Hi all,

I need to create a High CPU droplet with 8 dedicated vCPU in order to deploy a CPU intensive API backend server, however the only size that appears during the creation wizard is the smallest one (2 CPU).

Have you already experienced something like that? Am I missing something? Is there something I have to do in order to enable bigger sizes?
I've already tried to select different datacenters but nothing changes.

I need to deploy this server by tomorrow.

If you are a new account, you will need to open a support ticket requesting they increase your limits. I know this answer is WAY past your 1-day turn-around, but figured I'd at least give you closure.
