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".

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.

      Hi,

      DigitalOcean is a cloud hosting provider with hundreds of thousands of active virtual servers in use by our customers. Each virtual server has its own public IP address. If you believe that one of our customers is maliciously attempting to access your site, please reach out to our abuse team using this form:

      https://digitalocean.com/company/contact/#abuse

      or by emailing abuse@digitalocean.com with any supporting information.

      Thanks!

    • Revisit new snapshot pricing structure

      "Starting October 1, 2016, we will begin charging for snapshot storage at $0.05 per gigabyte per month. This will first be reflected in the invoice posted to your account on November 1, 2016. Like other features, snapshot storage uses hourly pricing, and size is calculated from a compressed version of the snapshot—not the total disk space allocated to the Droplet."

      I see a problem with this method stemming from the way that snapshot sizes are calculated:

      "Our snapshot sizes are determined on the size of your Droplet's sparse disk image, and any data that is added to your server and…

            • Talk by phone to answer customer questions. Your competition does. You're 100% not customer friendly.

              You are a server for programers. My CTO left the US and me holding the bag. Your competition will talk to us and wants our business, but we can't even get DO to tell us why we can't access our app on your server. I know zero about technology but have been a customer for2 1/2 years. Why can't you be professional? You're in the service business.

              • htaccess

                Hello Digital Ocean Team,
                how can I block all IPs from www.digitalocean.com that access my website http://www.reiseberichte.bplaced.net ?
                I have a .htaccess file but seems like it is not working how it should be. I am not an expert and can only add the IPs which I see on my stat counter, looks like

                # Digital Ocean
                deny from 45.55.133.225
                deny from 45.55.133.228
                deny from 45.55.133.229

                  • Have the Graphs show RAM usage. Please do not treat FreeBSD as a second class citizen and support the platform (EG: with your new do-agent)

                    I would like the new DO graphs to show RAM usage. I understand there is a new do-agent that helps with this but it seems FreeBSD is not supported. Please do not treat the BSDs as a second class citizen and when you announce new software like your agent, support the BSD platform as well. Thank you!

                        Hi Christian,

                        Thank you for the feedback. Striking a balance between usability and preventing abuse is important to us. We are taking your feedback under review to determine where we can make improvements in our product and processes.

                        Thank you again.

                      • BitCoin Blockchain node with user containers on top of it to access Blockchain in read-only mode.

                        Can you host a BitCoin Blockchain node and on top of that node provide regular VM containers that would let the users have access to underlying host Blockchain FS as read-only and can write scripts or play with the blockchain.

                        This means that each individual user do not have to have a decided expensive VM for blockchain and it will be less resource intensive to Digital Ocean since only one host bandwidth will be utilised.

                        I will willing to subscribe to this with a $5 VM. Thanks.

                              Minio is Open Source Object Storage, written in Go programming language. It is compatible with AWS S3 signature v4 API.

                              It will be a great add on to one-click-apps for DigitalOcean users, they can host object storage content like AWS S3 in one click.

                                • Hook up status.digitalocean.com email notices with in use regions

                                  I'm signed up to receive status updates via email from status.digitalocean.com. I have no problems with the level of communication provided on there or via email.

                                  What I'd like to be able to do, however, is sign up only for notifications in the regions that I, or clients that I'm on the team of, have droplets in.

                                  • Improve invoices

                                    I'm sure having PDF invoices is sufficient for many users, but it would be great to have other ways to view the data; either by being able to export to an XLS so a user can manipulate on their own, or presenting it in a data table.

                                    This would mitigate the need for creating separate "teams" who's only purpose is to generate separate bills, when the users/settings/resources are the same.

                                    • Add option to announce own IP-Space (BYOIP) at DigitalOcean

                                      I would be happy to see a option, to announce my own IP-Space (eg. /24) at DO, so i can use my own IP-Addresses with the droplets.
                                      Some other Cloudproviders offers this option.

                                      In 2014 this suggestion was declined.
                                      Lets try it again. :)

                                      • Support for Installation or Automize the Installation processes for Networking for Startups who cant afford a Sys Admin

                                        The objective is to automize HA options or any networking(active-active machines) database options(like a master-master replication) that would require a system admin/DBA. For startups hiring a system admin/DBA does not make sense. So for a small fee if Digital Ocean can setup the requirement it would be great.
