Godaddy domain with digitalocean droplet nameserver issue.
I have my domain registered with GoDaddy & hosted with DO. Everything was working fine till some days ago.
Suddenly some one complaint that it’s not working & I saw the same. I thought, it must be some coding issue with Drupal but there were no error in logs. I downloaded code, DB & set up at my local & it was working fine.
Then I checked my GoDaddy account & I saw, they have blocked it for email being not verified. I quickly verified & then checked my NameServer, which was default then after. Set that up & waited for it to populate.
But it didn’t & I called their customer care. They asked me to update my A record in zone file with droplet IP address & wait for 48 hours. I did.
It still doesn’t work. I called GoDaddy today & talked with their technical team. They sent me a mail with a link - http://digwebinterface.com/?hostnames=jolleofsweden.com&type=ANY&ns=resolver&useresolver=188.8.131.52&nameservers=ns1.digitalocean.com.%0D%0Ans2.digitalocean.com. They say, there is no issue from GoDaddy side but NameServer is working & it’s issue with hosting.
For the droplet, if I hit my IP address which is http://184.108.40.206/, that also works & gives me default apache2 pages. then where is the issue? Whom should I blame?
Aah…and digital ocean guys also can’t help as they don’t have any clue like every other time because it’s my own setup & they don’t have any access(which I am ready to share).
