Hi there @asuran01012020,

What you need to do in this case is to create Glue records via your GoDaddy account. GoDaddy refers to them as host names. To do that login to GoDaddy -> go to your domains -> then click on your domain -> go to DNS management -> scroll to the bottom and click on “Host names”.

Create your glue records there as normal.

For more information I could suggest going through this article here on How To Create Vanity or Branded Nameservers with DigitalOcean Cloud Servers .
