Anyone running a email server for multiple domains will have a issue with the restriction of one IP per droplet. If the reverse lookup on the source server's IP address doesn't match the domain name from which the email appears to originate then the mail server automatically gets marked as a spam server by most common email services. seperate IP addresses per domain are absolutely necessary for all the domains from which you hope to send out email.
I was hoping to move my hosting from super expensive The Planet(Orbit/softlayer) to digital ocean but knowing that I can't purchase additional IPs for the domains I intend to send email from is a big deal breaker. I hope you change this policy.
I have an idea to those who want to have multiple IPs per droplet. On your "large" droplet where want to use multiple IP, set up a VPN server. For each additional IP, create a 5$ droplet with a VPN client on it. But I think to use the small droplets' IPs on the main node, you will have to dst-nat the traffic from the small droplets outside IPs to the main droplet's private IP inside the virtual private network. It should work, but never tried.
buy a vps somewhere else, with an ip subnet, and redirect it over a tunnel.
I play with the other side, i redirect my traffic through a droplet ip address from my router, over a simple gre tunnel, and some iptables command it was.
Not sure if this post is dead or not since September... but it looks like ppl don't get it.
If some other providers have additional IPv4 address to give out then you guys are lucky.
IPv4 addresses have been running out for a few years, and only last couple years ppl started to freak out about. And yet, ppl still don't get it.
There are some providers that lucked out, operated for many years, or eaitherway have managed to purchase a substantial IPv4 address block. But when they run out, they'll have to recycle old ones that ppl canceled. And will not be able to purchase more. Thats it. Its done. IPv4 addresses are done. When they were created people who made them didn't even believe they'd ever need so many. Well yes. we did. many times more than what we got.
Thats one thing to keep in mind for the people who stumble onto this post in the future, forget about IPv4 addresses, look for IPv6...
I see that DO is now offering IPv6 addresses with some of the locations.. It sounds like IPv6 will practically be unlimited per machine, per cell phone,.. per every device ever produced for many years to come...
So.. the question is now, will you be offering multiple IPv6 addresses with droplets? When? or Why not?
Also, you are showing the IPv6 address only once it seems. I got it once in the email when creating the droplet, and if I delete that email, I don't know of a way to retrieve it again. It's not visible in the dashboard UI.
i have research for a while about this issue, seems there is no win-win solution about this...
Google Chrome will mark all HTTP Protocol as insecure begin in 2015, so basically all webmaster need to use HTTPS protocol.

Too few IPv4 name servers (1).
Only one IPv4 name server was found for the zone. You should always have at least two IPv4 name servers for a zone to be able to handle transient connectivity problems.
This is also a problem when we use single IP for both name server, can anyone help me?
I'm not sure digital ocean really care about giving us multiple IP addresses. I only run few of mine here on DO and I run a hosting server on Amazon, bit expensive though compare to DO. but still OK.
I would be really great at least like 2-4 IPs max is allowed for droplets over $40/m + or something like that.
I'm surprised to see after 3 years of constant BS, digital ocean hasn't implemented this ("due to the global shortage of IPs" is a straight-out lie: I can create two droplets, why can't I create a droplet with two IPs?).
atlantic (which to be honest looks like a pixel-perfect rip-off of digital ocean) offers this feature, if anyone is interested.
