Dreamhost DNS Propagation help?

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 ( 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! 2015-02-01 13.00.07.jpg?dl=0 2015-02-01 13.00.48.jpg?dl=0
