How can I set up DNS with Zpanel and DO?

July 9, 2014 4.9k views

I want to set up multiple domains on my droplet. I have installed zPanel on Ubuntu 12.04. I set up ns1, ns2, and n3 A records in the zPanel DNS manager. I also added ns1, ns2, and ns3 NS records in zPanel. My domain's DNS is set to ns1.mydomain.com, ns2.mydomain.com, and ns3.mydomain.com. The nameservers (ns1.mydomain.com etc) are set to the IP addresses of DigitalOcean's nameservers.

Will this work? Is this how it is supposed to work? It isn't working now, so what am I missing?

The nameservers (ns1.mydomain.com etc) are set to the IP addresses of DigitalOcean's nameservers.

Since they are set to DigitalOcean's nameservers, you will not be able to use zPanel's DNS manager. You must use DigitalOcean's DNS Manager instead.

But, you can set them to your droplet's IP address so you can use zPanel's DNS Manager.
