DNS error after transferring domain and setting up DO Wordpress site

Posted November 1, 2017 1.3k views

I transferred my domain from Squarespace to Namecheap and set up my Nameservers to DO.

I then set up my MX records and Domain in the Networking tab for my DO Wordpress site I created.

My email works, but my site continues to give me a DNS error. Whois shows the updated Nameservers yet the site does not load.

Attached screenshots of my DNS settings and Namecheap Settings in imgur photos below.

Your DNS looks absolutely correct. I believe that this could have been due to DNS caching, it can take between 1 and 72 hours for the DNS cache to clear over the Globe before you could see your new A record.
