API v1 has reached end-of-life. All subsequent requests to API v1 will respond with HTTP 410 (Gone) and an error message:

# HTTP/1.1 410 (Gone)
  "status": "ERROR",
  "error_message": "API v1 has reached end-of-life. Please use API v2.",
  "message": "API v1 has reached end-of-life. Please use API v2."

Version 2 of our API provides a more RESTful interface, OAuth support, and allows access to new DigitalOcean features like Team Account Management and Floating IPs. To learn more, please visit the API documentation.

Sunsetting API v1

Since releasing version 2 of our API nearly a year ago and officially bringing it out of beta last month, we’ve seen a tremendous uptake of usage by our community. As the ecosystem of tools and libraries continues to grow, we’ve decided that it is time to sunset version 1 of the API.

Don’t worry! We’re not going to pull the rug out from under you. In order to give everyone time to port their tools, version 1 will not be turned off until Monday, November 9, 2015.

With its (more) RESTful interface and features like OAuth support, v2 is both powerful and easy to use. Our developer documentation should give you all the information you need to begin the transition. If you have questions, you can always ask on our Community site or on Twitter.
