DigitalOcean provides a variety of images that you can use to create Droplets, like Linux and FreeBSD distributions, container distributions, and 1-Click Applications.
In addition, you can take snapshots for on-demand disk images of Droplets and volumes, enable backups for automatic weekly Droplet images, and upload custom images to create Droplets with other operating systems or pre-packaged libraries. You can manage the images you create or upload to your account in the Images section of the control panel.
Users can now upload custom images using FTP URLs.
The following distributions have reached end of life. Their distribution images are now deprecated and will be removed from the control panel and API on 1 March 2020:
RancherOS 1.5.5 base image is now available in the control panel and via the API.
CentOS 8.1 base image is now available in the control panel and via the API.
