I was wondering if DigitalOcean was considering supporting OpenBSD and/or FreeBSD

We don't have any plans at the moment to support any of the BSDs. If you want to show your support for add these, I suggest you add your "vote" over on this UserVoice request:

"If you want to show your support for add these, I suggest you add your "vote" over on this UserVoice request:" >> over 2400 votes ATM. I'd say there's plenty of 'support' now! ;)

Now the counter shows: 2721 after my (3) votes.

Just out of curiosity: how many votes roughly are you guys looking at in order to consider support for FreeBSD?

  • After almost 2 years, lots of votes and no action, I switched to another host for my xBSD hosting.

    Don't hold your breath waiting for it to happen here.

I'm also changing to another company that supports FreeBSD. Two years and nothing was done. I contacted them and they seem not to care about this.

I am a big fan of Digital Ocean, but the fact that they don't offer FreeBSD forces me to host nearly all of my servers somewhere else. Please add support for FreeBSD!
