Why won't my Domain Name resolve

DigitalOcean Ubuntu 16.04

I had attempted to switch my domain name to another server's ip address. Now my domain won't resolve. The error I get is www.myDomain.com refused to connect. It was originally working when I had it linked to my first server. I had deleted the A name records and CNAME records and pointed it to the new server ip. The only records I didn't touch were the NS pointing to ns1.digitalocean.com ns2.digitalocean.com ns3.digitalocean.com. It doesn't make sense as an NSLookup to my domain name is pointing to the right ip address and my firewall allows http/https since I can do a get request using the ip address in the browser.

When you look at the digital ocean status though it says it directs to multiple locations. (even though I only have 2 A Names pointing to the same ip as the NSLookup) : /

What else am I missing that can get it to resolve?

Have you setup your vhosts correctly? What's the domain in question? Try cloudflare and see if you result with the same issue.
