Having some difficulties settings up vanity nameservers


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: And i have setup my Glue records (from GoDaddy), and i’ve edited the required settings on DigitalOcean

here are my DNS settings: A 3600 A 3600 A 3600 A * 3600 A 3600 NS 1800 NS 1800 NS 1800

Next, i purchased a seperate domain name from OnyDomains to link it to one my test websites, i entered and, 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 ?

Thank you!

Hey there!

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
