I struggle to create a DNS record for my domain name.
In my domain_name provider I created the following entries to direct my domain to DO:
ns1.digitalocean.com ns2.digitalocean.com ns3.digitalocean.com
This seems to work. In DO control panel/DNS records display the following: type:NS, Hostname:<domain_name> Value: directs to ns1.digitalocean.com.Copy *as well as ns2, ns3 TTL:1800
I then create a new record type:A Hostname:* value:<my-droplet> TTL:3600
I wait for 48hours. Nothing appears. “Hmmm… can’t reach this page”
What am I doing wrong? Any advise would be highly appreciated.

You can verify that the domain name is using DO’s nameservers and that the DNS records are propagating. Also check the status of the domain name with your registrar as there might be an issue with the domain itself.
The DNS changes will take some time to update mostly due to DNS cache but this should be fully working in 48 hours.
