Setting up one "droplet" per client

Hi Community,

I was just wondering if the following is possible with DigitalOcean:

  • I need to register programmaticaly one 5$ box from DigitalOcean for each of my clients
  • I need to purchase a domain programmaticaly
  • I need to install languages programmaticaly (i.e. between: php, java, .net, …)
  • I need to install apps programmaticaly (i.e. between: drupal, magento, wordpress, …)
  • I need to install search engine programmaticaly (i.e. elastic search, solr, hadoop, …)

So if I can do all this via the API,

How do I know how much costs a domain, how much does all my boxes (or droplets?) cost so I can bill my clients accordingly?

Looking forward to working with DO,

Well I’d suggest using namecheap and use their api to register domains. DO API: Namecheap API:
