Question

Domain name only works with www

When I visit my url place-puppy.com I my site is not there. However if I visit the IP or the domain with www in front I am taken to the correct place. I am not sure why. I am not very knowledge about how to read the ngnix config but it does have both the versions.

        index index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;

        server_name place-puppy.com www.place-puppy.com;

I followed the walkthrough on setting this up through a Digital Ocean tutorial.

Accepted Answer

place-puppy.com resolves to 64.98.145.30, which is where Tucows is parking your domain. You might need to double check your DO’s DNS management screen to make sure the domain points to your droplet IP.
