  • Spaces now automatically delete any incomplete multipart uploads older than 90 days to prevent billing and to free up storage.

February 2023

February 2

  • Newer Spaces buckets now have an improved limit of 800 total operations per second. To check whether a bucket has this new limit, see our Spaces rate limits.

October 2022

October 28

  • Spaces and the Spaces CDN now support HTTP/2 clients. HTTP/2-conformant clients now receive HTTP/2 responses, while others receive HTTP/1.1 responses. In certain cases, such as when an HTTP/2 request has a formatting error, it may downgrade to HTTP/1.1 for operational reasons, as permitted by the HTTP/2 specification.

  • Spaces no longer supports downgrading TLS connections to TLS 1.1 or using cipher suites with SHA1 or DHE. Spaces currently returns soft S3 error messages and will gradually transition to hard TLS errors over a 4-6 week period.

March 2022

March 28

  • Spaces no longer supports downgrading TLS connections to TLS 1.0, and will transition from returning soft S3 error messages to hard TLS errors over the next month.

  • Managed Let’s Encrypt certificates will begin using Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) instead of RSA. ECDSA is equally secure and more computationally efficient than RSA. ECDSA certificates follow the shorter root chain and aren’t rooted using the DST Root CA X3 cross-sign which expired on 30 September 2021.

    As we roll out this change, new Let’s Encrypt certificates provisioned for DigitalOcean Load Balancers and Spaces will increasingly use ECDSA and existing certificiates secured with RSA will be secured with ECDSA upon auto-renewal. This change doesn’t require any action from DigitalOcean customers.

October 2021

  • We have deprecated TLS DHE ciphers for all load balancers.

  • Spaces users no longer need to cancel their Spaces subscription via the Spaces UI when they want to stop using Spaces.

Overage charges still apply if they were incurred before deletion of the last Space.
