Going to my domain (new-world.online) brings up:
Unable to connect Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at new-world.online.
Pinging it on CMD-Promt brings up: Reply from 188.8.131.52: bytes=32 time=91ms TTL=54
I’ve set @ to go to my droplet IPv4. And my CName * to point to my domain (@) All set.
Typing in the IP: 184.108.40.206 Works and takes you to my site using the reverse proxy. The reverse proxy has the domain set as new-world.online and is listening on 80 and connecting to the node app on port 8080.
I know this works because 220.127.116.11 works and not only 18.104.22.168:8080 proving the proxy works and it’s the domain:
** $ORIGIN new-world.online. $TTL 1800 new-world.online. IN SOA ns1.digitalocean.com. hostmaster.new-world.online. 1467468106 10800 3600 604800 1800 new-world.online. 1800 IN NS ns1.digitalocean.com. new-world.online. 1800 IN NS ns2.digitalocean.com. new-world.online. 1800 IN NS ns3.digitalocean.com. new-world.online. 1800 IN A 22.214.171.124 *.new-world.online. 1800 IN CNAME new-world.online. **
