Hi to whoever reads this, I set up a simple A record for the subdomain remark42.mathiasfuchs.de in order to set up a small commenting system, redirecting to my IP 188.8.131.52 (same as the domain mathiasfuchs.de has always been directing to) but even after waiting for a few days, nameservers don’t seem to know about the subdomain remark42.mathiasfuchs.de. I expected to be able to
it, but to no avail. Thanks for help, Mathias

Hi there @matthew887mm,
It looks like that your DNS is not managed via DigitalOcean because your NameServers are currently set to:
You can check that via this website:
This means that you need to add all of your DNS changes via your DNS provider.
Another option would be to go to your Domain name provider and change your nameservers to the DigitalOcean nameservers. That way you will be able to manage your DNS zone via DigitalOcean directly.
Basically, the nameservers specified under your domain name provider, ‘tell’ your domain name which DNS zone to use.
Hope that this helps. Regards, Bobby
