Hi, as soon as I completed the setup of my first droplet and managed to get my domain to work right I was asking about this scenario:
suppose there are two users, User1 and User2 that are registered on DigitalOcean and both own a droplet.
Now suppose User1 owns the domain example.com, dutifully points the name servers to DigitalOcean, and via the DigitalOcean dns control panel gets example.com to point to his own droplet.
User2, with a simple "whois example.com", knows that the name servers for example.com point to DigitalOcean so he try, with the help of the DigitalOcean dns control panel, to connect example.com to his own droplet, even though he is not the owner of the domain.
So how DigitalOcean knows who really is the owner of the domain?
