In case anyone was wondering: I had to email and they had to add the name servers themselves for some reason. Now it’s working fine

when I put in my digital ocean nameservers it gives me an error: <br> <br>“You can not perform the action you requested on that domain. The ID you gave has an out of range value”

I just bought a domain on What exactly does one have to do to get it working with my digital ocean account?

Your glue records are properly set up: <br> <br>I believe that’s all there is to it. Please let me know if there’s anything else you need help with :]
