Root domain (appcademy.ph) not pointing to droplet's IP address

Hi,

I’ve recently purchased a .ph domain (appcademy.ph) in GoDaddy. I’ve put the nameservers of Digital Ocean in Godaddy. And I’ve updated the DNS records in Digital Ocean. The www.appcademy.ph points to my droplet IP address (188.166.248.216) but when i ping appcademy.ph, it doesn’t point to my droplet IP address, instead in points to 203.119.4.201. What could be the problem here? Am I missing something?

Thanks.

PING appcademy.ph (188.166.248.216) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 188.166.248.216 (188.166.248.216): icmp_seq=1 ttl=49 time=203 ms

Probably the DNS resolvers you’re using still have the old values in cache. When cache expires everything will be ok.
