Question

Does DigitalOcean DNS support DNSSEC, and how do I turn it on?

So lets assume I’m using ns1.digitalocean.com, ns2.digitalocean.com, and ns3.digitalocean.com as my nameserves for example.com. Now how do I enable DNSSEC for example.com, assuming this is even supported with these nameserves?

Hello there,

Is there any news related to DNSSEC for the DGO networking service?

Actually, it’s a really hot topic and since 2015 it should have been implemented 🔥

The fact that Digital Ocean name servers don’t support DNSSEC can be a major issue. Some registrars will enable DNSSEC by default, and if you use Digital Ocean name servers you’ll get inconsistent resolving results, such as Google public DNS and many other resolvers not being able to lookup records for your domain. Beware before you use DO name servers in production!!

DigitalOcean must give high priority to this feature, please add DNSSEC :)
