Hi! I’m new managing servers and I’m a little lost with the dns. I install ZPanel on my server, I added a domain and upload web files by ftp. Until here all right.

The problem I have is with the dns. In my droplet I I have added a principal domain and use the dns digitalocean, but now I added a domain in my ZPanel and not to do with the dns. I have to configure dns digitalocean in ZPanel?, Or what?.

(sorry for my english)

Thanks, Regards, Daniela.

What nameservers did you tell your domain registrar to use? <br> <br>If you’re pointing your domain to DigitalOcean’s nameservers, then you cannot manage DNS w/zPanel – you have to manage it via the DigitalOcean DNS Manager. If you want to manage DNS via zPanel, then you need to (i) use your droplet as your domain’s nameservers and (ii) you’ll need to deploy DNS software, e.g. BIND, PowerDNS, on your droplet, as well. <br> <br>While not directly on point, you can learn a little more about the workings of DNS, here: <a href=“”>How To Create Vanity or Branded Nameservers with DigitalOcean Cloud Servers</a>. <br> <br>Perhaps this would help: <a href=“”>zPanel Documentation</a>.

Thanks, <br>I try DigitalOcean’s DNS manager and works. Now I’m trying to run for ZPanel. I copy the same records using DigitalOcean’s DNS but doesn’t work, i keep looking. <br> <br>Thank you very much for your answer. <br>regards
