Domain not pinging correctly but whois working
I have redirected my domain name (godaddy) to point from FreeHostia to digitalocean server today on 2015-11-28. When I type whois site.com in my terminal, the ServerName is
When i go to https://asm.ca.com/en/ping.php The IP address that shows is for my Digital Ocean server
The issue here is that on my Local computer, when i ping site.com I ping the old IP address from the FreeHostia server. And when i type site.com in Safari, I still get the old website.
It says that it may take up to a day for the redirection to be done worldwide, but if the website I enter at https://asm.ca.com/en/ping.php gives me the right IP address in all countries, shouldn’t it redirect to the right server by now ?
Thanks in advance for the help!
