Hi, I have a Belgian DNS. I asked a transfer code at DNS Belgium. I also linked the dns on digitalocean to the DNS. What else am I suppose to do? Where can I further complete this process? This is my first time doing this so I’m sure I am overseeing a couple of things.

Hi @jeffliekens7

You have to change the Name Servers (NS) at your domain registrar. They should point to the following Name Servers:

Then you can create the DNS records in the DigitalOcean control panel. You might have to wait a day or two for changes to become active, since it takes time to move Name Servers.

You can lookup your domain records by running these commands:

dig NS
dig A

If you need further help, then it would be helpful if you posted your domain.
