Build new site on same domain

Hello. I bought a domain before some months from GoDaddy. Then, I built a site from a different site host using wordpress. However, my subscription to this site has expired and I want to create a new site to the same domain using GoDaddy as host. I purchased a plan in GoDaddy and assigned a new wordpress site on my domain. However, when I try to enter on WP admin, site doesn't load and I get this massage "

(mydomain name)’s server IP address could not be found.

DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN". I am not expert on sites, DNS, IP'S etc.
Can someone tell me what is happening? Thanks.

Re: Build new site on same domain

Find the appropriate IP address for your hosting account (looks like 123.456.78.90).

cPanel: https://www.godaddy.com/help/what-is-my-websites-ip-address-in-my-cpanel-hosting-account-16112?

Managed WordPress: https://www.godaddy.com/help/view-my-ip-address-8934?

 

Make sure you are using Go Daddy nameservers for the domain.

Double check these records in the DNS
