Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do that:
Step 1: Update nameservers at Gandi
Please note that it may take up to 48 hours for the changes to propagate.
Step 2: Add your domain to DigitalOcean and configure DNS records
Now you need to create appropriate DNS records. You’ll usually need at least an A record for the root domain and a CNAME record for the “www” subdomain:
Next, create a CNAME record for the “www” subdomain:
You can create additional DNS records as needed for other subdomains or services like email.
Please note that DNS changes can take up to 48 hours to propagate. Once the changes have propagated, your domain should be connected to DigitalOcean, and your website should be accessible using the new domain.
Step 3: Set up SSL
If you haven’t set up SSL yet, you can use Let’s Encrypt to obtain a free SSL certificate. DigitalOcean provides an easy way to set up Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates for your domains with their built-in integration. You can follow the guide here to set up Let’s Encrypt SSL: How to Secure Your Website with Let’s Encrypt on DigitalOcean
Hope that this helps!
