    • Add support for Let's Encrypt wildcards certificates for Load Balancers

      Thank you for adding support for HTTP/2 for load balancers and adding Let's Encrypt for specific domains. Thats huge. If you can add wildcard certificate support, that would be amazing.

      Thank you!

      • Scale transfer rates with resizing

        I wish transfer rates would increase beyond 1tb when opting for a more expensive plan,i think 1tb should be for the most inexpensive droplet and increase from that point

          I double checked this feature with the team and it should work correctly out of the gate. The one thing we are missing is showing the transfer numbers on the Droplet size tables, and we are going to fix that. We will also add a note on the FAQ, just to make it clearer. I will close this item when we do both of this actions.

          In summary, feel free to resize droplets and your bandwidth billing quota will be pro-rated accordingly.

          Thanks for sending the question.

        • Allow access to bandwith usage via API

          So it would be great if you can use an API call to your droplet to see how much bandwidth you have left, how much you have used, what your limit is etc.... REST Full API call would be great.

            Thanks for the feedback, we agree it would be great to provide bandwidth info over the API. We are working to add it and we will also add per droplet bandwidth info on the dashboard.

          • Allow GRE packets through the firewall

            Currently the DO firewall filters IP Protocol 47 (GRE) packets, which interferes with pptp vpn links. If GRE packets were added to the list, along with ICMP, IPv4 and IPv6, this would allow the use of PPTP VPNs (see e.g. https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-setup-your-own-vpn-with-pptp) and other VPNs that utilize GRE packets, such as IPSec

            • Extend Monitoring to allow monitoring of a particular URL

              It would be nice if the Monitoring tool could be extended to monitor a particular URL on a droplet, and alert if you get anything else than a 2xx status. That way, we can build https://out.app.running.in.a.droplet/status url that monitors our app, and get notifications if the site is down / in error

                Hi Frank,
                Thanks for the suggestion, we are working on defining the details for this feature. Please reach out to me if you have any questions or suggestions about this use-case.

              • Show firewalls on the Droplets page

                Firewalls are great, but when you have a large number of droplets, it's difficult to keep track of which droplets have been added to which firewall and if new droplets have not been added or added to a firewall.

                I want to propose adding a column on the droplets page with a firewall icon. It should have low opacity or grey if it has not been assigned to any firewalls and visible if it has been. Hovering of the icon will show which firewalls the droplet is a part of and optionally allow you to add it to other firewalls.

                • allow Floating IPs to point to load balancers

                  This would allow me to scale an app seamlessly in real time, instead of needing to carefully time it against DNS cache latency.

                  After playing around with the new Load Balancers for a bit, It seems like an obvious extension. By the way, I'm really pleased with the feature. It seems very polished.

                  • Billing Report enhancements - trends and charts

                    The billing section of the DO web interface is pretty spartan. Yes, we can get a line-by-line report of items being billed and this is OK. It'd be very helpful if there were some quick-to-reference charts - like a pie chart with current breakdown of items being billed - at least at the granularity of classes of items (droplets, droplet backups, snapshots, load balancers, etc.).

                    It would also be helpful to see a chart of existing amount billed and expected monthly total should existing billed items continue through the end of the billing cycle.

                    A decent reference point would be…

                    • IPv6 for load balancers

                      So far, load balancers only get an IPv4 and no IPv6.

                      In practice, this means that load balancers cannot be used if you want to provide IPv6 connectivity.

                      I would love to use this feature, but only if IPv6 was made available.

                          • Improve invoices

                            I'm sure having PDF invoices is sufficient for many users, but it would be great to have other ways to view the data; either by being able to export to an XLS so a user can manipulate on their own, or presenting it in a data table.

                            This would mitigate the need for creating separate "teams" who's only purpose is to generate separate bills, when the users/settings/resources are the same.

                                I have a cloud config file that I use as a starting point for all the servers that I deploy. I'd like to store that in your control panel so that other people in my organization can use it when they deploy their servers. Once uploaded, a list of available cloud configs would then appear on the "Create Droplet" page so that it can be selected and used -- much like the SSH keys feature.

                                • Switch to Per Minute Billing

                                  Sometimes you need to spin up a couple servers to handle the load for about 20-40 minutes. It is understandable that you are billed to the next hour, but I thought I'd throw this out there.

                                  Several other cloud providers, primarily "Google Cloud," is now providing per minute billing. With competitive pricing, this is somewhat compelling.

                                  My request is that digital ocean re-evaluates whether or not they would like to support this billing feature. I would even understand if droplets cost slightly more if you are not enabled on hourly billing.

                                  Thank you for your time.

                                  • Please provide a way to bulk delete droplets from the DO Control Panel

                                    When dealing with several droplets, it would be nice to be able to delete them all at once via the Control Panel. I know we can do this now from the API, but would be convenient to select droplets from the UI and choose "destroy". maybe a checkbox next to each droplet? a checkbox to "select all" ?

                                      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 ;)

                                        We would like to make clear that we won’t charge anyone for bandwidth billing until we have a way to provide information about usage, as Moisey pointed out in the past. We are working to provide this information, we will keep you posted.

                                      • SSH shortcut on Droplets page

                                        It would be very cool to have a shortcut to start a SSH session in one click from the list of Droplets.

                                        Link like "ssh://user@host:port"
