How to Direct Domain from NameCheap to DigitalOcean Droplet

I have followed the tutorial for adding DigitalOcean’s nameservers to NameCheap and have waited the recommended 24 hours and still the DNS won’t resolve when I try to go to my site. I’ve done this three times now. I tried doing an nslookup and it gives me the right IP address for my site but it calls it a “Non-authoritative answer” and the DNS request times out. Does anyone know why this might be? Here’s what the response from my nslookup:

DNS request timed out.
    timeout was 2 seconds.
DNS request timed out.
    timeout was 2 seconds.
Non-authoritative answer:
Address:  XXX.XXX.XXX.XX
