Changing DNS from Hetzner to Digital Ocean's not working

I have setup droplet with DO. Added my domain and changed name servers to DO’s.

I’m using Pingdom to check it.

However it’s been several hours and I’m still redirected to my previous hosting at Hetzner.

I know that it can take up-to 48 hours, but usually it happened within an hour or two. At least after clearing all cache.

My website is live on old hosting, but nameservers are changed to DO, and on droplet I have setup new site from migration tool.

It’s accessible via this IP:

There’s nothing wrong with your domain.
