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".

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. PayPal pending payment information

    Would be nice if there's a pending paypal payment to see it in our account... just to be sure that the information hasn't been lost...

    • Enable nested KVM

      This would allow users to run KVM virtual machines inside these wonderful KVM virtual machines.

      (Yo dawg, I heard you like KVM VMs...)

      • Allow launching droplets with no public ipv4 IP and give a discount for this

        Other posts have commented on the cost of providing extra IPv4 IPs. It strikes me many users may not actually need a public IP for their usage, and if appropriately incentivised would choose not to use one.

        • Support Page Improvement

          When a user is logged in and visits the support page it should also include a link to the Help & Community section. This way a user doesn't have to go back to digitalocean.com to access the awesome and help and community section.

            We’ve started working on a rather large improvement to the help system inside of the control panel.

            We’ll be launching it in the next 1-2 months and we hope that it will make it much easier to surface relevant information quickly.

            Thanks,
            Moisey

          • Date/Time Stamps in messages and on web-pages

            Date/Time Stamps in messages and on web-pages should be encapsulated in Javascript routines that allow me to adjust the timezone to my own local timezone or to another. A count down timer until an event would be nice.

            • Under Applications for creation of a Droplet, list whether the base is 32 or 64-Bit OS

              Currently under Applications, the Droplet options do not display whether they are based with 32 or 64-Bit OS loads. This would be helpful to know.

                • Display root password in control panel, not email

                  It would be *much* better to have a checkbox option at instance creation time to only generate/display root password on-screen, but not send via (plaintext) email. Much more secure.

                  Also, a key-only (e.g., no passwords allowed) checkbox option for VM access would be awesome.

                  Thanks!

                  • For Marketing: Send "Happy Birthday" e-cards via email

                    Given that DO ask for credit card info it wouldn't be hard to ask for users birth-date.
                    And then send them something like "Hey, here at DO we wish you a happy birthday! John Doe!".
                    sounds kinda forever alone haha, but it could be a nice marketing strategy.

                    It could be used with Holidays too.
                    Also, users could op-out if they feel that's too ""Privacy" invasive."

                    :)

                    • Add the term "feedback" or "uservoice" to "Digital Ocean" logo in the header on the uservoice feedback page

                      After posing and "idea" on the uservoice feedback page, I wanted to go back to the Droplet Console page, so I clicked on the "Digital Ocean" logo in the page header (banner) and, instead of taking be back to the Digital Ocean home page, as expected, it looped me back to the uservoice feedback home page!

                      So, I went looking for another link back to the Digital Ocean home page, and found two that are labeled "Digital Ocean" but I had little faith in them, based on my history of links of the same name!

                      I suggest you do something…

                      • Minor improvements to the login-page

                        Minor changes, just to make the login page better from a UI perspective;

                        1. Auto-focus on e-mail field
                        The e-mail field should automatically get 'focus' so that I can start typing directly, without having to click inside the field first.

                        2. User input type=email for email field
                        Please use a HTML5 'email' type input for the email field; this will pick the right 'keyboard-layout' when using the website on a mobile device

                              in the install link i would like to advice you that create a list of all installable packages from apt-get or different repos, create a boot, script that can install all the packages immediately after the droplet is created this creates a lot of ease in installation and can help beginners a lot of time

                              • Inform the user of the costs of making backups/snapshots before creation

                                I made a snapshot of my vps and it was one click and started, I assumed it was free. I read in to a little more and there is a small charge, and I'm not complaining the price is more than reasonable for what it is.

                                It's just more the fact that I didn't actually know that there was one, people shouldn't need to read up on the documentation in a blog post to know how much something costs.

                                Other than that, the service is great.

                                • CloudLinux image

                                  I would really like to see a CloudLinux option available. It has some really important features for web servers such as limiting CPU per user which can stop a single user from taking down a server due to resource consumption.

                                  Thanks

                                  • Allow screenshot of errors for support ticket.

                                    It would be great if we could upload screenshots of our errors to the support when we make a ticket.

                                    • Verbose logging during droplet provisioning

                                      An option to monitor a log while an droplet/snapshot deployment is processing. A progress bar is nice but I would like to see if something is hanging when I am provisioning droplets or creating a snapshot.

                                      • identify droplets in select menu of take a snapshot page by ip address as well as hostname

                                        I am constrained in my choice of hostname. To identify a droplet when making images, I need more characteristics: ip address seems to make sense, droplet size or location wouldn't be bad, but might not be unique.

                                          Hi, the service should be PCI compliant. I run a hosting company and our billing/customer portal is hosted on a DigitalOcean VPS. We want to begin accepting credit cards.
