Site isn't available

Hi, I followed this tutorial to configure my domain and DNS records for my site, and all things seem to line up correctly. It’s been over 48 hrs and my site still isn’t available using the domain name or ip address . Is there something else that needs to be configured? I’m running Ubuntu with nginx as my server. Is there something i’m missing? Thanks!

Double check that you have configured your DNS Correctly then use to ensure that the DNS had propagated (or is propagating) correctly. Then restart NGINX if you believe it could be a problem with the server, and check that you have opened ports 80 (for http) or 443 (for https) to ensure web traffic can be routed through your server.

Found the issue, site is now up. Thanks!
