Can see the Zone file but I can't access my site.

  • Posted September 5, 2014


I have a domain on godaddy and I am using digitalocean hosting. I have mapped dns servers on godaddy and now I can see the zone file in digital ocean account. but I am still not able to access the website. I also tried whois and got the correct information but with below lines: ** Domain Name: ITSPAWAN.COM Registrar: GODADDY.COM, LLC Whois Server: Referral URL: Name Server: NS1.DIGITALOCEAN.COM Name Server: NS2.DIGITALOCEAN.COM Name Server: NS3.DIGITALOCEAN.COM Status: clientDeleteProhibited Status: clientRenewProhibited Status: clientTransferProhibited Status: clientUpdateProhibited**

Not sure what is wrong here. Can anybody guide me?

It looks like your root domian ( resolves to your blog, so you have successfully setup an A record pointing to it. If you want to also point to your blog, you need to create a CNAME like:

Hi again, I actually fixed it… The problem, my firewall was blocking it. I am not sure tho why so I disabled it for now.

Yes, my domain is I have this in my DNS settings:

CNAME * is an alias of 43200

CNAME is an alias of 43200

AAAA 2a03:b0c0:3:d0::3050:c001 3600

A 3600

NS 1800

NS 1800

NS 1800

Thank you for your time!

@desiboli what is your domain?

Did you added the domain in digital ocean?

I understand your domain registrar is Binero and you change the nameservers but you still got to add the domain in digital ocean.

@aguilar1181 may I ask how you solved this ? I have unfortunately the same problem, but I have my domain on another one called Binero.

I’ve changed my nameserver to the following Name Server: NS1.DIGITALOCEAN.COM Name Server: NS2.DIGITALOCEAN.COM Name Server: NS3.DIGITALOCEAN.COM

My domain status looks like this: Domain Status: serverTransferProhibited

Why is that ?

Best regards. Adam

I know my answer might sound stupid but I have to double check. Have you added your domain under the DO DNS tab? and is it set up properly?
