DNS change is not reflecting

Hello Sir,

I have updated my droplet to latest one and then I change DNS A record and Point it to new Droplet by selecting dropdown.

After 3 days It is not pointing to new droplet and still pointing to old droplet which is turned off by me.

Help me to point my domain to new droplet.

Hi there,

Is your domain name using the DigitalOcean nameservers?

If you are not using the DigitalOcean nameservers, this means that you need to make the DNS change on your DNS provider side. This would depend on which nameservers you are using.

If you prefer to use the DNS management on the DigitalOcean side, then you need to change your nameservers to the DigitalOcean ones:
