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".

  1. 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…

    • 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 ;)

        • 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!

            • When rebuilding, let me choose the ssh keys

              Currently when rebuilding the control panel doesn't let me choose the ssh keys I want. Maybe I want to include new ones, added since the droplet was first created; maybe I want to drop keys I deem insecure.

              It's not just about convenience: having this feature would ensure that the droplet keeps the same IP.

              Cheers!

              • Add Elastix, Trixbox, Asterisk etc.. images or own iso setup

                I like to install Elastix from my cd or iso due to stability problems we don't like install on CentOS. I wish you can find solution for that as soon as possible.

                  • 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

                    • S3 / Object Storage alternative

                      As title says - it would be great if you would offer Amazon S3 storage alternative in same datacenters where we are hosting main sites.

                      • Midwest DataCenter, i.e. Madison, Wis.; Milwaukee, Wis.; Chicago, Ill., etc.

                        For those Midwestern DO customers that'd like to utilize their droplets to offer hosted solutions to their customers, minimizing latency is important.

                        • 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.

                              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.

                              • 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!

                                • 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.

                                      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.

                                        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.
