Is it possible to adjust the TTL value on DNS records? If not, is this a feature you plan to add in the future?

As of January '17, we’ve updated the control panel to allow for customization of TTLs on DNS records. We’re making updates to the API to allow for TTL customization soon as well to keep consistency.

Here is the link to go directly to your domains to begin changing values:

Has there been any progress on this after almost 3 years? I have the same problem as @tanja.

is there anything new in this matters ? icelandic domains cannot be assigned to a nameserver that has longer ttl than 24 hours, would like to have my domains controlled from digitalocean…

Any updates on this one?

I’m wondering about this, too. It’d be a really nice feature!

Same here.

Are there any updates on the time when it’ll be implemented? <br> <br>Thanks.

If you have a valid reason open up a support ticket and we’ll see what we can do

Would you consider lowering the default in the meantime?
