They just announced that you can upgrade your disk space if you do a “permanent” upgrade:

@leonardthong your IP will keep the same after the upgrade. About the 10k concurrent users you may need to create some caching platform, optimize your site/server and use services like Cloudflare.

Try Varnish4 and Cloudflare to start with, if possible get a couple of $5 droplets to load your traffic (both with Varnish installed) and make sure to use LEMP and not LAMP as the former is more efficient.

I think this is how it works: If you upgrade your package you can keep the IP; however, when you upgrade packages the disk space stays the same as what you originally purchased. There is a method to resize your disk space, but you lose your IP when you do that. I have read that DigitalOcean is working on fixing this. I’ve been here for a while and the Company does seem to take seriously what it’s users want – I’ve seen several positive changes. I figure they will get this fixed as well.
