Question

Problems when configuring DNS with DigitalOcean service

Yesterday, I have set up a host server and migrate my previous wordpress site to the new host. I did this according to How to Migrate WordPress from Shared Hosting to a Cloud Server with Zero Downtime https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-migrate-wordpress-from-shared-hosting-to-a-cloud-server-with-zero-downtime step by step.

And then I set up host name with Digital Ocean according to https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-set-up-a-host-name-with-digitalocean

My site: imink.net is now still not working. I can ping imink.net, but I can’t ping www.imink.net

and when I enter dig -t NS imink.net @ns1.digitalocean.com, it returns:

; <<>> DiG 9.8.3-P1 <<>> -t NS imink.net @ns1.digitalocean.com ;; global options: +cmd ;; Got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 40355 ;; flags: qr aa rd; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 3, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0 ;; WARNING: recursion requested but not available

if you run Apache, then there is a file in your root called .htaccess that can control your server in many ways such as adding www. in front of your domain or allow / deny visitors from seeing your site and so on… <br> <br>as I said, if you have misconfigured rules there, they will cause you some issues. <br> <br>I just checked your site and it seems fine though!! <br>

@FMCB, What do you mean having .hataccess with rules written there? <br>

I hope you didn’t misunderstand which one to remove. I meant the * and @ record.
