Hello, i’d firstly like to apologise for the the lack of detail in the title and the lack of detail that’ll be in the post. I’m new to all of this and I have no idea what I’m doing.
Basically yesterday I made a digitalocean account, and I setup a droplet, followed the creation process to make a discourse site, however the site only shows when I type the IP address into the URL bar, if I type the hostname, I either get an error saying the website cannot be found or ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED.
I’ve tried using a personal website that I bought and never used, and I tried using the domain discourse.craftlads.com. Nothing seems to be working, like I said I can access the website and admin settings when I enter the IP into the URL bar, but not if I type the hostname in.
I’ve tried a lot of google searches and I can’t figure out what’s wrong, it’s probably a simple fix but I like I said i’m only 17 and i’m new to all this, so I honestly need the simple answer.
