I’ve recently purchased a domain name from GoDaddy for a Wordpress site and to use it with DigitalOcean I changed the nameservers from GoDaddy to DO. However during this change there was no point at which I had to link my GoDaddy and DO accounts thus from my limited understanding it seems to be totally possible for a malicious actor on DO to use my domain name by adding it to one of their projects. However this just seems like too simple of an exploit to be possible so can anyone tell me what am I missing?
