We are currently developing our DNS management solution. Expected beta launch date will be in early July. Please stay tuned for announcements.
We're getting close to launching our public beta of our DNS service management watch out this week or early next week for the announcement.

Thanks
Any word on this, as it's well past early July? I'd love to be able to use it.
We've finished the majority of the front-end functionality and will be releasing it shortly for public BETA.

Thanks.
I would like to ask the same question.
Coming soon, we just got back to NYC this week from TechStars and its the next feature we are releasing, late this week!

Thanks
You promised to do at the end of last week. DNS is very necessary.

P.S. Why all the posts have one date and time?
What he means to ask is why all the comments have the same date? And what is the real no BS ETA on dns management?
All posts in this topic have date July 2nd, 2012 15:52
Fixing up the error on the same date for replies, it's linked to the question instead of the answers, next deploy will fix that, and we'll be launching DNS beta in about 2-3 hours.

Sorry for the delays! We're still getting back into our groove post TechStars but we're finally getting on track.
Take your time guys, and do it right. =)
Seems like DNS is available already. Check it out after you login.

We have publicly launched our DNS management console and will be adding support for reverse DNS PTR records in the near future.
So I clicked on dns, add domain, it asks for name and IP address, I put in the domain and IP address - then it assigns NS recoords as NS1 through NS3 at Digital Ocean.

Am I correct that I have to change the name servers on the domain at the domain host to use this?
Yes-- they need to be changed at the domain registrar as well. You can find all the instructions to set up the host name here:

This article walks you through setting up the DNS for your site. The tutorial includes steps to set up an A records, point your nameservers, and provides some information about MX records.
I can't change the name servers because my registrar is NIC.AR
There are different regulations for certain top level domain registrar that have specific requirements for where DNS can be hosted.

Our nameservers will work for the majority of top-level domains, however, we do not yet have plans to register additional domains for countries that have very specific requirements on how DNS is regulated.
According to the https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-set-up-a-host-name-with-digitalocean article I tried to set up the cname using the www -> @ example given. The record appears in the settings briefly and then after a minute perhaps it disappears. I've tried numerous times and it still does not work. I guess I can enter another A record for the www .

Otherwise - Everything is working wonderfully!

Thanks!

How many domains can we add to DNS editor? Any limit?
There aren't any limits currently.
