Add additional plans/upgrades

I'd like to either have additional plans in between the existing ones for additional freedom of resource management, or an option to make specific upgrades instead of upgrading the whole package. For example, I'm running a game's masterserver on the 512mb droplet, and while RAM, disk space and bandwidth seem to be more than enough, 1 core CPU is proving to be insufficient. So the only viable option will be 15$ more expensive, and the rest of resources will likely go to waste.

    I have many clients with media rich websites, some holding over 300Gb of data at the moment. An addon for extra storage would be very nice!

    I'd like to second this. I think you should leave issues like this open even if they are infeasible now. Who'se to say down the road you can't manage to just drop prices across the board anyway allowing for better priced 2-core plans.

    I'm on the $5 but could use a second core, while I will probably upgrade, I'd love to have some in-betweens. Perhaps there is a way in the future, with new hardware.

    Unfortunately we've already sized all of the resources based on what we can best allocate to customers on a price vs cost basis.

    If we allowed customers to size things more efficiently they certainly would be able to do so but unfortunately the price would be 2x - 3x higher, so from an overall cost perspective you already have optimal pricing.
