Hello @salmamehanny

The DNS seems to be working just fine at the moment. As already mentioned by Bobby it tends to take up some time in order to have the DNS resolving correctly.

Now you can export your site from wordpress.com and import it to a new WordPress installation on your droplet or if you’re planning on building a new website you can start the development right away.

Hi there,

Your domain name seems to be working as expected already. Usually once you make a DNS change it might take up to 24 hours for the DNS cache to clear over the Globe before you could see the new DNS records.

You can use the following DNS lookup tool to check your DNS records:

Hope that this helps!

Best,
