I'm going to share the responses I received from both Linode and Digital Ocean as I believe they might be useful to someone at some point: Linode I believe the issue you're seeing is due to you not have a DNS zone for your second level domain. As far as I can see you need to create a new zone for accounts.example.com.ng, you will need to create NS ...

Something appears to be misconfigured. You are attempting to define a separate DNS zone for your subdomain, but it does not exist on the internet facing DNS servers.
