problem adding domain with centos webpanel, DO and godaddy

DigitalOcean DNS Control Panels

I instaled CentOS WebPanel on my droplet, registered my domain at goaddy, changed NS to DO nameservers, and at DO DNS link i added my domain with ip adress of droplet. That went all smooth, and i successfuly accessed my WebPanel admin via mydomain.com:2030

But when I create user in WebPanel and then logged as that user and go to section where to add other domain, then I successfully add domain in WebPanel, I also change NS to DO nameservers at godaddy, but i cant access the page..even i cannot ping it. Where is a problem?

Do i need to setup my own NS? what NS i should use at the initial configuration of WebPanel?

This is not happenig just with CentOS WebPanel, also with, sentora, zpanel, vesta..even cpanel.

Obviously i miss something in all that proccess :/

  • You cannot manage your domain both via our DNS servers and via the DNS server within your droplet. If your domain's DNS is pointed to the DO nameservers then you must enter the records via the DO control panel. If you wish to use the DNS server on your droplet you would need to register it as a nameserver with your domain registrar (godaddy) and point your domain to that new namserver address.
