Hi @reqviemua,

This does seem like an issue with your Domain Registrar - namesilo. You’ll need to contact and ask them to help you change the nameservers to :

Unfortunately, DigitalOcean does not currently provide domain registration services. To use DigitalOcean DNS, you need to register a domain name with a registrar and update your domain’s NS records to point to DigitalOcean’s name servers.
