Datacenter in Australia / New Zealand

Posted May 2, 2015 13.3k views

Would love a datacenter in either of these two places. Currently I have a Singapore Droplet, but the latency is still too slow for customers in NZ.

Adding my voice, despite it being literally a drop in the ocean.

+1 for hosting in NZ (or Australia)

The “User Voice” link in this thread is broken, so I apparently do not have a voice.

Currently in the process of switching to another provider that has unmanaged VPS hosting in Australia. I do like DigitalOcean, and have had a good experience so far. So if you add a datacenter in the south pacific I might return.

So long, and thanks for all the fish!

  • I agree! I’m in the same situation, my client’s sites/applications are slow so I now have to look at migrating elsewhere even though I love digital oceans platform!

  • I too am in need of better options inside New Zealand. I’ve been paying for dedicated servers from various hosts for the last 5 years. I’d be very pleased with Digital Ocean moving into the country.

+10000000 (Australia / New Zealand Servers)

This is the second-highest request…

Other similar providers such as Linode and Vultr have this !

Why are we still waiting, I understand things take time but the request is 6 years old plus, at the very least answer your community DigitalOcean.

So but since moving to NZ from the UK I cant use your service any more (Going to switch to Linode). It’s a shame as I have always recommended your guys… But the no answer to this question/request is unacceptable.


+1, we would host dozens of sites with DO if they had AU servers.

Hey there,

It looks like someone has had the same idea before and has posted it on our Product Ideas board. The best thing to do would be to head over and add your vote to it, as well as adding any additional information in the comments for exactly what you’d like to see implemented!

Hope that helps!
