Hi there @knopmatthew93,

What I could suggest is to change your nameservers to the DigitalOcean nameservers and then add your domain name under your DigitalOcean account. That way you will be able to manage your DNS directly via your DigitalOcean control panel.

For more information on how to do that you can follow the steps here:

Hope that this helps! let me know if you have any quesitons! Regards, Bobby
