Droplet resolves to ns1.digitalocean.com which will not work wint mail-in-a-box how to fix?
I have been following the DO tutorial on installing mail-in-a-box.
I have no opportunity to actually goto the mail-in-a-box install step until my droplet resolves using the prescribed DNS.
Currently the droplet resolves using DO DNS (ns1.digitalocean.com).
Below I'm using the men and mice online dig application.

The tutorial expressly points to using this template: ns1.box.example.com and ns2.box.example.com
The statement above will never happen until I correct /etc/hostname.
Using the DO prescribed step:
sudo echo "box.example.com" > /etc/hostname
returns permission denied though I am logged in as root.
I have been working this issue for about a week.
What to do?
