Question

How would I setup server using 1&1 domin name?

Hi, I have recently registered a domain name with 1&1 which is very basic package that does not even provide any FTP server. Can I use Digital Ocean vrp hosting server keeping my 1&1 domain name without transferring/cancelling it with 1&1? I can not transfer the domain as there are some conditions attached to transfer the domain ( i.e 60 days) name. I do not want to cancel it either as I may not get back my domain name back in short time. If it is possible, please let how would set up the server in Digital Ocean using 1&1 domain name.

Thanks Rash

As far as I know that we only need to add the name servers in domain and rest is done by hosting provider. In my case, I am using Droplet but it is not working.
