Subdomain DNS Delegation in Digital Ocean

Posted December 26, 2014 2.9k views

Hi,

I am using Digital Ocean as my main DNS. Right now, I realize I need to have a subdomain delegated out to another nameserver.

Is it possible to do it in DO? As I see, one cannot specify a subdomain to associate with an NS record now.

Is there a workaround to make this happen while still having DO as my main DNS?

Thanks.

Unfortunately subdomain delegation is not possible from our DNS system. While it can host a record for a subdomain delegated from another DNS server it is not currently possible to create an NS record to delegate a subdomain pointed to our nameservers to another server.
