Why I must use DigitalOcean's DNS server ?

Hi all,

I have a domain registered on provider.

usually, when I create a droplet on DigitalOcean, I modify my domain Provider’s DNS to connect to droplet IP.

Why I would change the provider’s DNS into DigitalOcean’s DNS ?

What’s the difference ?

thanks Antonello

You don’t need change anything if you don’t want to. If you’re happy using your domain registrar’s tools to configure your DNS setting, then you can continue to do so. DigitalOcean simply provides the DNS panel as a convenience for users who would rather manage both their servers and their DNS records in the same place.
