Domain name not working but ip does

  • Posted June 12, 2014

Hello, im new here at DO, and so far is great.

Last night i just installed my apache and configured its virtualhost, then i setup my ns in godaddy and here in DO for my domain but after a moment (maybe dns propagation?) the domain stop working but i can ping it, and apache is running fine.

If i enter with the ip, it works but not with the domain, im pretty sure is a dns thing but not sure what to do anymore… any idea please?

Thank you.


did you ever figure out the solution to this problem? I am having the same issue

Do you mean in the Digital Ocean panel? because in godaddy i have a A record to @ to the DO ip and have a cname for www pointing to @ host.

I’ll try adding it to DO as a new domain with the www to test it.

You only added an A record for, you forgot or *
