A doubt: are nameservers necessary or just pointing DNS is fine?

Sorry for the question I’m a bit noob when it comes to DNS and nameservers and all this devOps.

I have already pointed my DNS towards netlify (I mean I configure the A and CNAME types, and DNS propagation time is not still over), but I have a question: is it necessary to change also the nameservers?

I would prefer to not change my nameservers if that’s possibile.

Thanks in advance!

PS: I also have an old CNAME that I’m not sure if it’s safe to remove, so I left it on the domain configuration. Does superfluous CNAMEs types could interfere in the process?

Almost forgot, my netlify instance: lamboyant-mcnulty-83f3ba.netlify.com

Hi @anonimoconiglio! Welcome to netlify community!

There’s no need to change your name servers to Netlify’s. Our service works equally well with or without DNS under our control.

I am not sure what your old CNAME record is pointing to so I couldn’t really comment on that. Your SSL certificate has been issued for your site, so it didn’t interfere with that being provisioned which is a good sign!
