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".
(thinking…)

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.

    • Watch outbound ssh traffic for criminals

      A digital ocean hosted server just tried to crack my web server.

      There is **NO**REASON**ANY** hosted server should be making outbound SSH connections more than once an hour or to more than 10 hosts an hour OR ever use different usernames to ssh!

      Any digital ocean server that does this should be blocked immediately until the customer contacts you to justify this activity.

        • Create a pre-installed Drupal image for droplets

          Whilst there are images for Wordpress and Ghost, there is no image for latest Drupal version.

          Arguably one of the largest used CMS/CMFs online Drupal powers sites like nbc.com, whitehouse.gov and grammy.com. Why not allow Digital Ocean users the simplest path to getting started with Drupal on their own VPS by creating a Drupal image.

          • Spaces: Expose Access Logs

            Expose Access Logs (stored in a separate bucket/prefix) for requests to DO Spaces, for troubleshooting/analysis.

            This is one feature preventing us from considering a DO Spaces trial to replace S3 for a relatively large bucket :) Thanks.

            • Data Centre Tours

              Being a loyal customer of DigitalOcean's fantastic services for 3 years, I think it would be fantastic to have tours of data centres available!

              While I currently reside halfway around the world from SFO, I'd definitely would pay a visit to the data centre/s (and pay for it) - and see where exactly my production servers reside.

                  • Fix the RAM monitoring to exclude cached/buffered memory

                    Right now the RAM monitoring service does not work correctly, it includes cached/buffered memory in "used RAM" so we're always above 90% usage, but the real usage is much lower.

                            • monitoring agent should also monitor external volumes

                              Currently your monitoring agent only look at the droplet's main volume. Most of your datacenters now allow you to attach external volumes to droplets to expand storage on demand. Your agent should be able to monitor this feature of your platform.

                                Using some 3rd party SDKs like minio (in my case using go-minio) use Bucket Policies to set the permission of the bucket. It would be nice to get support for that.

                                • Attach billing invoices to email as a PDF

                                  Currently, when Digital Ocean sends its monthly billing invoice via email it doesn't attach the invoice to the email. Instead it gives a link to access the invoice, which is hosted elsewhere. This is nonsensical because it causes unnecessary additional steps in our Accounts Payable process when we're attaching invoices to expense payments.

                                  Most SaaS/IaaS providers (i.e. GSuite, AWS etc) attach their monthly invoice as a PDF within an email and DO NOT require the customer to access the invoice elsewhere via a link.

                                  Our organisation would benefit greatly if the invoices are simply attached as a PDF in the…

                                    • Possibility to create URLs with tokens in Space.

                                      Maybe a key feature of CDNs will be nice here, I mean, the possibility of create access tokens with expiration date and client IP (for example).

                                      • Allow Cloud Firewall rules to be disabled/enabled

                                        I keep SSH closed when I don't need it, so it'll be convenient if there is a feature to quickly enable and disable rules instead of deleting and creating them.

                                        • Spaces API: Support for Object Policies

                                          Object policies would go a great way in making this a real alternative to AWS S3 for us. That would allow us to make assets private but grant access to our users for a limited amount of time (when they are logged in). Or is there another way to achieve this currently?
