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. Add HipChat to monitoring alert types.

    Our organization uses HipChat over slack. HipChat notifications would be really great.

      • Add one click install for Mautic

        Mautic has expanded throughout the world. Many communication professionals who use the tool, hire vps but are not aware of the installation and configuration of the system. There are already competitors of you who do this. I think it's worth having it ready.

        • Fixes to the new Domain/DNS interface

          1. The new Domain/DNS interface seems to have lost some valuable features. From what I recall, the old interface for a domain's DNS records had:

          - Color codes for DNS record types (very helpful for quick looks).
          - Grouped DNS records order with A, CNAME etc. listed first.
          - Raw DNS record at the bottom. (There is a "Download zone" option in the domains list view, but I'd prefer to also have the raw record at the bottom, both for quick glances and copy/paste.)

          These valuable features have disappeared since the update. DNS records for a domain are now listed…

          • Tagging droplet as key <=> value

            Actually tags are only string.

            It could be useful to tag our droplet with a key / value format, as for example done with AWS.

            • Digital Ocean Publishing their Plans

              Could Digital Ocean post a blog about their plans?

              I'll give credit to Michael Barton-Gawryn who posted this comment:

              "Can the DO team publish a blog post outlining their plans? Regardless if it's a yes or no, I think the community would appreciate a heart felt update on this request."

              I thought this was a pretty good idea.

              • Broken navbar

                For example here https://www.digitalocean.com/help/pricing-and-billing/general/

                If you resize the window between 825px and 767px width the navbar gets mushed together. I have latest chrome and mac osx sierra. You should perhaps consider switching to same kind of navbar that Google has here https://www.tensorflow.org/ IMO it's an excellent navbar that is very straight forward.

                But keep up the good work! You have a really nice service.

                • 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…

                  • Backups Daily instead of Weekly

                    Automatic weekly backups seem a bit far between, daily backups would be better. Especially for droplets holding data.

                            • FaaS support

                              I really dislike Amazon's Lambda offerings for several reasons. I also haven't found a solution that isn't proprietary.

                              DO changed the landscape with hosting and development. I think it would be remarkable if you did the same for 'serverless' computing and allowed for open and scalable Functions as a Service.

                              Whaddya say?

                                Something like:

                                Admin: Will have permissions to manage droplets, billing and support.
                                Billing: Will have permissions to billing only, and support.
                                Dev: Will have permissions to see metrics and droplet info, but not to manage them.

                                And go on.

                                  • Firewall Source Tables

                                    Allow the creation of external sources as a kind of Table, like OpenBSD's pf, so that you can 'allow from friends', or 'allow from my external netblock'. Currently, if you need to allow access to multiple ports, you'd be typing in these IPs manually for each rule, then changing these in all affected rules later on is a pain. If your external source IPs could be grouped in the same way that tags group droplets, it would be trivial for the user to apply these groups to multiple rules and update that group across all rules in the future.

                                      • DNS subdomain delegation to a different team account/project

                                        Following use case:
                                        1. we have an production environment running an API at api.example.com, only some devops have access and api.example.com is defined in teamproject1
                                        2. we have a staging environment in teamproject2 with more devops having access rights and the domain ist stage.api.example.com.
                                        3. we manage both environments with terraform and ansible including domains.
                                        4. we need a subdomain delegation for *.stage.api.example.com from teamproject1 to teamproject2

                                        What could be done? Allow Subdomain delegation:

                                        1. create NS Records with ns1..3.do.com in teamproject1 for stage.api.example.com
                                        2. create rewquired ressource records in teamproject2 (A, MX , SRV, .....)

                                        Result at this moment: …
