I created a Droplet 12 hours ago and added the nameservers given by Digital Ocean to my Godaddy Domain Account DNS settings.
When i’m running a whois on my Domain, the digital ocean servers are visible. However, when i try to open my domain name on the browser, my website is unreachable.
1).So how long does it take for the Godaddy to connect with the Digital Ocean Droplet? As of now, I can access only my IP address not my website.
2.) Additionally, in my wordpress general settings, i changed the website from IP address of Digital Ocean to my domain name and now the website ( accessed by IP address) is not opening correctly( some images are not displaying and I cannot login as well because its redirecting to mywebsite/wp-login.php which is already not accessible. What exactly is happening?
