How to add a DS record to GoDaddy


GoDaddy supports DNSSEC with algorithm 13 for the following TLDs:

.com, .net, .biz, .us, .org, .eu, .se, .at,,,, .co,,,

You might not be able to use DNSSEC with Cloudflare for your GoDaddy domain if the TLD cannot be configured with algorithm 13 in GoDaddy. Contact GoDaddy for support.

If you find out that GoDaddy does not support algorithm 13 for your TLD, you might wish to consider transferring your domain to a registrar that supports algorithm 13 so that you can configure DNSSEC with Cloudflare. To understand the reasons why Cloudflare chose algorithm 13, read ECDSA: The missing piece of DNSSEC.
