  1. Please do not blocking SMTP on the new account

    Hello there,

    I am new on DO, I had created a droplet then i very excited about it but that is short. I was very disappointed when I suddenly realized that my users cannot reset their password since the SMTP is blocked by DO. This is really bad since I didnot know about this before switched from AWS. Therefore I had switched back to AWS.

    I do not know why DO block SMTP on new account?, How can the live sites work on new account without mail function?

    • Add ability to convert droplet's existing IP to a floating IP

      I desire moving services to a new droplet, but one of the services depends on the IP of my droplet, which would neccessarily have to change. It'd be nice to convert the existing IP to a floating IP and generate a new one for the droplet so that I could move the existing IP along to a new droplet.

              • 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.

                  • Integrate Apple Pay

                    I know integrating another payment method requires significant work, but I and possibly many others would appreciate it if you could add Apple Pay as a payment option! I try to use Apple Pay as much as is possible because it’s more secure than other methods, and the merchant doesn’t see your actual credit card or debit card number. Thank you for considering this.

                    • Alphabetical sort on list of teams

                      Once we started hitting about 20+ teams on our accounts then it's starting to get a bit annoying to find the one we want to switch to. Sorting alphabetical should be a really easy fix to help this.

                      • allow droplet default OS option preference

                        how about putting in preferences your default choice for the OS?

                        we all know that Centos-7 is the undisputed best, not Ubuntu... ;-)

                        and when selecting the distribution preference, a little popup should appear that says "this idea was suggested by our good friend marky".

                        • New Tokyo data center, instead of Australia

                          We are very interested to use digital ocean, but latency from Singapore data center to major markets like Australia is too slow.

                          I'm suggesting Tokyo, instead of Sydney, because using references from AWS and GCP, Tokyo's average latency to major Asia markets like Syndey, Singapore, Taiwan/HongKong appear to be the best, compare to their Data centers in Sg or Sydney (dont ask me why)

                          Here are the references:
                          AWS: https://www.cloudping.co/
                          GCP: https://geekflare.com/google-cloud-latency/

                            • Need a new payment method, Alipay.

                              This is a common payment method for Chinese people.
                              In fact, not only can I not use the payment options on digitalocean.com. Most of the introduction websites of China VPS tend to recommend VPS service providers who can use Alipay, such as https://doub.io/vps-tj/. Chinese people do not have the habit of using PayPal and other credit cards, most of which use Alipay, and Alipay is also the largest payment service provider in China.
                              If digitalocean.com adds Alipay option, digitalocean.com will bring a lot of income from China.
                              Https://intl.alipay.com/ is the official website of Alipay. We hope you understand and…

                                Come on. Our dev team spent hundreds of hours setting up our server and then you just switch it off without notice.

                                How about allowing existing admin access to the server? Block http and https but at least give us a chance to get our files off.

                                  I've noticed the one-click machine comes with Tensorflow 0.12.1 installed, that version is way back from 2016! How did this come to be, considering they're such a recent addition to the DO arsenal?

                                          You're SPAM enablers and reporting SPAM to you is a waste of time. Get off your ass and do something about the SPAMMERS you allow to use your networks.
