Hi there,

Can I conncet my domain to the droplet with changing the current A records in the DNS settings? Or is it only possible through nameserver change?

Hi there @HappyAquaFish,

You don’t necessarily need to change your nameservers, you can change your A record only and point it to the Droplet’s IP address.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
