Hello, Digital Ocean support and community.
I am not a tech guy by trade so please forgive me for any ignorance that comes through on this question.
I was able to edit these sites using the IP of the droplet up until the point that I connected the droplet to my domains. I am sure I am missing something but am not sure what.
This is the Error I receive from both sites:
"This site can’t be reached
bridgetribe.com’s server DNS address could not be found. Search Google for bridgetribe ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED"
I changed the nameservers on my GoDaddy account and as such this is the message they give me about the DNS:
"Records We can’t display your DNS information because your nameservers aren’t managed by us.
As stated above I originally was able to edit the WordPress site using DropletIP/wp-admin but now I can’t reach the site at all. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated. I am thinking about calling GoDaddy but figured it must have been a mistake on this end.
Figured this could help here is how one of my DNS look on this side:
What’s next? You need to update your nameservers with your domain registrar for the records below to take effect. Learn how to do that Create new record A
SRV Use @ to create the record at the root of the domain or enter a hostname to create it elsewhere. A records are for IPv4 addresses only and tell a request where your domain should direct to.
