actually, I take the question back, that worked :)

it may have been a problem with not flushing correctly my dns cache
Reason? load balancing?
I do have a similar problem, I wand to assign a sub domain name to a different IP address, I am currently using a hosted service. Please, how can I achieve this?

@chuddy17: Simply point an A record on whatever DNS platform you are using to your droplet's IP address.
