Running VPNServer on digitalocean

Dear all,

I want to create droplet on digitalocean to sell VPN service, But I’m afraid people use this vpn for downloading torrent…(They can’t store on the server - they can’t login to server through SSH)

What should I do? Is downloading torrent through this service is legal? As I know just storing the torrent on the server is illegal…??

Best Regards,
