what can i do?
First, you need to go to your domain registrar (whoever that might me) and set the DNS servers for your domain to:
A.LACTLD.ORG 184.108.40.206 2801:14:a000:0:0:0:0:10
N2.NIC.EC 220.127.116.11 2801:0:60:0:0:0:0:1
N3.DNS.EC 2001:500:14:6039:ad:0:0:1 18.104.22.168
Second, you need to make sure you have A/AAAA records in Linode's Domain Manager connecting your domain to your Linode's IP address(es). If you are going to support email, you'll need an MX record and several TXT records for SPF, DKIM & DMARC. Also, for email, you'll need to set up reverse DNS (rDNS). There's a Linode guide about that.
Once you have all that done, you have to wait at least 48 hours for all of those DNS changes to propagate around the world.
If you make a mistake and have to correct something, it will take another 48 hours for your corrections to propagate around the world.
