Question

About custom name server

Hello! On my domain name registrar, I already created ns1.example.com and ns2.example.com The IP Address of my droplet is 104.236.190.195 Both ns1.example.com and ns2.example.com are pointing to this IP Address.

What I want to do is to use my custom name servers with my VPS at DigitalOcean. How can I do this? I read various tutorials on A and CNAME records, but this has left me very confused. I’d appreciate the help :)

Hello friend!

To complete the process, you will need to set up a DNS server on your droplet, and then create a DNS zone for any domains you wish to host DNS for at your custom nameservers. There is no one correct way to do this, there are many DNS server applications out there, and you should find the one that best fits your workflows.
