How do I add my domain from a shared hosting account

I have a domain , with Switched my name servers to's name servers there about four days ago.

First, I chose the master dns zone option over the slave option.I enterd an A record for the site, the ip address and hostname which I had named the server too.
DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN for the domain when I look it up

I'm a newbie to server admin and just need the bare minimum to get started.Could anyone help out

Hey @musharukwa94, right now I'm seeing is still directed towards non-Linode name servers and not resolving from there:

$ dig +trace | grep
; <<>> DiG 9.10.6 <<>> +trace           172800  IN      NS           172800  IN      NS

I'd check with your registrar to make sure that there aren't any issues with the changes you've made. Otherwise your Linode DNS Manager configuration sounds fine, but here's our guide on using it in case it's helpful.
