Dreamhost DNS Propagation help?

February 1, 2015 2.9k views

Yesterday, I decided to move my WordPress blog from Dreamost to DigitalOcean. I’ve migrated everything on my new droplet yesterday, and changed the DNS info today.

In fact, I have deleted all hosting on Dreamhost and pointed my blog’s domain name (www.photographio.com) to DigitalOcean’s nameservers on their registrar, and updated the DNS info on DigitalOcean as well (see screenshots below)

However the DNS changes appear to not be propagating, even after a few hours… Should I simply wait or is there anything I have done wrong?

Can someone with a bit more technical knowledge please assist me in this? Thanks!

Remove the dots at the end. Remove the CNAME *. Change www to www.photographio.com.

Tried removing ending dots, but it says ‘data needs to end with a dot’

And is there any particular reason to remove the wildcard (*) ?


You had that pointing to a name, that doesn’t work.
