Using DigitalOcean, domain not working

When I use DigitalOcean to host my discourse forum, I input my hostname, and it returns a warning. My proxy status is set to DNS only, using Cloudflare. I look to address this issue in a quick manner, as I need this for a community. Below is a photo of my console. Is there anything that I’m doing wrong, or missing? I’ve gotten past this step before.

It is almost certainly the case that your DNS record does not resolve to your droplet host name. The other possibility is that you have something else listening to port 80 and 443 (though I world expect a different error).

Yes, the DNS record goes directly to my droplet host name. When you said the second possibility, I thought about the fact that I have a google sites connected to my main domain. I’ll be sure to check my DNS records again.

Still, the domain isn’t working. I’m going to consult with friends, and ask their opinion.

The hostname does not exist:

○ → host
Host not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
