Nameservers recursive queries


I have setup vanity nameservers using my DO control panel but intoDNS tool is reporting recursive queries and my domain is not fully resolved yet …

Here is my zone configuration file:

$ORIGIN $TTL 1800 IN SOA 1800 IN A (droplet ip address) 1800 IN A 1800 IN A 1800 IN A 1800 IN NS 1800 IN NS 1800 IN NS

Can someone please tell me what is missing?

Many thanks

Hey there,

I don’t see an issue with the DNS zone itself, but running your own name servers (vanity name servers) also includes registering the name servers (glue records). Each registrar has a unique method for this setting. Usually it’s buried and not easy to find.

You can also open a support ticket and we can certainly help you a long further and work with you to test and confirm your settings.

Happy coding,
