Why does my GoDaddy domain not apply for droplet?

Posted February 16, 2018 3.4k views

I setup dns name servers on (see screenshot).
Then I setup domains in DigitalOcean web interface (add domain, dns records).
I checked the whois info.

I am trying to navigate in browser by dns name - ’` and it does not work.

What I need to do?
