I am trying to migrate my domain from AWS Route53 to DO. I created the domain on DO and all the A records that are in Route53. Also added one new A record on DO as a test A record.
When I do a whois on this domain, I still am getting AWS NS servers. In some nslookup sites, it does show up as DO. Being in this limbo state is very unsettling. Is this just an inherently broken process of the Internet or is there a way I can remedy this so that the Internet converges on the DO NS servers? I’m hoping I missed a step somewhere. I did notice that the Route53 domain has a SOA record… does this need to be changed too?
