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".

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.

  1. Transactional Email Service

    Transactional email is definitely required for developers to ensure email deliverability and flexibility. Digitalocean can provide free tier to those email triggered from droplet (just like there is free tier in AWS SES for emails triggered from EC2) this would encourage developers to spin new droplets as EC2 is tad costlier than Digitalocean. Maybe you can offer around 15k-20k emails free per month if triggered from DO droplet. You can also have different tiers for different droplets .. just a thought. Those is favour please vote.

      • 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

        • Tighten up security on load balancers.

          Digital Ocean load balancers currently accept TLS1.0 and ciphers with short keys which have been confirmed to be a security risk. Clients that use a load balancer for their application will most likely not pass security audits because of this.

          TLS1.0
          ======
          Load balancers currently still accept TLS1.0 which has been confirmed vulnerable to POODLE attacks as of December 2014. Only very old browsers do not support TLS1.1 and TLS1.2 (e.g. Internet Explorer 9 and below) which have a negligible market share by now (see, for example, https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=000220586&language=en_US&type=1).

          All TLS1.0 cypher suites should be disabled.

          TLS1.1 and TLS1.2

          • Change input padding (Add Monitor Alert)

            On the new Monitor Alert (https://cloud.digitalocean.com/monitors/new?xxx), the input that ask for the alert name (Name and create alert policy) has a weird padding ( 1.3rem .85rem .45rem!important ).
            It could be set like: .45rem .85rem .45rem!important

            • PayPal preview ("N months of our $M droplet") specific to my account.

              If I enter $50, it says:
              This will get you five months with our $10 droplet.

              What would be more useful is:
              This will pay for one month of your current droplets.

              • Add swap usage as a monitoring metric

                Add swap usage as a monitoring metric (for linux based servers). Either number of swap pages in use, or perhaps swap rate.

                • Find a way to lower the shipping cost

                  It would be great have lower shipping costs of the merchandise so that we can show our support publicly, not only by buying servers and twitt about it.

                  Find 15$ shipping to much compared to the product price and size.

                    • In the High-CPU class of droplets, offer a single CPU option for single-threaded apps (like haproxy)

                      Currently, in the High-CPU class of droplets, the lowest package has 2 dedicated CPUs. It would be nice if there was a single-CPU package for single-threaded apps, like haproxy.

                        We’re currently looking into having a 1vCPU High-CPU Droplet. The current set of plans just launched about a month ago but we’ll be regularly reviewing feedback and making changes going forward. I’ll update this request once things get updated.

                      • 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.

                          • that not only the primary account e-mail receive e-mail notifications, please add more contact ways

                            i.e. notify to multiple email accounts, webhook for Slack or any other alert app the customer is using for such important event. (for example we had a server rebooted but it was just notified to the account that gets billed not the actual devops team)

                              Wildcard txt records are currently not supported, and returns a "Name is not a valid TXT record name" error.

                              • As an agency is very hard to keep an overview of all the droplets

                                It would be great to be able to store some meta data with each droplet like “owner” and some notes (where one could for example store a link to some page with more details etc). This should all be shown in the team droplet overview.

                                  • Allow downsizing of Droplets

                                    The constant excuse rolloed out for this is weak and nonsense. Other providers can manage this (Linode for example) so there is no reason DO cannot.

                                    • Kubernetes One-Click App

                                      I would LOVE to have a one-click app or UI managed cluster (similar to GKE / Rancher / Stackpoint / etc) version of Kubernetes.

                                      • Allow for "pre paying" an amount

                                        So that it is "harder" to accidentally let your account go under from a credit card expiring, for instance, if it only ever lets your account go "down" to $10 or what not.

                                        • Publish 'The Deep End Podcast' to other platforms

                                          Well the idea is to publish 'The Deep End Podcast' to other platforms than just iTunes, like Spotify ect.

                                          Take me for example I use Spotify and don't really want to download iTunes for just the podcasts.

                                          All the best!
