If you’re using DigitalOcean’s LE integration the expectation is that DigitalOcean’s DNS will manage your domain. This is a limitation in the product we are planning on removing in the coming months. If this is not a constraint for you, and you’ve updated your registrar accordingly to point to DO’s name servers, you should be able to separate your download files in an independent Spaces configured with it’s own subdomain/SSL cert.

    To achive LE challenge, Only CNAME record to digitalocean is required. Requiring whole NS setting is some kind of weird.
    If you really need to use NameServer, Why can’t I use NS record for subdomain?
