Website not resolving

I recently changed my DNS to Digital Ocean and I’m getting “This site can’t be reached” for both the domain and sub domain.

I can ping the IP of the server and a check at shows me the name servers and A record is resolved.

Any ideas or additional info you need to help me??

Note that it might take up to 24-48 hours for the DNS cache to clear over the Globe.

If your A record matches the IP address of the droplet when you do the dnschecker lookup then your site would start resolving soon.

Hope that this helps! Bobby
