Need help with DNS on a subdomain

December 4, 2014 810 views

I have a subdomain (air.riggingdojo.com) at goDaddy. It's set to forward to 104.131.167.119.

I have a droplet setup here as such...

air.riggingdojo.com 104.131.167.119 Active

And DNS as such...

A @ 104.131.167.119
NS ns1.digitalocean.com.
NS ns2.digitalocean.com.
NS ns3.digitalocean.com.

Zone File:
$ORIGIN air.riggingdojo.com.
$TTL 1800
air.riggingdojo.com. IN SOA ns1.digitalocean.com. hostmaster.air.riggingdojo.com. 1417665436 10800 3600 604800 1800
air.riggingdojo.com. 1800 IN NS ns1.digitalocean.com.
air.riggingdojo.com. 1800 IN NS ns2.digitalocean.com.
air.riggingdojo.com. 1800 IN NS ns3.digitalocean.com.
air.riggingdojo.com. 1800 IN A 104.131.167.119

air.riggingdojo.com can't be found in browser. I'm a newb, what am I doing wrong?

Thanks,
Chad

I am showing that your domain is pointed at

Name Server: NS1.A2WEBHOSTING.COM
Name Server: NS2.A2WEBHOSTING.COM

In order for your DNS services to work for your subdomain you would need to either:

1.) Point your domain to our DNS servers (ns1.digitalocean.com, ns2.digitalocean.com, ns3.digitalocean.com) or,

2.) Create NS records in your current DNS to delegate this subdomain to our nameservers.
