Is this still the case? Google just had an outage last Friday and we went offline. I can’t yell at google, but if DO had DNS I’m sure it would be more reliable than google.

That is correct, we do not offer recursive DNS. <br> <br>You can use Google’s DNS servers, Level3’s, or any other recursive DNS servers you like, though.

Someone can correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think DigitalOcean offers recursive DNS.
