  1. Check loadbalancer status via API

    It would be grate if you add feature to retrive load balancer status via API. I mean status about current health (healty, issue, down) and requests per second statistics (Reqs/s). Some thing like this: /v2/load_balancers/$LOAD_BALANCER_ID/status
    We are one of your biggest customers and this feature would help us a lot. Thanks!

    • 67.205.179.243 Hacked my Facebook account in July 2017 anyone else have the same problem?

      I wasn't a member then of Digital ocean and i don't know why I got hacked. I'm very upset Digital Ocean never got back with me on this.

              • automatically copy backups to other datacenters

                It would be great if we had the ability to have backups automatically replicate to other DO datacenter(s). This would work just like we can already do [manually] with snapshots, but be able to have the automatic weekly backups replicate to another DO datacenter for DR purposes.

                • HIPAA compliance Security Level in need

                  I'm having more and more request regarding HIPPA compliance security level that I need to include at some point in the list of features that I cover under my services. So I was wondering if or when roughly digital ocean planned to maybe add that feature in the system?

                  • Justin Ellingwood article on Ansible automation of a personal Ubuntu-Nginx-Mysql-PHPFPM-WPCLI environment

                    I think Justin Ellingwood is the best documentation writer from the writers I've seen so far in DigitalOcean.

                    I would be happy to see an article by Justin explaining didacticaly (as Justin so piquantly do), how to automate this typical environment:

                    #!/bin/bash
                    ufw --force enable && ufw allow 22,25,80,443,9000/tcp
                    apt-get update -y && add-apt-repository ppa:certbot/certbot -y && apt-get update -y
                    DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get upgrade zip unzip tree unattended-upgrades sshguard postfix -y
                    apt-get upgrade nginx python-certbot-nginx mysql-server php-fpm php-mysql php-mbstring php-mcrypt -y
                    sed -i "s/post_max_size = .M/post_max_size = 200M/ ; s/upload_max_filesize = .M/upload_max_filesize = 200M/" /etc/php/*/fpm/php.ini
                    sed -i "s/;cgi.fix_pathinfo=1/cgi.fix_pathinfo=0/" /etc/php/*/fpm/php.ini
                    # sed…

                        There's a wordpress plugin for Amazon S3 that moves all WP media to Amazon S3, so why not a wordpress DO space plugin?

                                • 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.

                                    The "Discourse" One-Click Application is made better by including HTTPS by "Let's Encrypt".

                                    Can you do this too?

                                      • East-Central Europe Datacenter in Budapest (Hungary)

                                        East-Central Europe is a fast growing part of Europe. Budapest is the geographical center of this area and has good network infrastructure. So it is an excellent location to serve from.

                                        • offer floating IPs as VIPs, without anchors

                                          NATing through an 'anchor IP' interferes with some protocols, and especially UDP-based protocols. It also makes configuration odd; instead of telling the service that -- when and if it receives connections and packets -- they'll come on a certain public IP, I need to tell it both its public IP and its 'anchor' IP.
