Hi, i moved a domain’s dns to my Digitalocean droplet. But i cannot see any subdomains on the domain. But when i use an external DNS pointing to my droplet, subdomains work.

NOTE: The normal domain works perfectly, it is just the subdomains that are not working

My a record is set to “@” Is this not correct
