Question

My IP works but domain from namecheap doesn't work

  • Posted August 2, 2021
  • DNS

I followed the tutorial https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-nginx-on-ubuntu-18-04 to host my domain linkberry.io. So my IP address works fine http://165.232.133.218/. On my DNS records, it says linkberry.io directs to http://165.232.133.218/. However, whenever I tried my linkberry.io address, it doesn’t work, showing namecheap something.

Can somebody please advise on this?

Hi @minyoungchang65,

I can see your Domain is resolving properly now and is loading from your Droplet.

What the issue seems to be is your DNS needed time to propagate. Usually, the DNS propagation can take up to 48 hours.

Hello, @minyoungchang65

I believe that this is now sorted, at the moment the website is loading fine via the domain name and using the IP address as well.

Keep in mind that the DNS might take up to 48 hours in order to fully update. This is mainly due to DNS cache and standard DNS propagation. You can always use our DNS tool to check if everything is configured correctly.
