A few days ago, I purchased a domain on godaddy and set its nameservers to netlify's nameservers as a temporary change. The site and domain worked fine and I viewed it on chrome on my phone and PC.

  • Did you actually add DNS records via DigitalOcean's control panel (or copy the ones you had at Netlify)? Do they resolve via command line? – grawity Jan 28 at 7:51

  • @davidgo the domain name is bitoverflow.in – kickstart7962 Jan 28 at 7:57
