How is digitalocean secure in directing traffic of my domain name to my droplet?
(Sorry for lack of proper technical language)
On my domain name registrar (godaddy.com) I set up the DNS for my website name (say example.com) to be ns1/2/3.digitalocean.com.
Then I went to the DO control panel and added the domain example.com.
But this got me thinking, can’t someone hijack my website traffic? It seems that I can enter any domain name in the DO control panel. If someone else entered example.com, how does DO know which IP to direct traffic to? Is it a first come first serve type of thing?
