Hello @lacerdanycolas

DNS propagation can sometimes take up to 48 hours. You might need to wait a little bit longer for the DNS to start resolving from the updated IP address.

You can use our DNS lookup tool to ensure the DNS settings are correct:

Should you need further help, you can refer to our DigitalOcean DNS documentation for additional details and troubleshooting steps.

Hope that this helps!

which one did you follow :

Option 1: Using DigitalOcean’s Nameservers


Option 2: Using a CNAME Pointer

You need to use one of them.

Anyway, please note that DNS changes can propagate up to 48 hours, however in this day and age is faster so a realistic approach would be if it’s not propagated up to 7-8 hours than it’s not configured properly.

As for the pictures, do you have a record for your root domain and not just the www one?
