Switched to the digitalocean VPS. In order to transfer the domain to it, it gave me this picture.

Do I need a dot at the end of the DNS server? Or should the dot be removed?


The dot indicates that the address is absolute and not relative.
In fact , there is always a dot after the domain name in our browser , just the browser does not show it .


NS DNS records define authoritative name servers for the zone.
Each zone must have at least one record that identifies the name servers responsible for the domain. The availability of a zone can be increased by using two or more such records. If the first name server is unavailable, the zone will still be accessible through another server.

The owner field must contain either the full domain name of the zone with a dot at the end (for example, ), or the at (@) sign.
The RDATA section of a DNS resource record contains only one field: the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the name server that processes requests for this record.
