Setting up domains

Deployment DigitalOcean Ubuntu 16.04

Now i have to admit i'm not the best guy at domains and shit like that but i'm REALLY confused. i have onlydomains domain (artsenpai.com) and i just pointed them to digitalocean nameservers.. and they don't work at all (apache not loading just plain redirecting to onlydomains). i have talked to onlydomains support and they tell me THIS (admin i talked to):
1) you've delegated fine but you are submitting an inordinate amount of delegatoins; you need to stop resubmitting the delegation, it's alreadyd one; 2) your main issue is the digitalocean name servers aren't responding for your domain, that's something you need to address with digitalocean

Querying a.root-servers.net (198.41.0.4)... delegated
Querying e.gtld-servers.net (192.12.94.30)... delegated
Querying ns2.digitalocean.com (173.245.59.41)... refused
Querying ns1.digitalocean.com (173.245.58.51)... refused
Unable to find: artsenpai.com

and then they tell me i need to address this to.. digitalocean i guess? i'm really confused. i need help

This guide may be helpful in setting up your domain with the DigitalOcean DNS services.

I think I was able to track down the problem. Querying our servers for www.artsenpai.com gives me a result

> www.artsenpai.com
Server:     ns1.digitalocean.com
Address:    173.245.58.51#53

Name:   www.artsenpai.com
Address: 104.131.159.64

But querying for artsenpai.com does not.

> artsenpai.com
Server:     ns1.digitalocean.com
Address:    173.245.58.51#53

** server can't find artsenpai.com: REFUSED

This would lead me to believe that you created a zone in the DigitalOcean DNS services for the subdomain www.artsenpai.com instead of the domain itself (artsenpai.com). Deleting the current zone and re-creating it for your domain itself should resolve the problem.

  • Thanks for replying is this a correct setup? image of my setup i assume i must wait? because artsenpai.com still doesn't show anything. tell me what i should add or what i should change/remove
