Migration Problem DNS propagation ?

Hello everyone !

Testing Digital Ocean for the first time and it’s been totally awesome. I did a migration for my website (, I modified my DNS in Gandi (my registrar). Maybe I’m not asking the question in the good place but some users reach the game and some don’t. Also some did reach it and now the game is gone for them.

I can’t understand why at all, if you have any idea where I could check I would be very glad.

My Gandi DNS seems good. My virtualHosts seemes good too. Do I have just to wait ?

Thanks again and enjoy your day !

If the DNS for your domain was already set to another provider, it’s possible for propagation to take as long as 24-48h. In most cases, it’s as quick as few minutes to an hour, though I’ve seen cases that extend out longer.

If you’ve already closed out your previous account with the previous provider, there could be a period of time where users won’t be able to connect due to propagation, so that very well could be the case.

To make sure it’s not an issue on the server, I’d recommend checking your error logs to see if anything pops up such as errors relating to connections, file errors, etc.

DNS Servers need some time for the migration. Normally clients are also caching certain DNS requests. Waiting up to 12 hours should resolve the issue.
