Would we get the IPs by executing: <br><pre>nslookup ns1.digitalocean.com</pre> <br><pre>nslookup ns2.digitalocean.com</pre> <br><pre>nslookup ns3.digitalocean.com</pre> <br> <br>???

@Pablo: Yes - that would work as well.

@raiyu, <br> <br><pre>You would need to go to your registrar and register ns1.mysite.com and ns2.mysite.com as nameservers and point them to the IPs where you have setup your nameservers…</pre> <br>Would we be able to point ns1.mysite.com, ns2.mysite.com, and ns3.mysite.com to the IPs of ns1.digitalocean.com, ns2.digitalocean.com, and ns3.digitalocean.com? Would that work?
