For this form of the headword noun, dorodo/kos, see also under sigma 1228, in ps.-Zonaras' entry which echoes the present one, and in Etymologicum Magnum 731.10. LSJ s.v. nevertheless registers it as dourodo/kos, as in Harpocration sigma52 Keaney. On the dor-/dour- discrepancy see generally LSJ s.v. do/ru; and compare the formally related (but substantively different) compound at delta 1433. As regards the present headword, the -dokos element implies housing, receiving, supporting.
