attaching a droplet to a .tk domain
I recently bought a droplet.
In addition to the droplet I registered 2 free domain names (with a .ty suffix) - 1 is a staging domain name and the other is the actual domain name
I’m trying for a over a day to attach these 2 domains to my server (1 for the staging site and 1 for the regular site)
I tried following this: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-a-host-name-with-digitalocean however it seems like the domain names are not attaching to the actual server. If I try to ping the staging domain name or the regular domain via the linux command line I receive: ping: “unknown host gsuperlists-staging.tk” message.
I’ll be happy to upload a print screen of my DigitalOcean control panel if needed
This is my first server for Django deployment so i’ll appreciate it if you could explain what I’m missing in order to attach the domain names to the server (i’m using nginx if it matters)
Thanks in advance
