Domain not resoliving: Nameservers are pointed to digital ocean, and I have an A record

Hi,

I have a .ly domain name, and at the registrar, I’ve pointed the nameservers over to digitalocean so I can manage it here. The nameservers are ns1.digitalocean.com etc.

Here, I have two DNS groups on my domain (I set the second one up because the first didn’t seem to be working)

www.mydomain.y and mydomain.ly

On both of those domains, I have three NS records, all pointing to the correct DO nameservers with ttl of 1800. They both also have an A record with @ (for root?) pointing at my IP address of the droplet instance.

My IP address resolves fine in the browser, but the domain is absolutely not resolving. It’s been a couple of days now so I presume something is wrong.

What have I missed?

how much time has passed since you did this?

Use this tool, for example, https://dnschecker.org/

Change to look for NS records, and check what the result is.

If the result is not ns1.digitalocean.com the problem is from where you bought the domain.
