Yes, I have done this for a long time and it still happens days and days and nothing … I will already configure the DNS in Go Daddy the way I was oriented, and I will also configure the Digita Ocean server the way I was oriented, go ! When I put my domain to see it loads the site, but with the server ID in the URL bar!

I tried now again, remembering that my site is WordPress has some configuration that I have to do there in the Panel?


What issues are you having with GoDaddy? Pointing your domain to your Droplet can be done by setting up either 2 A entries or 1 A and CNAME entry.

Using 2 A entries, you’d create entries such as

A          @          DROPLET_IP
A          www        DROPLET_UP

Using 1 A and 1 CNAME entry, you’d use:

A          @          DROPLET_IP
CNAME      www        yourdomain.ext

Where DROPLET_IP is the public IP address for your Droplet and, in the second example, where yourdomain.ext is your domain name.
