Administrator for several droplets. One admin account to log on my customer's droplets.

October 30, 2014 3.5k views

Hi. I'm a web developer and every time I deploy a project, I ask my clients to register a droplet.
When something goes wrong, I need to contact them, hope they remember they pass, or recover and then resend the emails to me, etc, etc.
Do you have any mechanism so that I could be sort of "admin" for all those droplets? Register my email as alternative email, so that I can talk to support and get direct contact/solutions?
What I do today is that I log in some customer's droplet and write from there ... I think you agree with me that that's ugly. Thanks.

  • You're trying to solve the wrong problem. This is not how you deploy services.

  • I agree with cherwin here. If you need to have access to a client's server, just host it for them. You're making the whole process harder than it has to be. Plus you can make a monthly profit from the hosting services on top of your other fees.

    Since your a web developer you could easily use the Digital Ocean API to automate the whole process, from payment to deployment.
