in reply to [OT] Next steps in using DigitalOcean to host a website running Mojolicious

Hello Aldebaran,

> 1601009638 doesn't make sense to me as the first four numbers are to represent YYYY, and nothing happened in 1601 except that life was nasty, brutish, and short

..yes but in XVII century was easier to be hosted :)

the number you see there is the last modification of the SOA record, a classic UNIX timestamp

print scalar gmtime(1601009638)#Fri Sep 25 04:53:58 2020

You generally need an A record to make a name of your domain resolving into the IP of your VPS. Then you must configure Apache on the VPS to answer to that hostname (virtualhost).

DNS resolution are cached by clients so, once you put the A record it needs some time to propagate (you can check it here for example).

I'd modify the title of your post as off-topic: [OT]  Next steps in using DigitalOcean to host a website running Mojolicious
