Question

DNS issue after set up

I finished setting up a new droplet and I’ve followed the guide as to set up the DNS.

The domain was on GoDaddy, so I went there and update them (ns1, ns2, and ns3)

On Networking->domains on DO I’ve added the domain, then the A record for @ and * (since I want to have subdomain)

Now that the DNS seems to be updated what I get is just an error from the browser (server DNS address could not be found.). When I ping it that is what I get:

cannot resolve DOMAIN.COM: Unknown host

Did I break something somewhere?

PS: on google public DNS I also get this error:

Nameservers refused the query [173.245.59.41, 173.245.58.51, 198.41.222.173]

Hi @Wran

If you just changed the name servers, then you have to wait - sometimes up to 48 hours, before GoDaddy has given control over to DigitalOcean’s name servers.

You can run the following command to see your name servers and DNS records:

dig domain.com NS
dig domain.com A
dig www.domain.com CNAME
