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.

  1. 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.

      • I know they cost a fortune, but I would love an Australian server!

        Because most of the traffic going to my server would be Australia I would love it if you added one, I wouldn't mind paying extra for it either!

          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…

        • Nordic/Scandinavian DataCenter

          What is the possibility to open a datacenter in say... Sweden? Or any of the other Scandinavian countries. Prices here are high because there isn't that much competition... With you in the picture although...!
          I've heard so much good about you, but the whole thing with the 1GB VPS not beeing available in Amsterdam, well, then I have no other EU option :(

          Anyway, have a nice day!

            • 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.

              • 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!

                • Attach invoice PDF with 1st of month email notification...

                  Please attach the invoice PDF to the 1st of the month email notification. Or make it a settings options for users to have this. It would just make accounts filing easier as I'd have a copy of the invoice without having to log in to my account and download each an every invoice. Cheers!

                  • 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.

                    • Allow DNS records to be reordered

                      Currently the DNS editor doesn't provide any means of reordering the records. There was a feature request to sort the records by name instead of creation date but it was declined. It would be great if records could be reordered for organizational purposes. As it stands now, I have to read through the long list until I find the record I wish to edit.

                      • add slave DNS to the DNS manager

                        The new DNS manager looks nice, but one feature that's missing is the ability to have the Digital Ocean servers serve as slave DNS servers performing zone transfers (AXFR/IXFR) from our droplets. Other hosts provide this, which reduces the DNS load on droplets.

                            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.

                                Project Atomic is backed by RedHat enterprise linux and the Openshift cloud stack.

                                  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.

                                    • Allow unique credit cards per droplet

                                      For different project I may want to use different credit cards, ie if someone else is paying for my hosting. Currently, you can't assign billing of a droplet to a particular card.

                                        Hi Jonathan,

                                        Last week we released a few new features for Teams that might help.

                                        You can now be a part of up to 10 teams with each having its own invoices and billing options. We also added a new Billing role for teams that does not have permission to access Droplets, but can manage billing and payments.

                                        Here’s a link to the announcement:
                                        https://www.digitalocean.com/company/blog/teams-work-better-together/

                                        And to the tutorial:
                                        https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-teams-on-digitalocean

                                        We hope this helps.

                                        Thanks for the great feedback!

                                        It'd be really nice to be able to share images (i.e. snapshots that we've taken) with other accounts by "inviting" them, or simply entering in their DigitalOcean e-mail address, which would then send them an e-mail letting them know (or perhaps a special DO pin #). This would especially be useful if you're working with a developer/administrator or even a business partner and you want to share a setup/configuration.

                                        As an example, we just configured a rather time consuming LNVMP stack (CentOS, NGINX, Varnish, MySQL, PHP-FPM) and to prevent us from having to continually do the exact same setup on…

                                          More than one ip for a VM would be great. A small subnet maybe ..
