Why would I want to change my domain nameservers to Digital Ocean?
I’ve been developing my website and deploying it to my digital ocean server.
I’ve recently purchased my domain name. I’m getting close to launch. I assumed that when I would like to launch my site, I would log into my domain name registrar, and change my A and CNAME records to point to my Digital Ocean server IP address.
Digital Ocean’s instructions say that I should change my nameservers to Digital Ocean’s nameservers, then set up my DNS records there. Why should I do this?
