How to create a Windows 10 2016 Datacenter OS with a droplet that can be accessed via Remote Desktop?

Hello there just wondering if anyone could help me create a Windows 10 2016 Datacenter OS VPS using the droplet system. I want to be able to connect to it using Remote Desktop. With an IP and Password. Just like Google Cloud VPS. Thanks for your time reading and getting back to me. 😃

Unfortunately at this time we do not have native support for Windows OSs on Droplets. You may be able to achieve this however by creating your own custom Windows ISO image and then using that when creating your Droplet.

Currently, DigitalOcean only allows the deployment of Linux based OS’s.

NOTE: This is not natively supported on the platform (choosing a Windows OS when you deploy your droplet).

We’d recommend that you add your vote to the Windows Server idea on our Product Ideas Board as well as comment your use-case there so that our teams can better understand your needs.

Hope that helps!

    Hey there! Sadly we don’t have Windows available on DigitalOcean at present.

    If you would like to make a suggestion/feature request directly to our product team, then you can do so here:
