Is anyone else having trouble pointing dns/ns records using digitalocean dns panel?

Posted August 26, 2018 1.2k views

We just have migrated (a couple of days ago) to digital ocean and we are struggling with the DNS. The dns records for subdomains have been already dispersed but not for the A records that handles www and @.
In fact,using several dns checkers we detected problems with SOA and also there are dns checking reports that detects different IP number instead of the one we added in the A record.
we are doing exactly as we have done it in the past and in other similar DNS panels located within hosting services as well.
any recommendation will be appreciated as we are done with all the possible solutions. thank you

Hey friend!

A deeper look at the domain in question may be of value here. As for those DNS testing tools, they tend to pick up a lot of cosmetic things so you may take some of their results with a grain of salt.

If you are seeing this as all working now, it most likely would have been DNS propagation. DNS propagation is a bit of a misleading statement, but it is what it is most commonly known as. That being the time required for your resolvers to drop their cache and request updated records.
