DNS not Updating for IOS
Hi DigitalOcean Community,
I have recently switched my website from HostGator to DigitalOcean and I have enjoyed the increased functionalities and capacities of the new host.
Unfortunately, I have updated my DNS settings (ie. setting Type A for www. and @ to redirect to my floating ip address) over a week ago. At this point, it seems that the DNS’ are all now working for on desktop and android devices. Strangely enough, they do not seem to be working on IOS devices. This is not an issue with resetting caches, as I have made all the necessary steps to fully refresh them. Similarly, on other IOS devices that have never viewed the site before (ie. no stored caches), the pages still don’t seem to load.
I know that GoDaddy domains take a long time to update (which is the reason I am looking to change soon), but after calling them they said that everything looked updated on their end. Is there perhaps some step that I must take to update the DNS’ for IOS devices? This seems pretty strange after nearly two weeks.
I really hope to hear back from you - and I appreciate any help.
PS The website has been functional on IOS devices with other domains.
