DO Ideas 2

More RAM for the basic $5 a month package.

It would be awesome if we could get just a bit more ram for that package! Everything else is perfect with it.

    If RAM were free we'd definitely add more! But for now the $5/mo plan is staying with 512MB. Thanks!

    This is the main reason because i will leave DigitalOcean next month. Competitors already started offering 1GB RAM and also better CPU for the basic 5$ plan. DO also started a campaing against swap usage, so definetly is time to leave.

    Sadly... i have to say bye bye to DigitalOcean.

    we are more than happy with prices, I think the OP knows they are just being cheeky

    I agree, I made a longer post that further explains why here:
    http://digitalocean.uservoice.com/forums/136585-digitalocean/suggestions/5636345-upgrade-the-5-server-to-1gb-of-ram

    The ability to run a fully functional server even at a the $5/moth option would be awesome. Nobodies starter package offers this yet, they all start with a 512mb option. 1gb would allow everyone to set up a fully functional web / mail server with some sort of server management software. If they want to add more storage or need more bandwidth then they should upgrade, but everyone should be able to have a fully functional server out of the box.
