Hi I’m trying to connect to my website and I got this following error in Chrome: ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED

I have run nginx -t as well as tail /var/log/nginx/error.log with no luck.

NGINX Sites-enabled file:

server {

        root /var/www/;

        # Add index.php to the list if you are using PHP
        index index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html index.php;


        location / {
                try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$query_string;

        location ~ \.php$ {
                include snippets/fastcgi-php.conf;
                fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php/php7.2-fpm.sock;
                fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
                include fastcgi_params;

        location ~ /\.ht {
                deny all;

I use GoDaddy as Domain hoster. All of the nameservers are pointing to digitalocean.

Hello, @brittwittrup

Can you please confirm if your domain name is resolving/pointing to your droplet/server? What happens when you ping the domain name? If you’ve made any recent DNS changes, keep in mind that DNS changes might take up to 48 hours due to DNS cache. You can check the DNS propagation using this site:
