I’m trying to setup a domain name purchased on GoDaddy with my DigitalOcean droplet. So far, here’s what I’ve done :
Added the DigitalOcean nameservers (NS) in the Godaddy panel
Setup the domain in DigitalOcean for my droplet
If I ping the domain name charlesdemers.com, here’s what I get :
PING charlesdemers.com (22.214.171.124): 56 data bytes 64 bytes from 126.96.36.199: icmp_seq=0 ttl=54 time=32.050 ms 64 bytes from 188.8.131.52: icmp_seq=1 ttl=54 time=31.006 ms 64 bytes from 184.108.40.206: icmp_seq=2 ttl=54 time=30.818 ms 64 bytes from 220.127.116.11: icmp_seq=3 ttl=54 time=32.044 ms
The IP adress is correct, it’s pointing to my droplet’s IP. However, if I try to access the website by typing the domain name, it won’t work. I only get a blank page.
If I type the IP adress its pointing to directly, it works though.
Any idea on what I’m doing wrong? Am I missing a key step?
