I’ve had 2 account created when I started using Digital ocean. One of them was really just a mistake. I create a account with another of my email but never used it (no droplet, no payment information, no credit)
Now I just happened to login to the unused account by mistake (both account pwd where stored in my password manager) and then to my actual account.
The account was flagged immediately.
I understand there might be some abuse with account creation but this is clearly excessive IMO:
I would understand if they flagged IP for creating too many account of maybe even for doing many logging to different account. But right now it seems excessive / not well tuned.
I hope this restrictions are only Limited to Sign up. Or is it related to day to day usage as well. Is any one still facing this issue ?
I am a services provider and handle multiple client Logins, I might be using same browser to access multiple accounts provided by my client . Also I might access multiple accounts from multiple browsers from a same system.
If this is the case all my clients who use Digital Ocean will be in a fix.
The same thing is happening to me and the support team isn’t replying me :( I have had another account with DO but I would have never expected that my account will be locked suddenly causing me a great loss in my business
You want to know what is worse? Registering under an iCloud email getting $100 free credit enabling google sso as your migrating your wordpress site off another provider to find out OH wow it’s a new account. I did revoke access for an Android phone I no longer have in my possession I’ve spent like 4 hours cover tutorials and I’ll probably never get this reconciled I’m really very upset .
So to be clear, I set up multi factor authentication which I then revoked because it showed a phone I no longer have access too enabled google sso just before that and my account magically vanishes from the air. Rather then being registerd under the iCloud email address it’s now the gmail one.
Why am I posting this here well I took my time website off the web host was going in install UBUNTU then LAMP I really hope this actually gets a resolution rather than expect me to either a. Start from scratch with $50 credit rather than $100 because of what exactly? Please? It’s asking for my billing information and everything from the very beginning and if there was a phone number that I could call I would.
I live in Australia and I was looking forward to taking advantage of the benefits that come with digital Ocean hosting. I have other VPS service providers, but none they claim on Guora that is you know what your doing Digital Ocean is the best.
