0 Do I still need to point to the DigitalOcean name servers from my registrar if I will not manage the records in DO?

I’m new to DNS.

Do I still need to point to the DigitalOcean name servers from my registrar if I will not manage the records in DO?

Or I just need to point the domain from the domain registrar to my droplet’s IPv4? If yes then is there other benefits of adding the domain in DO?

You don’t need to point your domain’s name servers to DO unless you want to manage the domain from DO or you want to use the DO load balancer.
