Im working on a web app which lets people create their own websites, with the ability to link their own domain names to my web app, and ive decided to use custom nameservers (the users have to enter my custom nameservers in their registrar settings to link their domain names to my web app). I followed the tutorial on this link: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-create-vanity-or-branded-nameservers-with-digitalocean-cloud-servers And i have setup my Glue records (from GoDaddy), and i’ve edited the required settings on DigitalOcean
here are my DNS settings: A ns3.myapp.com 188.8.131.52 3600 A ns2.myapp.com 184.108.40.206 3600 A ns1.myapp.com 220.127.116.11 3600 A *.myapp.com 18.104.22.168 3600 A myapp.com 22.214.171.124 3600 NS myapp.com ns3.myapp.com. 1800 NS myapp.com ns1.myapp.com. 1800 NS myapp.com ns2.myapp.com. 1800
Next, i purchased a seperate domain name from OnyDomains to link it to one my test websites, i entered ns1.myapp.com and ns2.myapp.com, i waited for a very long while until the DNS records have changed, but it doesnt work. Is there anything wrong with my DNS settings ?

It sounds like you have things properly configured with your DNS. However without knowing the domains being used it is hard to confirm that. Rather then sharing those here I’d recommend opening a ticket with our support team that can double check your domains DNS configuration and offer further insights.
Hope that helps! Nate
