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. 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.

      • Send emails to a specific email-adress.

        please send out the invoices via email and change this from pull to push. Even better: Let me as a admin adjust who should receive the email, in case there is a new invoice available. Right now it takes us a day for our tax-guy to collect for every service we use the invoice. thanks.

        • Include the droplet name associated with a snapshot in billing exports

          Currently snapshot rows in billing exports include the snapshot name, region and size, but not the name of the droplet they were created from. It would be very useful to have the droplet name also output in the billing exports.

          • PROXY Protocol in Load Balancer

            When using a TCP load balancer it would be still useful to know the the IP address the original address came from.

            HAProxy has a PROXY protocol which is sent to the downstream server with IP information when a new client connects before sending proxying any data.

              • Allow a user to be part of more than 10 teams.

                We prefer our clients to pay for the hosting directly so currently do the following: set up a new account per client > create a team > assign client as the biller > add ourselves as members of the team. However we have more than 10 clients and at the moment we can only be assigned to 10 teams. The work around is to use a second email address and assign another 10 to that but it gets a little messy i.e. remembering which email is assigned to which client team. Thank you!

                • allow monitoring policies to be created for all droplets (rather than having to select droplets individually)

                  Currently, when you create a policy, you need to manually select the droplets it applies to.

                  For basic policies (disk nearly full, cpu over-used) I just want them to apply to all droplets - both current ones and future ones.

                  A simple checkbox 'apply to all droplets' would make it easier to create the policy, and would mean I didn't have to remember to add future droplets to my policies whenever I create them

                  • Notify on low free space

                    When free space (at either an instance or SSD storage) becomes less than a user-specified value, the user should be notified by email that storage is low.

                      • Give option for team admin to restrict Droplet creation/resizing/destroying capabilities of a member

                        Consider I want to manage billing of clients account.
                        I can create a team for him and give him privileges to manage dns and one or more specific droplets.
                        But since billing is from my creditcard, as a team admin I must be able to restrict certain privileges of a team member given below

                        >destroy droplet

                        • last_used_at parameter for image v2 api

                          HI,

                          Currently, my team and I are creating a lot of snapshot images on our Digital Ocean accounts. We would like to be responsible and write our own clean up automation so that we aren't wasting resources unnecessarily.

                          As such, we're looking at writing automation to clean up old, unused images. However, for us to identify those images in our team, we need to be able to view the last usage date for an image, which I've dubbed as a paramter 'last_used_at' following the naming convention of other parameters in the API.

                          Would it be possible to have parameter for…

                          • On Droplets view, please include which user created the droplet. (Applies to Team feature)

                            While viewing the droplets, it would be very helpful if we could see which account or user created that particular droplet.

                                Payment details are required to create a team. Would be more practical to allow people to create teams first before anything else or sign up as a team.
                                An account usually created by an IT guy but billing handled by someone else, e.g. accounting. Who creates a new DO account doesn't supposed to know the billing details, especially the credit card details. People mostly not going to enter their private payment details (complete separation preferred).

                                • Display user ID in account header.

                                  I have my own DO account and I also manage accounts for clients.

                                  When you sign into your account there is no indication in the top header who you are or what account you are in.

                                  This was further complicated by the fact that I have a habit of naming my droplets the same thing.

                                  For example, I will often have "web-server", "git-server" and "build-server" for most client setups. So you can imaging the confusion when you log in about which account you are working on.

                                  The only way to tell is to click the cog button and see the…

                                  • Update the the distribution images.

                                    Its super annoying that everytime i spawn a new vm there are a lot of updates, these images are missing a lot of security updates and should really be updated periodically so when someone spawns a new droplet they don't have to spend 5-10 minutes waiting for it to update.

                                      Hi,

                                      Currently, our base OS images are updated periodically in order to pick up point releases a security fixes. For instance, our CentOS 7 image was updated just this week while our Ubuntu 14.04 and 12.04 images were updated last week. Though, we can definitely some room to improve both transparency around the process and the cadence.

                                      Thanks for the feedback!

                                      I was happy to see that today a FreeBSD droplet was added, but I'm more interested in OpenBSD than FreeBSD.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Duo Security

                                          i would like to have this supported as an alternative to current 2-factor authentication

                                          Duo supports Yubikeys and SMS/Phone confirmation as well
                                          LastPass already uses Duo Security as one if its 2-factor methods

                                          https://www.duosecurity.com/
