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. 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.

    • Traffic Stats

      When we have now a traffic limit and must pay for over traffic we really need traffic stats so we can see what we have to pay when traffic is empty and pay traffic begin ;)

      • 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.

          • 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.

            • Create a mobile optimized control panel or iPhone/Android app

              One thing i love about Linode and Rackspace is that i can always quickly check my server stats from my mobile phone. I would love to have an app that shows me (in descending order of importance):

              * List of Droplets with all meta info (name, image, size, IP address, Running or not ...)
              * Buttons for:
              * Reboot
              * Resize
              * Snapshot
              * Backup
              * Create from scratch/ from image
              * Bandwidth usage for the current month
              * Charges for current month / account balance
              * Digital Ocean stats (is everything in the network ok?)

              • 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

                • Choose your own backup interval

                  At the moment automatic backups are taken 'every few days' (I can't find how many days exactly, but I know it's way too many).

                  I was having the following idea:
                  - Users pay 1$ per month to enable automatic backups
                  - Depending on their plan, they have a few slots available (you'll unlock additional slots by upgrading to a better plan)
                  - You can choose your own interval (twice a day, once a day, once a week)
                  - If you run out of slots, the oldest backup will be destroyed automatically to make space for a new backup

                  This way…

                  • 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

                    • Reserve IP Addresses / Make sure we can keep an IP if we recreate a droplet.

                      When destroying a droplet there's a 99% chance that you will get your IP back. If someone creates a droplet while destroying/creating a new one and steals your IP, it's a pain, even if the chances are <1%.

                      This 1% is too much for some. An IP is an important number, your server might not be able to send emails if the last IP's user was sending spam through it.

                      Software licenses are also tied to IP sometimes.

                      When I want to rebuild a server (or resize: disk size) I want to make sure that I get my IP back.

                      • 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…

                            • Implement auto-scaling of resources

                              Use case:

                              I have a $10/month VPS and one of my blog posts gets posted to Hacker News and Slashdot. My server sees a huge spike in traffic. This is okay because Digital Ocean has automatic resource scaling and they will bump me to a higher plan (with more ram, cpu, etc) for as long as my server needs the extra resources to handle the requests. When my blog post dies down, I return to my $10/month plan and I get charged based on the amount of hours I needed to use the larger plan.

                                • Team accounts with fine grain control

                                  Continuing from http://digitalocean.uservoice.com/forums/136585-digitalocean/suggestions/3981054-allow-team-accounts, that is great for multiple developers.

                                  However, I would like to set a billing contact from our finance department who is not a developer and I don't want to give access to anything but billing.

                                  As well as that, I am sure there are other use cases were a team lead might want to do one of the following:
                                  - restrict access to certain servers to certain users
                                  - or have an infrastructure employee restrict dev servers to developers, staging servers to devs and testers, and then prod/live to minority of devs, for example

                                  Sum up: …

                                        • Ability to Copy & Paste on the VNC console

                                          Being able to copy directly to the console instead of having to type in the commands.
