Domain hosted with A Records does not open in many countries

Hi, We hosted our domain on digitalocean hosting.

The A Records were updated however the domain does not open in many countries despite fourth day elapsing.

I can see a dashboard here in Brazil so it seems to be fine.

Hello, @rajjatkapoor72

As per baraboom’s reply all DNS changes might take up to 48 hours in order to fully update. This is due to ISP DNS cache and general DNS propagating as well. This usually happens a lot faster but will still take at least few hours to fully update.

You can check the DNS records with our DNS tool:

You can also monitor the DNS propagation using this site:

It will show you a DNS record check from various points around the world. This will help you to see if there is a DNS misconfiguration or if it’s just the DNS slowly updating.

The website is loading fine tested from my end. if you’re still experiencing problems to access the site I will recommend you to use alternative browser and different network if possible.

Hope this helps! Regards, Alex

Hi @rajjatkapoor72,

I’ve done some tests on your domain’s DNS and as far as I can see it’s working properly everywhere.

Can you let me know how to recreate the issues you are experiencing? How are you checking the DNS of your domain, it’s possible your checking tool is giving false-positive results.
