Question

Responsability limit for droplets.

Hey, i’ve a question that’s bugging me, let’s say that one of my friends needs a droplet to mount a web server but does not have a credit card, as I have a DO account, i create a droplet and add his ssh key to the droplet so that he could test his stuff. I’ve read https://www.digitalocean.com/help/policy/ and it states “This will get flagged by our backend and lead to your account being suspended and virtual servers destroyed”, so if he does something bad, all my account servers will go down? my account suspended and my life ruined? I guess that applies to team accounts also?

Hi Jorge,

You are correct that if someone is using your account to run a server, you are liable for the actions that they take as an account owner. It is definitely up to you to decide if the risk is worth it, and if your friend or any user of your account is trustworthy enough to become responsible for their actions.
