I recently bought a domain of namecheap, I followed this guide to setup the DNS to point to my droplet.
I’ve also added the domain to my droplet following this other guide.
I then installed nginx to try and get a basic website running, however I am unable to connect to the website using the domain name (powa.dev), google chrome show me the “This site can’t be reached” page with the error “ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED”.
I tried using the IP of my droplet and I can access the website, I also tried to use
curl -4 www.powa.dev and the response I get is the html code of the index.
I can’t seem to find anyone else with the exact same problem and I’m a stuck in this situation as I’m new to hosting websites and using domain names, if anyone has a solution please let me know.
