One domain is not working, the other is working perfectly. What's the problem?

I have setup two domain names with digitalocean, both are set up the same way. One domain,, is working just fine. The other one,, cannot resolve and this is after five days. Is there something I have messed up and need to change or what should I do? I am using Apache with being the ServerName and is a ServerAlias. The website is run with Django and both are added to Allowed_hosts. Their A names are also the exact same.

Hi @DavidWithRemovedLastname,

The issue doesn’t seem to be your droplet but with your DNS. From what you’ve provide us with I can’t make sense where exactly is the problem so I’ll tell you the solution.

For your domain go to your Control Panel and make sure to create two records. The first one would be an A record :

Hostname     Will Redirect To     TTL
@            Your Droplet's IP    800

The second record would be for your, this time, it would be a CNAME record

Hostname    Is An Alias of                TTL
wwww    800

Once you’ve done this, your issue should be resolved.

Regards, KDSys
