu Snappy Core 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.
