How to point DNS to Droplet
I created a Droplet which I can access using the IP. I also create a domain name for the droplet
test.mydomain.com. Digital Ocean added 3 NS entries, and I added another A entry sending
test.mydomain.com to the droplet IP. Then I logged in to my registrar and added a CNAME sending
I’ve waited a few hours for propagation but still the browser can’t load the page. If I do
dig on the command line I see it resolving to the nameserver but not the actual droplet IP. Not sure if this is incorrect or how it should be.
How do I get the DNS entry to load the Droplet hosted app in the browser ?
I don’t want to hardcode the Droplet IP in my registrar as an A record in case it changes in the future.
