Always getting "awaiting external DNS" even after(I thought) moving over to Netlify managed DNS

hi there! If you’d like to use Netlify DNS, you need to configure the NS records at your registrar, rather than in Netlify, to point to:

dns1.p01.nsone.net
dns2.p01.nsone.net
dns3.p01.nsone.net
dns4.p01.nsone.net

This support guide goes into further detail if you’d like to check it out.
