Websites are timing out after a new domain is added to droplet

I purchased a new domain yesterday and added to the droplet today. I see that all the domains (including the new one) are timing out intermittently. I have checked the logs but they are clean. ping doesn’t show any packet loss. I can ssh to the droplet as well. Could someone give me a clue as to what’s wrong?


I just did a tracert from my windows box. Here’s how it looks like:

  1     4 ms     3 ms     3 ms
  2    69 ms    33 ms    37 ms
  3     *        *        *     Request timed out.
  4    33 ms     *       32 ms
  5    76 ms    45 ms    31 ms []
  6   386 ms   444 ms   470 ms
  7   347 ms   358 ms   319 ms []
  8   339 ms   455 ms   406 ms
  9     *        *        *     Request timed out.
 10   404 ms     *      374 ms  drp.let.ip

Any clue?

I’m seeing some high latency along the route starting at Also, try a traceroute from your droplet to your home IP to see the culprit there.

I don’t think this timeout issue has anything to do with this new domain.
