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".
(thinking…)

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.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. create default domainnames, like droplet_id.droplets.digitalocean.com

    For convenience, it would be great to have some kind of domainname available for a droplet, to allow easy testing of subdomains and such, and also prepare for migrations.

      • Give users the necessary information to avoid underprovisioning

        Context: http://www.xaprb.com/blog/2010/06/01/under-provisioning-the-curse-of-the-cloud/

        If given the specs of the host machine (number of cores, whether those cores have hyperthreading, amount of RAM, number and size of SSDs), an intelligent user can determine how big a share of that machine she is getting. Some indication of current CPU and I/O load for the machine hosting a given droplet may also be helpful.

            • Add Miami Data Center

              I'm in Brazil and we usually host outside here, as it's cheaper and usually better. Having a Miami Data Center can improve latency in many crucial milliseconds, that would make digital ocean the most competitive company here. I also know that some other south american countries have better connectivity with Miami than any other US location, so it is a win-win for everybody

              • Sign email with GPG

                Reduces the possibility of somebody phishing DO accounts or spoofing email. Especially important if the emails ever contain anything more specific than "Ticket has been updated".

                • Option to automatically add IPs to DNS

                  When I create new Droplets I would like the IP of the droplet to be added to a DNS record of my choice, maybe be able to set it based on Image, including sub-domans.

                  Also, if this is enabled the Droplets that were auto-assigned to a DNS would be removed when deleted.

                  • Use official distro-provided cloud images where available

                    Creating an image is a tricky process with plenty of room for subtle mistakes. At least one distro, Ubuntu, provides official "cloud images" (http://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/). DigitalOcean should use these official images where available, rather than rolling its own.

                      • Provide geolocation information for regions API

                        It would be nice to know the actual physical location of the regions in the API. This could be simply locale codes, or lat/long. I know you can discover this stuff using reverse IP lookups, but that only happens after you've created an instance.

                        • Add Markdown to Support Tickets

                          Adding Markdown support to support tickets will allow users to more clearly describe our issues (code formatting, links, etc.).

                          Support tickets are also our own little knowledgebase that can be referenced forever. Having some basic formatting in them will make them more readable and useful.

                                I've noticed my linux images didn't come with any swap space and had to allocate it myself. It would be nice to have space space allocated already in the linux images.

                                  • Great System - Would love to see TurnKey Linux images available

                                    I love your system.. Very very easy, and extremely cost competitive compared to other systems.

                                    I would love to see TurnKey Linux Images to choose from.. Other than that, I cannot think of a better cloud provider!!!

                                    Thank you!

                                      1. When logged in, clicking the logo should take you to the homepage
                                      2. When logged in, the homepage should indicate that I'm logged in with a link to my account and server settings
                                      3. In the account left navigation, add a link to all your help docs.

                                      • Add public support tickets statistics

                                        I think it could be a good idea to track your support tickets and make it public. I think it could make you a special host and encourage people to sign seeing that you are transparent.

                                        Example: February 1th, average answer time: 2 hour

                                        • Adding kernel management to the web user interface

                                          Well , many users needs kernel upgrade .. i think ..

                                          I need kernel V3.6 into CentOS 6.3 , but i can not upgrade it because i am works on VPS not a dedicated server

                                          I love DO' , which is the best :) so we need more Dev's on it :)

                                          Thanks to Etel <3
