Question

Changing to own domain nameservers

I need some help to create a specific name server so domain will just change to my domain name server instead of ns1, ns2, ns3.digitalocean.com. Also I am using the control panel Webuzo. So I wonder if I set it to I just need to add domain inside webuzo user panel instead?

I had refer to this: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-create-vanity-or-branded-nameservers-with-digitalocean-cloud-servers, but unable to get it to work.

What I had done are as follow:

DO DNS Manager: A @ [my droplet IP] A ns1 173.245.58.51 A ns2 173.245.59.41 A ns3 198.41.222.173 NS ns1.mydomain.com NS ns2.mydomain.com NS ns3.mydomain.com

Webuzo Nameservers Setting: Primary IP: [my droplet IP] Primary Domain: mydomain.com NS1: ns1.mydomain.com NS2: ns2.mydomain.com

Registar Control Panel: mydomain.com DNS: ns1.digitalocean.com ns2.digitalocean.com ns3.digitalocean.com

I also change the GLUE Record to: ns1.mydomain.com 173.245.58.51 ns2.mydomain.com 173.245.59.41 ns3.mydomain.com 198.41.222.173

I then change the DNS for another domain which I have: mydomain2.com DNS: ns1.mydomain.com ns2.mydomain.com ns3.mydomain.com

In Webuzo User Panel: Add domain: mydomain2.com

I wonder if the above are all correct and are all the things that I need to setup. But when I key in the link of mydomain2.com in browser, it still shows my registar page instead of the a page error or some page that I place into the server under mydomain2.com folder.

Can anyone please guide me on this? Thanks in advanced.

This question was answered by @mandarin:

I recently setup my own DNS using Digital Ocean Servers and my own domain name, it seems to be working. I have a few domains running that are using it.

One step I had to do that I didn’t see in any docs or forums was…

You have to let you domain name registrar know that you have name servers on that domain name and give them the IPs for the name servers. Then you have to wait for those to update.
