Question

Querying DigitalOcean's name servers

I created a DNS entry for my domain, but when I query ns1.digitalocean.com directly, the query is refused. Why is that?

dig @NS1.DIGITALOCEAN.COM a starchy.n64088.org.

; <<>> DiG 9.9.3-rl.13207.22-P2-RedHat-9.9.3-7.P2.fc18 <<>> @NS1.DIGITALOCEAN.COM a starchy.n64088.org. ; (1 server found) ;; global options: +cmd ;; Got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: REFUSED, id: 46220 ;; flags: qr rd; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 1 ;; WARNING: recursion requested but not available

;; OPT PSEUDOSECTION: ; EDNS: version: 0, flags:; udp: 4096 ;; QUESTION SECTION: ;starchy.n64088.org. IN A
