New user frustration with pointing domain to Linode
Going nuts trying to get my domain names to point to my linode servers. I created a site locally and went to bluehost and had everything setup only to find that their service is spotty confirmed by a 3hr + outage. Anyways I stumbled accross linode set and signed right up…
So I am all set, if i map to my IP I can see my site so I know it is working. But when I type in my domain name it goes to a default Bluehost page. My domains are with Godaddy and I changed the name server from the bluehost servers to the 5 linodes per the getting started guide but it still is not working i am not sure what to do? I did the reverse DNS and I got an email saying my website domains have had been changed. I tried that checkdns or whatever and all these servers are pinging with my new IP address what else can I do?
Thanks in advance.
PS i am very much a newbie so if you could state thing simply it would be much appreciated. I enjoy learning about all this stuff.
Please provide a domain that is exhibiting this behavior, so we can help diagnose.
my IP address is 188.8.131.52
I switched my nameserver on godaddy to
