Restriction about DNS service usage

May 31, 2013 1.7k views
Hi, Currently I have a droplet up and running for my domain. Is there any restriction about the DNS usage? For example, is the following scenarios permitted Add a domain that is completely unrelated to the droplet. If I destroyed all the droplet, will the DNS service be suspended? Regards, Tony Tsang

It's okay to create a DNS record that points to an external host. The DNS service will not be suspended if you destroy all of your droplets.
Can you post an example of this? I am trying to point some subdomains to external hosts but instead the external host is treated like a subdomain.

For example the zone file show "downloads CNAME dxxxxxxxxxxjs.cloudfront.net" and dig outputs "downloads.my_domain.com. 599 IN CNAME dxxxxxxxxxxjs.cloudfront.net.my_domain.com."
@mikowals you have to suffix it with a dot so "downloads CNAME dxxxxxxxxxxjs.cloudfront.net."
