Static site on Apps platform shows old deployments in connected custom domains

I previously deployed my Vite+ReactJS website as a static site on the Digital Ocean App Platform. It was initially connected to my domain ( and and everything was working fine. However, I encountered some issues and decided to destroy the app and create a new one from the same GitHub repository.

The new app link is:

This link shows the latest changes from my GitHub repository correctly. However, the domains ( and which were connected again (changed the CNAME again for @ and www) are still showing the previous version of my site instead of the latest version that is visible on the Digital Ocean app link.

I have tried

  • ipconfig /flushdns (Clearing the DNS cache in Windows)
  • Removed website cache in the browser
  • Tried to open the custom domain in incognito and another browser as well.

Hi there,

Keep in mind that once you make a DNS change it can take up to 24 hours for the DNS cache to clear over the Globe. Even if you clear your local DNS cache, your ISP might still have this cached for a few hours.

Let me know how this goes!
