HI, I have changed the name servers on the name registrar to the digitalocean’s nameservers.
I have set up an A record in the control panel using @ directing to the droplet but this doesn’t work. It has been over 24 hours.
The website on droplet is up and running and works perfectly fine if I add the following line to my /etc/hosts file:
But if I remove this line from my hosts file it stops working immediately. When trying to do nslookup compasmen.com I’m getting:
nslookup compasmen.com Server: 172.25.24.2 Address: 172.25.24.2#53
** server can’t find compasmen.com: NXDOMAIN
Could you please advise how to make it work?
