DigitalOceanCreate Droplet

You already know how you like your Digital Ocean Droplets configured, so why not simplify creating new ones? With this automation, you’ll get to pick the configuration you like and then automatically create Droplets from it just by sending an email.

How it Works:

Zapier will give you a special @zapiermail.com email address which you can customize and save to your address book, and will let you pick the Digital Ocean Droplet configuration you’d like while setting up this automation. Then, to create a new Droplet, all you have to do is send an email to that address with the Droplet name you want as the subject, and Zapier will automatically create the Droplet for you.

What You Need:

  1. An email app
  2. A Digital Ocean account

Got that? Then let's get started.
