As I was following this tutorial https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/networking/dns/quickstart/, I configured the nameservers on my registar website. It looks like this:
It has been four hours ago now and my website helmutlotti.nl still isn’t accessible.
In the meantime, I installed the Nginx server on Ubuntu 20.04 succesfully and when I access my ip-address, I can see that the Nginx server is properly installed. My conclusion is that the ip-address is properly functioning, but there must be something wrong with the DNS settings.
I troubleshooted with the WHOIS and Dig commands via this tutorial https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/dns-tips-and-tricks, but nothing seems wrong to me there.
What do you guys think? Have I done something wrong in the settings?
