not working but works

Today I created a Ubuntu 18.04 with lamp, I have configured virtual host correctly and setup dns using linode interface but only loads while still loads old site from previous host.

I have removed my domain from that host and updated Name servers at my domain registrar.

In Linode DNS management:

A records -
blank then IP address
www then IP address
* then IP address

Can someone please let me know if I did something wrong?

Here's what I have… is what's registered at my domain registrar (which is not Linode)…in this order:

  • blank then IP address (for

  • mail then IP address (for…I also have an MX record and rDNS for

  • www then IP address (for

IMHO, you don't need this:

* then IP address

I hope this helps.

P.S. The usual propagation time around the internet is 48 hrs…which starts AFTER Linode makes it's DNS changes…which they batch up every 2? hours.

Thanks for the response, I think its some sort of problem with my computer. When I use mobile everything works fine, I also tried some virtual browsers online and they load correct version of site. I have cleared cache on my pc, did cleanup of c drive but nothing is working.

Any suggestions please?

Did you flush the DNS cache on your local PC?
