Hi @webprotime,

This error is usually related to your DNS not propagating. At least this is what I can get from the context. I’ll recommend going over to the following Docs on how to configure your DNS with DigitalOcean

https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/networking/dns/

Additionally, what I’ll recommend checking is trying to ping your domain name from your terminal like so

ping domain.com

Where you’ll need to change ‘domain.com’ with your actual domain name.

Additionally, you can check the propagation of your domain from the following website
