I think in general hosting providers don't verify that you actually own a domain before letting you instruct them and their nameservers to point it at your server or website. I've been able to do it at a hosting provider in the past. In most cases this is harmless, because either the owner of the domain set it up first (in which case your hosting provider ...

How did Digital Ocean verify I owned the domain I was adding to my server? Couldn't anyone do this? Could another customer have added my domain to their Digital Ocean account before I got around to it? Since none of the other answers have mentioned it: you probably had to tell your server which domain names to expect, but that does not actually cause those ...

Simple answer: They don't know, and they don't care, To make your website work, you need to point your domain to your droplet which you only can if you are the owner of that domain. If other person adds your domain on DO then they won't be able to point your domain to their droplet.

Sure, anyone could do this, but what would they get from it? Attaching the domain to the server doesn't give you any kind of access or ownership of the servers. You could point thedomainyouown.com at Google's IPs, but all you get from it is costs and no benefit.. thus it generally makes little sense to point your nameservers at anything else but your own ...

Couldn't anyone do this? You are missing one factor. Domain name registration and hosting are two different things even if your host will register your domain for you. A domain name has to be registered and pointed to an IP address before the domain name does anything. The hosting company does not generally care about the domain name registration except to ...

Yes, You can. you will have to add the NS records for the subdomain in the DNS Manager for your TLD (Top Level Domain). For Example: In DNS Manager for TLD add NS records Like. bla.example.com. 1799 IN NS ns1.subhosting.org. bla.example.com. 1799 IN NS ns3.subhosting.org. bla.example.com. 1799 IN NS ns2.subhosting.org.

If you can host it, build it, and copy right it, what are all these "pay for websites" places for? You can. Precisely what we did in the beginning: pay for a fast dedicated line and IP address (or setup dynamic IP addressing) buy a router build a server hardware setup the server software (OS, database server, webserver, security, automated processes) ...

You use NS records to connect your domain name registrar to your DNS host. You use A and CNAME records to at your DNS host to connect your domain name to the IP address of your web host. You could have: Domain.com -> NS ns1.hostinger.com -> A 1.1.1.1 Or you could have: Domain.com -> NS ns1.domain.com -> A 1.1.1.1 In this case both your ...

In 1and1 ionos FTP root folder, by default there's an index.html file which is causing the trouble and contains the troublesome "defaultsite" code snippet. If you install wordpress in the root directory, this file is served INSTEAD of the necessary wordpress index.php file. So, the solution is to rename the troublesome file to BACKUP_index.html (or delete ...

Well... I fixed it! But as it usually goes, I'm unsure of the exact thing that put it together. However, I will leave what I did over here, in hopes that it might help someone else in the future. From cPanel, I first changed my php version from 7.2 to 7.1. And it crashed my website. Therefore, I changed it back to 7.2, and voila! It simply works.
