New domain name does not point to new droplet
I’ve created a droplet for a WordPress website theoldoak.pub, followed the steps in order to finish the WordPress setup and everything worked fine so far. I’ve changed the DNS nameserver settings on the registrar’s website to Digital ocean nameservers, something I’ve always done in the past so that the domain name would point correctly to the droplet IP. However this time round it just doesn’t work, when I visit theoldoak.pub the DNS does not resolve. If I ping the website I get an unknown host response, and if I ping the droplet IP I get a healthy 200 response.
I don’t know where I’m going wrong here, any help is much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
