How Do I Use DigitalOcean As My Nameserver?
I didn’t really know how to title the question because it’s really more than what I titled this post, but that’s what explanations are for I guess. Here’s what I would like to do.
Someone very adept as fiddling with DNS records would be ideal for answering this question.
Here’s my topology so-to-speak.
I have a domain that I would like to split across two hosts. Here’s SPECIFICALLY what I mean.
I want to host example.com at one host and sub.example.com at another (DigitalOcean).
Now, as I understand it (it’s been years since I have messed with DNS records), I could achieve this by doing the following …
Setup my registrar’s DNS records like so …
example.com => IP of host1
sub.example.com => IP of host2 (DigitalOcean droplet)
In order to pull this off, I would have to tell the registrar that I want to use their nameserver. That would be step one. Then, configure the DNS records as shown above.
I’m just really not sure how I would do this.
