DNS Features

Adding a domain you own to your DigitalOcean account lets you manage the domain’s DNS records with the control panel and API. Domains you manage on DigitalOcean integrate with DigitalOcean Load Balancers and Spaces to streamline automatic SSL certificate management.

DigitalOcean’s DNS tools let you manage DNS records for DigitalOcean and non-DigitalOcean resources in the same place you manage your infrastructure.

Supported Records

We currently support the following record types:

  • A,
  • AAAA
  • CAA
  • MX
  • NS
  • PTR
  • TXT
  • SRV

Our name servers are ns1.digitalocean.com, ns2.digitalocean.com, and ns3.digitalocean.com.

Fully Managed SSL Certificates

Managing domains on DigitalOcean also enables our Let’s Encrypt integration for fully managed SSL certificates, which work with custom Spaces CDN endpoints and SSL termination on DigitalOcean Load Balancers.
