Question

How can I change the SOA address in DNS settings?

I’ve registered a domain (almost). To continue the registration, I need to set an existing email address in my SOA record. Currently it’s hostmaster.[domain.com], by default in dns settings. But as I saw, I couldn’t change this. What can I do?

Hi! Unfortunately it is not possible to edit the SOA address right now. Please vote for this functionality on our suggestions board to show your support and to get notified whenever there’s an update.

DigitalOcean’s DNS is a free service and this may be why DigitalOcean has not taken action. Use another DNS service like AWS’s Route 53
