I moved my website hosting to digital ocean. I changed the DNS in godaddy where I registered it and added records in DO control panel. When I ping my website (georgekmeid.com) it resolves to my droplet IP as it should but the browser can’t find my domain. However, when I enter my IP instead of my domain, my website loads successfully.
This is my zone file:
@ IN SOA NS1.DIGITALOCEAN.COM. hostmaster.georgekmeid.com. ( 1414269135 ; last update: 2014-10-25 20:32:15 UTC 3600 ; refresh 900 ; retry 1209600 ; expire 1800 ; ttl ) IN NS NS1.DIGITALOCEAN.COM. NS NS2.DIGITALOCEAN.COM. NS NS3.DIGITALOCEAN.COM. MX 1 ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. MX 5 ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. MX 5 ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. MX 10 ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
