I have a domain on Cloudflare <>. I have full control over it.

I would like to have a subdomain on DigitalOcean, I want the digital ocean nameservers to be authoritative for that subdomain.

I added a few NS entries to cloudflare for apps in the

I added the subdomain to Digital Ocean.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem as though this worked. Is this even possible?

You need to add the new domain to DigitalOcean after that it should give you two nameservers which you must enter them at cloudflare like this

NS      <DO NameServer1>
NS      <DO NameServer1>

Now it should be working, to make sure use this command

dig +trace

It should show that at the end DO NameServer is serving your request.

I hope it helps.
