Cannot add a TXT Record

Hello,

I'm trying to add a txt record but I cannot add because the record section states "We can't display your DNS information because your nameservers aren't managed by us" I'm hosting the website myself and presently the dns servers used are from zoneedit

 

Regards,

Since you've stated you are using zoneedit for your DNS servers, then you will need to add the TXT record there.

Re: Cannot add a TXT Record

Thank you for your reply.

 

Can I in this case change to Godaddy DNS Servers, if it is an option. The reason i need to add txt records is to use godaddy's api for dns validation to update a certificate. Are dns servers available since the domain is registered at godaddy?

Yes GoDaddy provides DNS services with their domains. You would just
have to switch it back from using custom to use standard and then you
would not have to use the third-party DNS service.

Re: Cannot add a TXT Record

I just checked the nameservers entry and saw only default as an option and not standard.

 

Is this the same? If so the nameservers will be assigned automatically in the background?

Yes that is one in the same. GoDaddy will automatically assign the DNS
servers and set up a default zone file which you can then edit
accordingly. Make sure you note all the current zone file information
from the current third-party provider so you can reset that up at
GoDaddy.
