Hi, I have a domain name of ISNIC.

you may already know, digitalocean’s nameserver 1 and 2 are same ip address.


Because of this, ISNIC domain doesn’t delegate to digitalocean server.

In ISNIC domain restriction,
1) At least two different nameservers must be specified (and the hosts must not resolve to the same IP address).

Why ns1 and ns2 are same ip address?

Where did you get those IP addresses? They’re incorrect.

$ mhost ns1.digitalocean.com
ns1.digitalocean.com.  (unsigned)  1800  A
ns1.digitalocean.com.  (unsigned)  1800  AAAA  2400:cb00:2049:1::adf5:3a33
$ mhost ns2.digitalocean.com
ns2.digitalocean.com.  (unsigned)  1800  A
ns2.digitalocean.com.  (unsigned)  1800  AAAA  2400:cb00:2049:1::adf5:3b29
$ mhost ns3.digitalocean.com
ns3.digitalocean.com.  (unsigned)  300  A
ns3.digitalocean.com.  (unsigned)  300  AAAA  2400:cb00:2049:1::c629:dead
  • Ooooops..
    When I put nameserver to onlydomains management page,
    they show me same address.
    but they’re incorrect..

    Thanks! I’m gonna change wrong address to correct ip4 address

Hello, how are you? The nameservers are always going to be “ns1.digitalocean.com”, “ns2.digitalocean.com”, etc. right?
And where are the different ip of my server?. Since I have only one ipv4 and one ipv6.

Thank you!
