Question

Get an Authorative namservers for linking my droplet to .IT domain

Hi,

I am trying to link my application to a domain I did buy on GoDDaddy. I initially followed this https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-point-to-digitalocean-nameservers-from-common-domain-registrars and this https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/how-to-point-godaddy-domains-to-digitalocean-year-2020 guides.

Once I try to change the name servers with the ones listed on the second guide I get an error which says that the domain name is invalid.

Speaking with GoDaddy support I got told…

You need to reach out to your hosting provider and get a pair of authorative name servers, you can see the requiremrnt of .IT domain

I am not sure what does it mean and even less how to get them. Can someone explain me and tell me how should I proceed? Thank you!

Hi @Vana,

If you wish to use DigitalOcean’s Nameservers, you can just add the following in your GoDaddy panel for your domain:

I can confirm the above should work for all kind of domain extensions, including .it domains. This is how everyone is actually pointing their nameservers. If the issues are still continuing, I’ll recommend continuing the ticket you opened with GoDaddy saying that you have authoritative nameservers and provide them the ones above.
