I’m attempting to set up a discourse droplet.
I went through the steps of changing dns records and nameservers on name.com for my domain poetrynear.me. I copied and pasted everything from the instructions. I am using name.com for the domain and sendgrid for smtp email. At some point I was able to access the console and recieved the “successful install” message in the console. I closed it, typed in www.poetrynear.me in my browser and nothing. I cannot access the website, or the droplet, or the discourse admin page.
This is my first time using this technology and it’s just a little frustrating.
Can someone please let me know what I am doing wrong, if anything. Should I just delete the droplet altogether and start over?

The domain name is resolving tested from here and the site is loading. Can you confirm if the issue is still present from your side?
Have in mind that DNS changes always take some time in order to update. You can always use our DNS lookup tool to check if the settings are correct
It seems like you’ve managed to fix the problem already. It sounds like that the problem was caused due to DNS caching, 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 before you could see the new records.
Hope that this helps!
