I work for a company that manages about 10 other companies, one of those companies has decided to get their own development team so we are working on moving their resources to their own DigitalOcean account.
Eventually we are going to transfer that companies domains over to their own domain provider account as well and I’m wondering what will happen.
Both the current DigitalOcean account and the new one will have DNS configurations for these domains, and the actual name server settings for those domains won’t change (They will still be ns1.digitalocean.com, ect.). How will DigitalOcean know which accounts DNS settings to use?
I want to believe that by some magic it will just work, otherwise you could just take over other DigitalOcean users DNS settings, which would be a huge security hole.
