Hi there @steveClam,

You could either change your nameservers to the DigitalOcean nameservers and start making your DNS via your DigitalOcean control panel.

You can follow the steps on how to do that here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-point-to-digitalocean-nameservers-from-common-domain-registrars

If you prefer to keep your Nameservers as they are, then you can change your A record to point to your Droplet’s IP address via your NameCheap DNS zone.

Hope that this helps, let me know if you have any questions.
Regards,
Bobby

DNS is the naming system that is used to bind a domain name to a web server. In this guide, we will change the nameservers for a domain that we have registered and point it to a DigitalOcean Droplet.
