Issues with subdomain not working (but works when I hardcode the ip in hosts file)
I’m trying to point a subdomain to my droplet running a nginx server. Somewhere along the way I’ve done something wrong and when I try to go to my subdomain I get “Gateway Timeout: can’t connect to remote host.”
I’m pretty sure it’s an issue with the DNS because when I add my subdomain to my hosts file and point it to my droplet’s ip address everything works great.
The following is my zone file on DO:
$ORIGIN blog.bookroo.com. $TTL 1800 blog.bookroo.com. IN SOA ns1.digitalocean.com. hostmaster.blog.bookroo.com. 1423974942 10800 3600 604800 1800 blog.bookroo.com. 1800 IN NS ns1.digitalocean.com. blog.bookroo.com. 1800 IN NS ns2.digitalocean.com. blog.bookroo.com. 1800 IN NS ns3.digitalocean.com. blog.bookroo.com. 1800 IN A 18.104.22.168
The domain is managed by NameSilo and I have the following settings:
A 22.214.171.124 NA 172816 www re-direct A 126.96.36.199 NA 172816 www re-direct A 188.8.131.52 NA 172816 www re-direct blog CNAME ns1.digitalocean.com NA 172817 3rd-party www CNAME lb.cratejoy.com NA 172816 3rd-party
Can anyone see what I’m doing wrong? Thanks in advance!
