WordPress Site Gets Redirected to a Parked Domain

Hi, I’m using WordPress on Nginx, Ubuntu 14.04. I’ve already pointed the Namecheap DNS NS to DO. Also followed the tutorial here:

The site does get loaded when visited. But sometimes it gets redirected to a parked domain. When refreshed a couple of times after a few minutes, the site gets loaded again. I’ve already checked whois, and NS are those of DO’s.

Also added an A Record, pointing at my server’s IP address. Why is it redirecting to a parked domain? Please help. Thanks!

Hi @sierracircle, thank you for the quick reply! I made the changes yesterday. Okay, I will sleep on it and be patient. :)

Last questioin, is it necessary to add the domain name,, as an A Record? Or the @ Record is sufficient enough?
