I am currently reselling your droplets via api from my site. I want to add domain and domain records using api for droplets purchased by customers so that they can managed it also from my site. Can I tell customers to use nameservers instead of my domain nameservers.

If you are utilizing the api from your site to create, modify and destroy DNS records, there should be no issue utilizing our DNS platform for serve your needs.

Simply tell your customers to move their domains over to and the API should be able to handle the rest.
