Domain won't connect to droplet server. DNS issue?

I’m having - what I think - are DNS issues.

My droplet is functioning. I can hit it at the IP address. My domain is registered at Network Solutions and my nameservers are pointing to,, I’ve setup A records. I can ping the IP address and the domain on the command line, and all seems well.

Hitting the domain returns a server connectivity error.

I’ll probably need to provide more info, I just don’t know what that might be.

Relatively new to DNS. Need help! Thanks.

Hi Kamal,

I’ve actually just located the source of the problem and resolved it. It was, in fact, some unconfigured settings in my ServerPilot setup causing the issue.

Embarrassingly simple fix after a days worth of agonizing.

I appreciate you taking the time to try and help me out!
