Create ONLYOFFICE Droplet


Self-host your own private cloud office suite. ONLYOFFICE provides you with the most secure way to create, edit and collaborate on business documents online.
With the free open-source ONLYOFFICE Community Edition, you are able to handle multiple processes: document editing and real-time co-authoring, managing files, projects, customers, mail and calendars, building diversified communication hub.
Powerful ONLYOFFICE online editors for text documents, spreadsheets and presentations are highly compatible with .docx, .xlsx, and .pptx files. Other popular formats such as .doc, .odt, .rtf, .txt, .pdf, .xls, .ods, .csv, .ppt, .odp, etc. are also supported. You are able to edit complex docs using multiple styling and formatting tools, e.g. shapes, charts, Text Art, drop caps, footnotes, bookmarks, mirror and gutter margins, and more. The pre-installed plugin set as well as the possibility to add your own plugins allows you to implement extra functionality.
With multiple collaborative features you can work on the same document together with your teammates: real-time and paragraph-locking co-editing modes, track changes, comments, built-in chat, version history.
Various productivity tools such as mail, projects, CRM, multi-format media player, Gantt chart, time tracking, reports, calendar, chat, blogs, forums, polls, and others ensure greater team workflow.
The 1-click version of ONLYOFFICE on DigitalOcean is intended for up to 20 simultaneous connections - the maximum number of documents that can be edited at the same time. When the maximum value is reached, each next document will open in read-only mode.
