  1. Search feature in domain DNS managment

    A search feature in DNS managment section to search for domains. It would save a lot of time when i have DNS entries over 100 mark.

    • Add DNSSEC support to the DNS manager

      This would mean that you would allow us to upload our DNSSEC keys in the manager, so that your name servers can sign their responses, and prove authenticity of their responses.

          • Change the +/-'s in billing

            When i spend money it shows up as -amount, when you bill me it seems to be a +amount. This surely should be the other way around especialy when regarding my billing right now looks like i has more -money than +money when i look at the breakdown, ofc the overall amounts are spot on.

            • Traffic Stats

              When we have now a traffic limit and must pay for over traffic we really need traffic stats so we can see what we have to pay when traffic is empty and pay traffic begin ;)

                  • Google Wallet/Checkout

                    Hey,

                    It would be great if Digital Ocean could use Google Checkout as a payment method.

                    It's great and easy way to pay.

                    It can open to new and happy costumers.

                    I see this has been taken up before, but somehow it did not go trough, I want you to vote for this to make Digital Ocean a place for everyone, even if you don't use Google Checkout, help us who do. No reason to let PayPal be the only thing except credit card, that we can use.

                    • Group DNS entries by the server they are on

                      Group DNS entries into a dropdown per server that they pertain to. I am migrating all of my domains from my current shared host and you guys kick ass.

                      The DNS screen is getting crowded already and when it comes time to add additional servers, it would be nice to have all of my DNS entries under the server they are on.

                      Keep up the good work.

                      • Description field for droplets

                        Can be used to enter client specific data (or even which client the droplet belongs to), etc.

                        • AWS Direct connect

                          It will be good to get AWS Direct connection for your datacenters so that customers in AWS can access instances without delay. It can also be a good migration plan. Currently the latencies between AWS and DO are fairly large

                          • Create a dashboard to view metrics for all droplets

                            It would be great to be able to see the usage metrics of every droplet I have at a glance.

                            How about creating a dashboard where I could view the mem & CPU usage, network traffic etc for all droplets on once screen?

                            • Provide Billing Details in the API

                              In order to fairly share actual cost with partners, it would be very helpful to provide the billing details currently available as a PDF in the API. Alternatively have it downloadable in a more machine readable format from the web site.

                              The reason is that the cost for droplets run only for a couple of hours should be charged to the partner using that droplet (based on internal logging) and not be split equally.

                                We’ve been working on our new API v2 which also has OAuth support. We’ve delayed adding some requested features to v1 of our API as we’ve been working on v2 so after we launch v2 we will begin on adding additional functionality such as monitoring account balances and also exposing more billing and pricing information via the API as well.

                                Thanks,
                                Moisey

                                    • Easily move from droplet to droplet in control panel

                                      I'd like to be able to easily change to a different droplet in the control panel. For example, when viewing the settings or graphs of one droplet, I want to check the settings or graphs of another droplet. Right now, I have to go back to view all droplets, then select the droplet I want to view. I think making the droplet name at the top (by console access) a drop down menu, with a list of the other droplets, would be an easy way to access other droplets with fewer clicks.

                                      • 1000Hz Kernel for Voip applications

                                        Hello,
                                        It would be great if you have a kernel compiled with 1000hz option (as in Amazon EC2). This is optimized for Voip. Please consider to create one as many clients like me are trying to make voip work on DigitalOcean.
                                        Best Regards
                                        Hector

                                        • Support the rngd virtio driver

                                          When hosting a secure website that gets lots of traffic, requests can be stalled due to insufficient entropy to feed the cryptographic process. On bare-metal hardware, the rngd daemon can feed the kernel's entropy provider, but there's no available driver that can currently be used by rngd in Digital Ocean containers (droplets).

                                          The KVM hypervisor used by Digital Ocean does, in fact, provide an rngd "virtio" driver, but Digital Ocean is not providing it yet along with their other virtio drivers.
