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.

  1. DNS records longer than 255 characters

    I host Kerio servers on DO as well as DNS and I've come across an issue. Going forward Kerio 8.2 will support DKIM finally however the keys it's generates are at least 400 characters long. DO only support up to 255 meaning I have to deploy my own DNS servers. Since I love the DNS interface on DO I don't really want to do that.

    So I guess my suggestion is for DO to support txt records longer than 255 characters

    • support page should show which of my tickets where marked as critical

      On https://cloud.digitalocean.com/support it should indicate for each of my tickets whether I ticket the "truly critical" checkbox or not.

      I just submitted a critical ticket and now I wonder if I checked the checkbox or not.

      • Offer Droplets with pre-installed VNC server

        It would be nice if you could select an option to have a droplet come with a pre-installed VNC server. I'm sure it would be easy to add the feature and would save people like me a lot of time. Thanks for your consideration.

        • Allow users to SWIP their IP

          Hello,
          It would be great if we (individual users and companies) could have our own information on the IP WHOIS records. This process is called IP SWIP.

          • Support SmartOS hosts

            SmartOS as a host OS would allow having SmartOS Containers as droplets. SmartOS Containers have zero overhead, so I/O would be even faster. KVM is supported too.
            SmartOS is a huge edge Joyent has over Digital Ocean for me.
            (being able to use DTrace would also really kick ass.)

            • Droplet Console: "Snapshots" -- please add reminder of how to "poweroff your droplet from the command line"

              On the Droplets console under "Snapshots" it says "To take a snapshot please poweroff your droplet from the command line." Since I do this is so infrequently, I forget how. If it's different for different flavors of Linux, then how about a link to a help page. [I mean, Digital Ocean is supposed to be all about making personal VPS obtainable for developers -- so perhaps a little more hand-holding, there]

              • *** Droplet status email notifications ***

                *** PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE !!!! ***

                Add the option to send email notifications when a droplet goes offline, a backup fails or other status information.

                Our droplet stopped today for no reason and we only found out when we started receiving emails from infuriated customers!

                Such a simple thing is absolutely critical and I am surprised it's not already provided for!

                  Yeap DigitalOcean in other languages​​, such as Spanish, Portuguese (Brazil), French, the most used worldwide. This to make it a little friendlier =)

                  • SSH shortcut on Droplets page

                    It would be very cool to have a shortcut to start a SSH session in one click from the list of Droplets.

                    Link like "ssh://user@host:port"

                      • Pay for Managed Support / Phone Support

                        I could really use a for fee problem resolution service. I have been working on a problem all weekend, which I eventually solved, that I would have been very happy to have paid for someone to solve for me.

                        • Spanish Datacenter

                          It would be great to have Spanish IP. That would provide faster access and better SEO for spanish sites

                          • Add ACL Support

                            Would love to see some sort of ACL functionality. Would be great to allow different users access to droplets, permission to add droplets, etc, on a per user basis. Obviously a more complicated example of this is AWS's IAM.

                            For Digital Ocean to be a viable option on an enterprise level, or even be a viable option for any business that has more than one or two developers, this would make a big difference.

                            • Tweak some things about the billing page for new customers

                              credit card form is very dark, and appears disabled. maybe lighten things up a bit?

                              Clicking add card takes you to the next screen, missing the promo field at the bottom, I had to deactivate my account in order to add the promo code I came prepared with. Perhaps moving the promo field up, or having a continue/next button for confirmation would make it easier.

                              FYI -> Firefox/25.0 on Mint KDE 15 AMD64

                                • Billing Page Exposes Only Default Payment Option With "Sudden Debit" Action

                                  I forget what it's called, but on the "Billing" page, when there's a balance due, a button is presented--called something like, "Pay Amount" or "Pay Owed" or some name that doesn't really imply the "instant" action. Pressing that button causes a default action that uses the Credit Card on file, and completes the checkout process with no "summary" or "review" step.

                                  This month I wanted to take the money from a different account (i.e. PayPal), but I forgot about the default [sudden debit] action (I mean, this only happens once a month, and my memory isn't that good!), so [WAP!]…

                                    • Keep email field value after a failed login

                                      When a user enters a bad password, the page is reloaded with chrome indicating failed login, however, the value of the email field is also removed.

                                      I would like to have the email value preserved as well as the focus to automatically be on the password field.

                                        • PGP key encryption for IP/root login emails.

                                          Ability to upload a PGP public key that the new droplet creation emails are encrypted with and then sent to.
