How to point my domain to my droplet using DO's Nameserver ?
Hi guys, I need help.
Currently, I have a CentOS 7 droplet and on my droplet, I installed Direct Admin. My domain is at Network Solutions, it used to point to SiteGround Hosting but yesterday I pointed my domain to Digital Ocean using my Droplet’s IP. At first, it worked perfectly. My domain was resolved, my sub-domains were resolved too.
But then, my boss wanted to change from using Droplet’s IP to DO’s 3 Nameservers ( ns1.digitalocean.com, ns2.digitalocean.com, ns3.digitalocean.com ). So I changed it, and I added 2 A records for my domain in Direct Admin to resolve ( @ record and www record ). But, I’ve been waiting for hours, and when I used dnschecker.org to check, it was still not resolved.
I don’t know what to do now, do I have to resolve it via Digital Ocean control panel for my droplet ( even when I have added A records for my domain in Direct Admin ) ?
Please help me out, I’m still new to this droplets and domains pointing things. Any help would be very useful for me, thank you guys a lot.
