Custom Nameservers Сonfusion

Hi folks! I’m a total newbie with so mysterious DNS settings, and I just trying to setup my custom nameservers like that - ns1.mydomain.com. The first thing I did - I read a tutorial here on DO. Then another tutorial. But anyway I can’t understand where and which records I must add exactly. For example:

  1. In my domain registrar - which records I must add exactly?
  2. In my DO account - which records I must add exactly?

Any help will be much appreciated!!!

If you’re not very familiar with how DNS works, I’d avoid using vanity or branded nameservers and just using ns{1,2,3}.digitalocean.com as the name servers you’ve delegated authority to.
