Is there a way to control the TTL of the DNS entries?
1 comment
  • FYI for those trying to register .is domain names if you open a support ticket Digital Ocean will update the TTL to 86400 for you. They did include this caveat though:


    Thank you for contacting us. I have updated the TTL. Please note it can take up to 24 hours for it to update.

    Please keep in mind our system can sometimes reset this when you make updates to the DNS. We understand this is frustrating and are looking for a resolution. However, it’s rare that someone wants a TTL to be high and so we default to 15 minutes.

    It’s not often that it resets the TTL, but I did want you to be aware; in case it comes up. Do not hesitate to reach out to us if you see it and we will gladly set it back!

    Let us know if you have any other questions!

Would be useful indeed...
Looking forward to this feature. We really need this

any news on this?

Is this implemented yet?

Use a DNS service, like Cloudflare.

As of January ‘17, we’ve updated the control panel to allow for customization of TTLs on DNS records. We’re making updates to the API to allow for TTL customization soon as well to keep consistency.

Here is the link to go directly to your domains to begin changing values: https://cloud.digitalocean.com/networking/domains
