Did you create DNS records using DigitalOcean domain panel under Networking -> Domains?

You can also use this tool to check if the domain has propagated in other locations: https://syscoding.com/network/propagation/

  • I went to networking->domains and did the following

    In the domain box i added nameOfMySite.com and in the IP section i added the IP of the droplet then hit create.

    I wen to the site you provided but nothing showed in the response section after adding my domain

    • Domain should start to work within 12-24 hours after you have created the domain under networking.

      The Propagation Checker can be slow since it will check in 19 different locations, but it should load after 30-60 minutes.
