Problem pointing namecheap domain with droplet IP

I am trying to point the droplet with IP 46.101.95.249 to domain babyhealthandsafety.me I have followed these instructions https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-point-to-digitalocean-nameservers-from-common-domain-registrars and confirmed with namecheap the nameservers are correct but I’m still getting an ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE on the page. I’m not a programmer and this is driving me mad, it’s so hard to get support from digital ocean!

You might also try to see if namecheap has their own DNS manager that you can use to point your domain to that IP. I’ve found those to be faster. Secondly, you might want to do ipconfig flushdns to clear your local dns cache.

Hello friend!

The DNS settings look fine, but it is important to note that it can be up to 48 hours before your local DNS resolver updates to reflect the changes. In all honesty it is usually closer to 4-6 hours, but a new .me registration does tend to be closer to the 12-24 hour range.

Though I am seeing the DNS set correctly, the droplet itself does not have a web server listening and therefore there is currently no website loading. I can ping the droplet so I know that it is online, it seems that the software is either not yet installed or you may have turned the software off while you were working on it.

Kind Regards, Jarland
