Post enabled backups and IP address retention

July 9, 2014 1.9k views

I am not sure where to put a formal request for features. Highly needed are:

  1. Ways to upgrade to a backed up droplet AFTER creation.

  2. Guaranteed ways to recreate a droplet with original IP.

So there is some reason why the programmers don’t want to, but its possible, please consider.

We use UserVoice for feature requests. Those are both request that have already been submitted. You can add your “vote” to show support:

Provide the ability to turn backups on or off after a droplet has been created

Reserve IP Addresses / Make sure we can keep an IP if we recreate a droplet.
