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 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.

    • Port the DigitalOcean Agent to Fedora, CoreOS and FreeBSD

      Currently the DigitalOcean Agent only supports Ubuntu 14.04 and higher, CentOS 6 and higher, and Debian 8.

      I suggest that DigitalOcean ports the Agent to cover the other 3 offerings of Fedora, CoreOS and FreeBSD.

        • Automatically advise which center would be faster from my current location

          i used to create same droplet specs and run stress testing one by one to measure which center would be faster to my country. it would be great addition if you developed a new service to show performance at any moment from all your centers responses.

                • DigitalOcean Payment Receipt should at least link to billing

                  Currently DigitalOcean Payment Receipt message beside beside being a remainder, does not serve any useful purpose.

                  Is should contain an invoice as attachment, but even if its not doing that it at leas allow non technical users (read: to busy to look for stuff every month) easy acces to billing invoices:

                  It should contain a link do Billing: https://cloud.digitalocean.com/settings/billing

                  Even better to billing for a team it belongs to.

                  • Add iCal Calendar for maintenance schedule

                    It would be helpful if there were an iCal calendar that we could subscribe to which showed when maintenance was being done in each datacenter.

                          • Add automatic DNS CNAME flattening for root domain

                            Current situation:
                            If I enter my root domain into the "hostname" field I'm only allowed to create entries such as A, AAAAA, MX etc. but not CNAME.

                            Wanted situation:
                            I can create a CNAME entry with my root domain and this will be flattened automatically, like Cloudflare does (https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/200169056-CNAME-Flattening-RFC-compliant-support-for-CNAME-at-the-root)

                            • PROXY Protocol in Load Balancer

                              When using a TCP load balancer it would be still useful to know the the IP address the original address came from.

                              HAProxy has a PROXY protocol which is sent to the downstream server with IP information when a new client connects before sending proxying any data.

                              • VMs behind a Load Balancer should be on different physical machines.

                                It would be good that we can manage the physical machine where a NEW vm that is added to the LB starts.
                                If we can control that then we can make sure the LB is doing failover as well as balancing.

                                • API endpoint for droplet metrics infos

                                  An API endpoint to access the collected metrics infos would be useful.
                                  It should return everything you can see in the webinterface:
                                  - CPU
                                  - RAM

                                  - Bandwith
                                  - (Top) Processes grouped by RAM and CPU usage

                                    • allow monitoring policies to be created for all droplets (rather than having to select droplets individually)

                                      Currently, when you create a policy, you need to manually select the droplets it applies to.

                                      For basic policies (disk nearly full, cpu over-used) I just want them to apply to all droplets - both current ones and future ones.

                                      A simple checkbox 'apply to all droplets' would make it easier to create the policy, and would mean I didn't have to remember to add future droplets to my policies whenever I create them

                                      • Allow prepay with credit card

                                        Allow prepay with credit card, send automated verification code per transaction as security check, Paypal just do this way, no much security as one would imagine.
