How to set up DNS on Digital Ocean so that I can use ns1.digitalocean.com for a '.de' domain?

The GoDaddy techs claim your octets are bad. Obviously they have not been much help. So, is there a required setup I need on the DNS servers before sites like GoDaddy are able to set your nameservers as my DNS manager? danke

Hello,

There has been a similar question asked here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/problem-with-setting-digitalocean-nameserver-on-de-domain

The solution for the user there was, before changing the nameserver at your registrar you have to add the domain to your DigitalOcean account so the correct zone file is created.

Hope that this helps!

Best,

Hi @timd49e91b7dd017638ec5270f,

I don’t think you need anything specific. You just to have setup the Nameservers in GoDaddy’s system and then Add your Domain here

The docs can be of much help here:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/networking/dns/

Basically, it’s just adding the DigitalOcean Nameservers as Nameservers for your domain and then adding the domain here. I’ve not had any issues so far.
