          • Allow multiple 1-click installs on the same droplet

            I would really like to be able to use multiple 1-click installs on the same droplet, such as running both gitlab and rails. I understand some of them might be incompatible, but surely not all of them!

            • Display correct IDN instead of punycode

              On DNS page, I would like to see IDN instead of punycode, which hard to understand.
              Also the form "Add Domain" should allow to add non-latin domain name.

                        • Add support for running paravirtualized guests

                          It would be awesome to have the option to run a paravirtualized guest similar to the one available in AWS. That way we could run droplets with our own custom bootloader and early userspace (kernel + initramfs), which would make DO a good place for kernel development or enable full disk encryption with cryptsetup or similar.

                          • Don't modifiy my machine when restoring from snapshot

                            Recently I had to move a droplet due to Digital Ocean Issues. I snapshotted the machine, destroyed and recreated it from the snapshot. However when the machine was recreated the root password was changed (and sent via email which is far from secure), along with the SSH host keys & my network interfaces file was changed - removing the iptables hook I had put there.

                            • Reverse the order of droplets in the select box when adding a domain via the DNS control panel

                              This would put the newest droplet at the top of the list, which likely describes the most common use case (create a droplet, create DNS records for it).

                              • Tell user that the user name for default SSH is the root

                                When I created my new stack, I told Digital Ocean tu use my SSH key. It said it will not send an email, and that's ok.

                                But, how I figure out the user name to login using ssh? You don't have any place that tells me so... I don't think that's really common, a lot of other services creates users with varies names, and I think on the Access Tab you should say something like: to SSH, use: ssh root@123.0.4.4 (of course, changing this IP for the current server IP, this one I typed randomly)

                                I think it's not clear…

                                • Freeze & Thaw: One click snapshot and destroy. One click snapshot restore.

                                  I use DO in place of VMs, but it's overly cumbersome to power down a droplet, re-enter the name & create a snapshot, then destroy the droplet and, when restoring from a snapshot, re-entering the name and selecting all the same settings to recreate the droplet.

                                  DO would be even more awesome (at least for me) if it had a one-click "Freeze" button that would power down my droplet, create a snapshot of the same name (replacing a snapshot of the same name), and then destroy the droplet. A corresponding "Thaw" button on snapshots would, with a single click, restore…

                                  • Flynn base image

                                    Flynn is nearing the first preview release and Digital Ocean just hired Jeff Lindsay, one of the primarily developers building it.

                                    If you aren't already considering it, a flynn base image would be pretty amazing. Especially if you could include some dashboard controls to point etcd at existing instances to easily add more droplets to a cluster.

                                    • Autodetection of the nearest datacenter

                                      There are some locations being proposed when creating droplet, but it's not quite clear which one should I use to get fastest response.

                                      PS. BTW one of the locations was already selected (NewYork 2), but turns out it was the slowest one, so I deleted a droplet and recreated on another location, and it helps a lot.

                                      • Create a datacenter in Israel

                                        Would be really appreciated if you could open a new datacenter in Israel.

                                        Many companies and individuals would use your israeli datacenter, including myself.

                                        No major company supports Israel, if you would be the first one - it could "break the market" there.

                                        Also - Israel is very close to turkey.

                                        Thanks in advance :)

                                        • Night mode for Dashboard.

                                          Really easy, but simple. On the dashboard, enable a switch so the user can switch to a black or dark grey background for evening work so it's a bit easier on the eyes.
