Droplet DNS settings

My droplet that is hosting a wordpress website seems to be down/up at random times.

My NameCheap domain registrar configuration has custom DNS:

Droplet configuration in DO:

Type: A Domain: Directs to: TTL: 3600

Type: NS Directs to: TTL: 1800

Type: NS Directs to: TTL: 1800

Type: NS Directs to: TTL: 1800

What is the reason I can not access my website on the public web? When trying to access it I get an error: “DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN”

Hey there!

It looks like that domain is not using DigitalOcean nameservers but Namecheaps.

--Name Servers--

As such the DNS settings you have set in your DigitalOcean domains settings won’t have any affect on that domain.

If you recently switched those nameservers back to Namecheap this could be caused by propagation issues. You could reach out to your domain registrar to verify that.

Hope it helps! Nate
