Wordpress (1-click install) issue with This site can’t be reached

WordPress DNS Ubuntu 16.04

Hello there,

I set up my blog last evening, and I’ve started experiencing This site can’t be reached error, anytime I update something in thewp-admin section.

Error:

This site can’t be reached
edvins.io’s server IP address could not be found.
Try:

Checking the connection
Checking the proxy, firewall and DNS configuration
Running Network Diagnostics
ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED

Whois:

According to the whois edvins.io name server’s section, it seems to be pointing to the correct place.

Name Server: ns1.digitalocean.com
Name Server: ns2.digitalocean.com
Name Server: ns3.digitalocean.com

Droplet:

I’ve added a new domain there (edvins.io) which points to the correct droplet, but I still have no idea why it’s happening.

When you setup your Wordpress blog, did you use “www.edvins.io” as the domain name?
If so, you need to add a ‘www’ records to the dns.

Looks like ’www.edvins.io’ isn’t reachable. Definitely a dns issue there.
Everything else seems right.. May want to nuke the WP install and try again.
