I used the now cli to add a record with the ip address of my Digital Ocean Droplet but it still wont work. Maybe I need to also use DO nameserver?

Hmmm. I'm still on V1. Also, I did create an A record pointing to the correct IP address of my DO droplet but the connection is timing out. Does is take a while to propagate? I thought it was instant.
