Datacenter in Australia / New Zealand

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.

Hi there,

We’re excited to announce that our newest state-of-the-art data center in Sydney, Australia (SYD1) is open for business!

Starting today, you can spin up Droplets, Kubernetes clusters, or any of your favorite products in the SYD1 data center.

Sydney marks our first data center in the southern hemisphere and expands our global footprint to 15 data centers across 9 regions around the world.

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!
