Connect Wix Domain to my Droplet not working

Looking for some help with setting up my Wix Domain to point to my droplet.

Currently I have setup Wordpress on my droplet, and added my domain on DigitalOcean with “A” record, and “CNAME” configured, setup for DigitalOcean is as follows

My A record is as follows: “ directs to my_droplet_ip”

My CNAME record is as follows: “ is an alias of”

On my Wix Dashboard I have my “A” record set as:

“ — droplet_ip_address”

When I Google my domain name I am given this error:

**“This site can’t be reached’s server IP address could not be found. Try running Windows Network Diagnostics. DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN” **

Any sort of issue why this is happening. If I go to my droplets IP address I am greeted with a “non” rendered version of some Wordpress page.

Wix does not allow changing nameservers for w/e reason, and I have tried about everything I can think of… Please help :)

Hi there @StoneMn,

It seems you did not change the nameservers in your Wix account. Could you look into the following answer -

You should be able to change the nameservers as stated in the answer I posted.

Let me know if that helps.

Best, Dennis
