DNS security and domain hijacking

If I point my domain to Digital Ocean’s name servers, could someone else surreptitiously create their own DO account and create DNS entries for my domain, thereby hijacking it? What stops that from happening?

Don’t point your domain to DO’s nameservers before you added the domain to your account.

Got it. Thanks for responding.
