Anyone have issues with the droplet limit?

I decided to move my clients over to DigitalOcean, but never saw any mention of droplet limits. I didn’t worry too much about it since I looked at community questions and the common response was to “just ask support for an increase.” Well, I did ask for a modest 5 more droplets, and I got rejected. Presumably since I’m still in my first month with DigitalOcean. I even offered to pre-pay for the droplets. I guess I have to wait to move some of my clients over on DigitalOcean’s time.

Has anyone had issues with increasing their droplet limit? This is really frustrating.

Hey friend,

I’ve decided otherwise. Your droplet limit has been increased. Sorry for the trouble.


Today, when I try create new Droplet, I have same problem with limit Droplet too. Still waiting feedback from Digital Ocean support team, hmm

I asked to get more droplets as i started a vpn business using digital ocean’s servers. After days, no answers………

  • Hello, all

    If you want to increase your droplet limit you’ll need to follow these steps:

    First, access your account and navigate to your account page.

    Once there, you’ll want to click the Increase link to open the form to increase your account’s current limit.if you’re having a limit of 25 the option to increase the limit to 50 should work instantly and the limit will be increased to 50 droplets.

    If you require a higher limit, then fill out the form and after you’ve submitted the form, it will then be passed on to DigitalOcean’s support team for review.

    Hope that this helps!

    • i didn’t see anywhere where it says “Increase link”. Can you place the steps to reach that “Increase link” option. In my account, i see setting, billing and api. in settings, there is no “Increase link”.

      • You can request a Droplet limit increase via your DigitalOcean Control panel. Then go to ‘Settings’ -> ‘Profile’ -> And hit the ‘Increase’ button.

        Hope that this helps!

One month into using Digitalocean & I still have JUST 1 DROPLET as my cap despite using a $20 droplet package… Just sad.

I need a 2nd droplet to testrun some Linux Control Panel but oh well :(
