I still don’t really understand DNS and domains, especially not when using sub-domains. I hope some one can help me!
So I’m building an API (just a school project nothing to big). I want to serve my data securely so I need an SSL cert., I bought a domain from my favorite hosting provider, similar to my name, so that I can drop my portfolio on there for later on.
I don’t make use of my full domain at all, just a subdomain for my api, which is currently on my droplet at /var/www/dorsia. I tried configuring my DNS and nameservers on both ends (as well from Digitalocean as from my hosting provider), but when I visit my subdomain it gives me ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED. Also my full domain gives me the same, which first returned the page from my hosting provider that it is reserved by me.
I’ll post the settings here.
$ORIGIN dorsia.fabiantjoeaon.com. $TTL 1800 dorsia.fabiantjoeaon.com.

As this is my first time doing this, I’m pretty sure I did something wrong. Could someone please help me out :(?
