IP Address not Domain Name in browser address bar
I don’t seem to have entered my DNS A, CNAME records correctly. If I visit the site from a Google search the IP address of the droplet stays in the address bar.
If I type ‘csmotors.uk’ into the address bar it is replaced by the IP address. If I type ’www.csmotors.uk’ into the address bar it is replaced by 'csmotors.uk.
My DNS A record looks like this:
A - csmotors.uk - directs to: 22.214.171.124 - TTL 3600
My DNS CNAME record looks like this:
CNAME - www.csmotors.uk - is an alias of csmotors.uk
It’s almost as if I need an IP address to domain name rule but I can’t seem to add one like that…
