Hi @mariocesar,

It seems like your A record hasn’t propagated. There could be a few reasons behind it.

The first and most likely reason would be the DNS propagation. It might take up to 24 hours however unlikely for your DNS to fully propagate.

The second reason might be related to your Nameservers. Are you sure you are making the changes where your Nameservers are?

The third and last reason, it’s possible webmin hasn’t been properly installed. I’ll suggest following this tutorial in such a case - https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-webmin-on-ubuntu-18-04
