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:

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
