DNS not working
Can anyone help me with my server? My DNS doesn’t seem to be working. I continuously get this error “www.188.8.131.52’s server DNS address could not be found.”
There is period called DNS Propagation. It’s the period needed to wait after changing nameservers. As you are using Namecheap (correct me if I’m wrong), it could take 24-72 hours. Namecheap explained this very well for their service and this is something you can read - DNS Propagation – Explained.
I don’t think it’s anymore problem. Before half hour (about 21pm CET)
whois would return following nameservers:
WHOIS output for nameserversName Server: DNS1.NAMECHEAPHOSTING.COM Name Server: DNS2.NAMECHEAPHOSTING.COM
Now it does return DigitalOcean nameservers but I’m still not able to ping your site:
WHOIS output for nameserversName Server: NS1.DIGITALOCEAN.COM Name Server: NS2.DIGITALOCEAN.COM Name Server: NS3.DIGITALOCEAN.COM
If it still doesn’t work for you - verify you added domain correctly.
When you go to Control Panel -> Networking, you must domain added as it is. It must be added as
csgodash.win not for example
www.csgodash.win or something other.
You must have 4 records under that domain - 3 NS records and 1 A record pointing to Droplet IP.
To check if everything is correct you can also look at zone file, in your case it should look in lines of this:
$ORIGIN csgodash.win. $TTL 1800 csgodash.win. IN SOA ns1.digitalocean.com. hostmaster.csgodash.win. 1477773333 10800 3600 604800 1800 csgodash.win. 1800 IN NS ns1.digitalocean.com. csgodash.win. 1800 IN NS ns2.digitalocean.com. csgodash.win. 1800 IN NS ns3.digitalocean.com. csgodash.win. 1800 IN A droplet-ip
By image you linked - it looks OK. But make sure you added domain correctly. :)
