i resized my droplet using the appropriate method and now my site is down?

i switched off the droplet(server) for a few minutes as i had to do some resizing and then switched it back on , from the shh root it says everything is fine but i cant load up the website…

Is that because the IP address is taking another 24-48 hours to be re-routed to the domain because it was disconnected after switching off the server or?

at the moment i am getting this error on domain diagnosis


has ‘A’ no records


no ‘MX’ records

i did not change any settings

the status says ok but the name server is on the droplet so?


This sounds like a DNS issue rather than an issue with the droplet itself. A droplet restart should not affect your DNS records in any way unless you are actually running a service like Bind and you have your own nameservers on the droplet.

I would recommend running a whois for your domain name and checking the domain status, make sure that the domain name is not with status OnHold or similar and that the domain has not expired.
