I changed my NS but now I have 2 different sets of nameservers

4 days ago I changed some of my domains NS from digitalocean to cloudflare. When I use dns checker to see if it’s updated I see some locations around the world still have the old digital ocean NS.

What can I do to force change those?


Did some research in the forums and someone suggested this linux command sudo systemd-resolve --flush-caches but it didn’t work.

Hello @salamwaddah,

You’ll need to change the Nameservers of your domain with your registrar. You should only have the Nameservers of cloudflare and none of DigitalOcean’s.

This isn’t done through your droplet as the droplet doesn’t hold your DNS zone.
