DNS WordPress Ubuntu

Hi, so I installed wordpress one click install. I changed the url from wordpress url they give you to http://nickmartinezofficial.com. Once I hit save it is now saying it cant connect because of a DNS problem. I'm presuming I now need to point the DNS correct? Where do I find it though? Some post I found said its like ns1.digitalocean.com I did that bit still no dice. Any clues guys?

If you are using DigitalOcean DNS, you first have to change your domain nameservers to:

  • ns1.digitalocean.com
  • ns2.digitalocean.com
  • ns3.digitalocean.com

And if you haven't already add the domain to your droplet here: https://cloud.digitalocean.com/networking/domains

This will create A record for nickmartinezofficial.com and point it to your droplet IP address.

Once you have done that, it will take 6-12 hours for the domain to propagate and start working.
