Having problems directing my domain to my droplet.

So I set up a server on my droplet with the ip and I got the domain from namecheap.
I followed the official DNS guide on DigitalOcean and my settings on DO and Namecheap look like this currently: Settings
I am unable to properly redirect the domain to my ip though.
If i ping the domain I end up on ip
I’m very much a novice on this so I’m not sure how to set things up.
Does anyone have a clue?

I manged to solve it and it was just just an issue with patience…

Yes. DNS changes take at least a minimum of 5 minutes to propagate and could go up to 48 to 72 hrs.
