DNS policy for externally hosted sites

  • Posted January 23, 2015

Sorry if this is somewhere else, but I had trouble locating an existing DO DNS policy on the site.

Is there a policy against adding domains that will point to external hosting or must they all point to DO droplets?

We’re a mixed shop with Wordpress, .Net, and some older Coldfusion sites. We’d like to migrate the wordpress sites over to DO, experiment with Railo to see about bringing the Coldfusion over later, then maybe do .Net after the linux port. If we had all our DNS mangement consolidated on our DO account, but only a few sites hosted at DO, would this violate TOS?



You can find the ToS at the bottom of the website, under the link: Terms, Privacy, & Copyright Security [sic]

It is here:

There is no policy specifically for DNS.

Thanks for clearing that up!

As long as your DigitalOcean account is active you can add any domains you manage to our DNS system whether they are pointed at droplets, at outside servers or at a mixture of the two.
