Hi. Its my first question here. I've created yesterday droplet in NY2 because Amsterdam was disabled. Today i saw that Amsterdam is enabled again so i took snapshot of NY2 droplet and transfered it to Amsterdam. I changed record A of my domain to ip of new droplet in Amsterdam. But now when i ping my domain from Amsterdam vps i get old ip(NY2 droplet which is powered off). My local windows computer show good ip. Why

Its started working after i wrote this question. And i found this so i know that there is TTL when dns servers look for ip.

Setting up domain names can be challenging for those who are inexperienced. The "dig" command can help verify that your domain settings are correct. This is also helpful for investigating how other websites set up their domain records. This guide will introduce the basics of how to query information with dig. It will also briefly explore the "ping" and "whois" commands.
