Nameservers recursive queries

Hi,

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 mywebsite.com.
$TTL 1800
mywebsite.com. IN SOA ns1.digitalocean.com. hostmaster.mywebsite.com.

mywebsite.com. 1800 IN A (droplet ip address)
ns1.mywebsite.com. 1800 IN A 173.245.58.51
ns2.mywebsite.com. 1800 IN A 173.245.59.41
ns3.mywebsite.com. 1800 IN A 198.41.222.173
mywebsite.com. 1800 IN NS ns1.mywebsite.com.
mywebsite.com. 1800 IN NS ns2.mywebsite.com.
mywebsite.com. 1800 IN NS ns3.mywebsite.com.

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,
