DigitalOcean to charge 15% service tax to India customers

Moving forward, charges on your invoices—including this month’s invoice—will increase due to a new ruling by the Government of India. We know this a sudden change so we want to help you with this month’s invoice and aid you in updating your account information

First, if are a business with a Sevice Tax ID, we ask that you enter it into the Service Tax ID form on the Billing page.

The new ruling has determined that the Service Tax of 15% is applicable to cloud services including DigitalOcean starting December 1 (this month) for any account with a tax location in India. You will see this increase reflected on your next invoice on January 1, 2017--unless you are a business entity that has inputted their Service Tax ID. You can read more about the ruling, Service Tax IDs for businesses, and details in our FAQs.

We know this is sudden and want to help you adjust. Therefore, we are adding a credit to this month’s invoice to offset the 15% increase. You will see the 15% credit added to your January 1, 2017 invoice.

Please see our Support page for further questions and screenshots on how to update your Service Tax ID. As always, we are here to help.

Sincerely, Team DigitalOcean

Droplet Tagging and more


As developers ourselves, we know how important it is to stay organized when working on and managing applications. Tags are a simple and powerful way to help with:
  • Deployments and infrastructure management/automation
  • Managing resource ownership
  • Monitoring and automation
  • Logging and data retention policies


High Memory Droplets start with 16GB and scale up to 224GB of RAM with smaller ratios of local storage and CPU relative to standard Droplets. They are priced at $7.50 per-gigabyte of RAM per month. These Droplets are optimized for RAM-intensive workloads such as high-performance databases like MongoDB, in-memory caches like Redis or Memcache, or search indexes.


You can now create snapshots of block storage volumes! Volume snapshots act just in the same way as Droplet snapshots do — you can use them to make backups or maintain a certain state. Block storage volume snapshots are priced at a rate of $0.05/GB/month.


Celebrate the spirit of open source software with us. Contribute to GitHub-hosted open source projects in October for the chance to win a limited-edition Hacktoberfest T-shirt.

There’s only four days left to join thousands of developers from around the world to work on bug fixes, feature releases, and documentation updates for GitHub-hosted open source projects.

July Product Update


lock Storage in NYC1, SFO2, more soon!
Scale disk space independent of compute with highly available SSD Block Storage volumes from 1GB to 16TB. Volumes have a straightforward price of $0.10/GB per month.

For more details, read the Block Storage blog post, see our growing list of tutorials on the subject, or try it for yourself via the cloud control panel, API or the command-line interface: DOCTL.

Live Snapshots for Droplets
Snapshots just got a lot better: You can now create snapshots without powering down your Droplet! Use snapshots to transfer droplets between regions, send to other users, and restore your droplet to a previous state.

More Datacenters: Bangalore and San Francisco
We opened our Bangalore datacenter in May, bringing droplets to the fastest growing ecosystem of startups and entrepreneurs, India. Our second San Francisco datacenter (SFO2) opened in July, greatly expanding capacity in one of our most popular regions.

RethinkDB Horizon One-Click
Recently, the team at RethinkDB released Horizon, a realtime, open-source backend for JavaScript apps. Our One-Click Application provides a convenient way to get started with Horizon and get your RethinkDB-powered projects up and running quickly.

Block Storage is here! Scale storage independently of your

up to 16TB — $0.10/GB per month



Highly Available and Redundant
Block Storage stores data on hardware that is separated from the Droplet and replicated multiple times across different racks, reducing the chances of data loss in the event of hardware failure.

Scalable and Flexible
You can easily scale up and resize your Storage volumes from 1GB to 16TB and move them between Droplets via the control panel or API. As your storage needs grow, you can expand an existing volume or add more volumes to your Droplet.

Reliable and Secure
All the data is encrypted at rest and transmitted to the Droplets over isolated networks.

Multiple Regions
You can create Block Storage volumes right now in NYC1 and our new SFO2 region. FRA1 is next in line and will be available in the coming weeks. We’re working quickly to expand to other regions. More updates to come.

Getting Started
When you log in to your dashboard, you will see a new Volumes tab that has an overview of your volumes:


You will also be able to add volumes right from a Droplet’s page


Once you have a volume attached to your Droplet, use the simple copy and paste instructions displayed on your dashboard to configure it. For more information on working with your Block Storage volumes, read our community tutorials about Linux filesystems and tools and our introduction to Block Storage.

Like all DigitalOcean resources, you can also automate provisioning using our brand new volumes API or doctl, the official DigitalOcean command-line client.

Introducing Our Bangalore Region: BLR1



We’re excited to announce the launch of our newest datacenter region: BLR1, located in Bangalore, India.

BLR1 includes the same full range of features found in every other region, including 40GbE networking and the latest model of SSDs.

Pricing will also remain consistent across all of our datacenters worldwide, including Bangalore, with cloud servers starting at $5 USD per month.

SGP Network Maintenance 2016-05-16 16:00 UTC

During the above window the network team will be performing some proactive software upgrades on network infrastructure in SGP1. These upgrades are to enable new features to improve the performance and resilience of the network platform.

Expected Impact:
During the change window users will be unable to perform Droplet actions (e.g. create, destroy, resize) for approximately 30 minutes. There will be no impact to already running Droplets.

Approximately 30 minutes prior to the maintenance we will post an update on status.digitalocean.com and periodic updates will follow as work progresses.

Please do not hesitate to contact support if you have any additional questions or concerns. You may do so by opening a ticket, or replying to this email.

Thank you,
DigitalOcean Network Team

Check out what we've been working on

Here’s What’s New
We’ve been busy building better ways to help you deploy and manage your Droplets at scale. We’re excited to share some recent improvements you might have missed!


UI Improvements
“Multiple Droplet Create” feature
We spend a lot of time trying to understand how users interact with our control panel and we’ve noticed that spinning up multiple Droplets can be a tedious task. So we’ve made it easier for you to scale your infrastructure by launching up to 10 Droplets in just a few clicks (or a simple API call).
Control Panel Improvements
Our product design team has been shipping iterative improvements to the control panel. Recent updates include:
  • Improved notifications
  • Enable backups for active Droplets
  • More intuitive graphs
  • New window for the web console
If you haven’t seen it in a while, check out the updates to your control panel.


Droplet tagging via the API
Another problem we’ve been tackling is the management of large numbers of Droplets. A first step is extending our API to support Droplet tagging. Tagging, combined with configuration management tools like Chef, Puppet, Salt, and Ansible, can offer a powerful mechanism for inventorying and automating your systems.

New Command Line Interface (CLI)
As developers ourselves, we spend a lot of time on the command line. That’s why we’ve introduced doctl, a command line interface for managing all of your DigitalOcean resources. It is completely open source and available on GitHub. We’re excited to be able to share this with our community and look forward to collaborating on building a tool we hope you’ll love.

Block storage
We’ve been working on a block storage service that allows users to attach expandable storage to your Droplet. It will be available to all this summer, but you can request beta access now.
