"Is it possible to create a private virtual network between several instances?" Not yet; but you can follow the progress toward this capability at DigitalOcean's Customer Feedback forum: Private Back-End Network Support.

Hi there,

I just came across this question and decided to post a small update here in case that anyone else comes across this in 2020.

I would recommend considering the new DigitalOcean VPC networks.

VPC networks are completely isolated from both other customers and other VPCs on your own account. See here for more details:

It’s also worth pointing out that DigitalOcean private networks provided account level isolation since July 18, 2018. The big changes with the release of VPCs are:

  • You can create multiple VPCs that are isolated from each other
  • You can define the IP range for your VPCs yourself
