After snapshot transfer wrong domain ip

  • Posted October 24, 2013

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 https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-use-dig-whois-ping-on-an-ubuntu-vps-to-query-dns-data so i know that there is TTL when dns servers look for ip.
