    • Support Indonesia debit card

      Indonesia's credit card penetration isn't high as Singapore due to low socialization and some reason, such as interest issue. Indonesian often use debit card to accomplish transactions. In order to ease Indonesia ordering the DO server, I think you should support all Indonesia debit card. Not just partial.

      Thank you.

      • Create a one click install for Flask. It would be awesome.

        I would also suggest doing it with Apache and Ubuntu. Meh. Others may disagree with these choices. Whatever. A Flask image ready to go would save developers who love Flask silly amounts of time.

        Plus I bet you there is a customer out there with an image all good to go that could be used.

        • Allow withdraw of credit from referrals at a certain % rate

          Allow users to choose to take $25 as account credit, or, say, $10 as payout.

          I understand that you've done payouts in the past but had issues with fraud, and I understand that you'd rather give people account credit than cash, so it makes sense to lessen the cash payout, but NOT to remove it entirely.

          I've already been promoting DO casually using my referral link and have had several sign-ups already. I could advertise DO on my blog etc., but there's not much incentive to do so, as it looks like what I'm doing already is going to cover…

          • Budgets with percentage triggers

            Allow users to create budgets with email notifications.

            The current system will send one email when a specified amount is reached. I don't find this very useful.

            Having goals with email triggers can not only remind users to delete resources they may have wanted to destroy, but also allow small to mid size developers get a handle on their monthly budget before the bill is due.

            Finer control over our billing alerts would be great for customers large and small.

              • 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.

                • allow droplet fencing when the hypervisor is nonresponsive

                  Hypervisor can get stuck for various reasons - just had a droplet unreachable for 40 minutes. In such a case, it's impossible to stop the droplet or detach its volumes.

                  If I have a droplet with blockstorage, and the data I care about is on the storage, I would like to be able to give up on the droplet without having to wait for DO to fix the hypervisor. Basically, a fence operation which would:

                  - detach the droplet volumes immediately
                  - detach floating IPs
                  - block outgoing traffic

                  These operations would have to be done at the storage/networking layers,…

                  • Support with Docker Cloud Swarm mode

                    Docker Cloud (https://cloud.docker.com) has started to roll out their new Swarm mode capabilities. We have been using their standard mode, with Digital Ocean as provider. However with the new Swarm mode the cloud providers are limited to AWS (and Azure coming soon), and Digital Ocean is not in this list. I would really not want to change from Digital Ocean, and hope that Docker Cloud are building on that as well, but I cannot see any progress on that from their side. Is it aware from your side that you are not in their list of cloud providers…

                      • 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.

                                • 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.

                                        • Add ability to download graphs

                                          I like the graphs feature which shows the bandwidth, CPU and Disk I/O for a period. I thought it would be nice if I could pass this information on to my client along with their monthly invoice.

                                          A simple "Download Graph image" button next to the graphs is all I'm asking for (which downloads a jpg or png to my hard drive).
